NDP Scores PDP Low


The National Democratic Party, NDP, has scored  the ruling People’s Democratic  Party, PDP, low stating  that it has failed the people of Nigeria in its last 12  years of ruling.

The National Vice Chairman of the party, Otunba Babatunde Edu, made this remark in  Lagos State recently while speaking on the state of the nation.

Edu particularly blamed the ruling party on the poor state of electricity supply in  the country.

According to him, “failure to provide adequate electricity in the country has led to  massive closure of industries and this has made many industrious citizens of this  country unemployed.

“The situation has had a multiplier effect on the society with crimes on the rise.”

Edu also spoke on the recent allegation made by Dr. Lamido Sanusi Lamido, the  Central Bank of Nigeria governor, that 25 per cent of Nigeria budget were expended  on the salaries of the federal legislators, the situation he described unfortunate,  as such huge percentage of budget could be on a few number of people in the  developing country like Nigeria.

He promised that if NDP is voted into offices in the coming elections, it would  improve on power situation in the country, reorganised the educational sector and  making it accessible, affordable and available to everyone.

It will also deal with the structural inbalance in the country as well as embark on  massive road construction and rehabilitation.

Edu advised the ruling party to combat the unemployment, as such is the only way of  tackling the growing crime rate in the country.
