Opposition political events have scored the administration of the ruling All Progressives Congress led by President Bola Tinubu low on supply of excellent life to Nigerians, one yr after mounting the saddle.

But the APC National Publicity Director, Bala Ibrahim, disagreed with the opposition, which he labelled as a coalition of confused individuals.

 “Since coming to power, President Bola Tinubu has given the country a direction in almost everything it needs. Nigerians are now beginning to reap the benefits of his foresight and good planning. In fact, testimonies from the people have shown that come 2027, Nigerians are not just going to vote for him. They will vote for him overwhelmingly,” Ibrahim claimed.

However, the Peoples Democratic Party described Tinubu’s first yr in workplace as probably the most difficult in Nigeria’s historical past because the Civil War between 1967 and 1970.

The President, who took workplace on May 29, 2023, driving on his coverage doc tagged the Renewed Hope Agenda.

In an announcement on Tuesday by its National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba, the PDP mentioned Tinubu’s financial insurance policies had worsened issues for Nigerians.

Ologunagba mentioned, “The PDP insists that the present rising insecurity, excruciating poverty, financial hardship and common despondency within the nation necessitating the fleeing of 1000’s of Nigerians, particularly the youths, from our nation additional verify that there is no such thing as a hope in sight with the APC within the saddle.

“It is obvious that inflicting ache and distress on Nigerians stays the coverage thrust of successive APC administration,  which turned heightened by the not properly thought-out twin anti-people insurance policies of removing of gasoline subsidy and the floating of the Naira with out due consideration for the residents’ welfare and safety.

“As if these weren’t sufficient, the APC administration continues in its anti-people insurance policies within the arbitrary hike in electrical energy tariff and imposition of a number of taxes on the already impoverished Nigerians with no corresponding tangible improvement directed in the direction of the welfare of the individuals.

“The consequences of these ill-thought and ill-implemented policies without any cushioning measures to mitigate the resultant rising cost and associated hardship on the masses have driven many into early death and extreme poverty.”

Ologunagba said that almost all of Nigerians had turn into disillusioned with President Tinubu’s administration.

PDP Publicity scribe said “The APC’s persevering with use of poverty as a weapon of mass destruction is chargeable for the widespread despondency within the nation the place individuals are solely preoccupied with survival somewhat than present curiosity within the authorities insurance policies and actions which largely alienate them.

“It is stunning that whereas the Federal Government introduced the removing of gasoline subsidy forcing Nigerians to pay extra for gasoline, trillions of naira remains to be being reportedly paid as gasoline subsidy allegedly into non-public financial institution accounts related to corrupt APC leaders.

“Sadly, the APC in its insensitivity and disregard for the people has not bordered to render an account to Nigerians with respect to the expected savings accruable to the Federation Account as a result of the announced fuel subsidy removal.”

To increase the price of any commodity by over 400 per cent from day one by a new administration is not only callous, it is cruel, dangerous, and evil, it shows the mind and heart of the Presidency and elected officials of the day and their advisers.”

Addressing the theme “Advocating National Renewal and Democracy: Utilizing the Strength of Collaboration to Uplift Nigeria,” Nwosu commented, “There are numerous policy failures that have put all levels, branches, and government agencies on high alert, while our response mechanisms are ineffective. This has led to constant policy reversals throughout President Tinubu’s administration.”

The financial framework of the Central Bank of Nigeria can not be trusted to stabilise the naira as our overseas reserve has been depleted to all-time low. The administration goes cap-in-hand searching for traders and loans. But the environmental evaluation is damning.

“The security situation is awful. Bandits still occupy many local governments and farm areas. Kidnapping for ransom and other vices are rampant. The streets are not safe. Transportation is grinding to a halt; either by air or road. The road infrastructure and security situation discourage road travel apart from fuel costs. The airports are becoming ghost and isolated areas.”

Also, the Coalition of United Political Parties mentioned inside a yr in workplace, President  Tinubu and the APC  had ruined hope and weaponised poverty in Nigeria.

The CUPP National Spokesperson, Mark Adebayo, said throughout a press convention in Abuja on Tuesday.

CUPP expressed disappointment, stating they’d anticipated President Tinubu to carry out a minimum of barely higher than his predecessor, President Muhammadu Buhari, in areas such because the economic system, safety, training, well being, and infrastructure.

Adebayo, joined by different CUPP members, remarked, “For a authorities that got here into energy with the engaging mantra of Hope Renewed, there’s hardly any sector of governance that anybody can level at with any glimmer of hope on the horizon.

“What we have now had within the final one yr is hope ruined and poverty weaponized as if to punish Nigerians for the electoral alternative they made throughout final yr’s presidential election.

“We had assumed that President Bola Tinubu would, a minimum of, carry out slightly higher than the disastrous administration of his predecessor, President Muhammadu Buhari, within the areas of economic system, safety, training, well being, infrastructure and so forth.

“Alas! Judging by the last one year of another APC government, we can safely conclude that the country’s situation has not only worsened significantly but even worsening by the day.”

But countering the opposition events, the APC National Director, Bala Ibrahim, mentioned, “I feel the CUPP has now turn into the coalition of confusionists. They are fully confused as a result of Nigerians have rejected them. Their membership is at all times decreasing by the day as a result of most people within the opposition shifting to the APC. In truth, there’s a stampede now to affix the ruling celebration.

“That is as a result of they’ve seen what the APC is doing. Because of this rejection by Nigerians, they’re dwelling now in phantasm. They are disunited, confused and suppose all people is in that class.

“So this coalition of confusionists is getting it wrong. Probably they are in slumber, they need to wake up from their sleep and face reality.”
