Failed State: APC Claps Back, Responds to PDP
The All Progressives Congress has responded to the Peoples Democratic Party and other commentators that Nigeria was nowhere near a failed State.
In an earlier report, PDP stated that Nigeria was becoming a failed State under the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
In a statement titled, “Nigeria Nowhere Close to a Failed State – APC,” signed by the Secretary of the Caretaker/ Extra-Ordinary National Planning Committee, Senator John Akpanudoedehe, in Abuja, on Sunday.
Akpanudoedehe said, “The President Muhammadu Buhari government is not oblivious to the country’s challenges and is visibly and frontally addressing them.
“From the economy to security, it is easy, to sum up, Nigeria with some recently recorded security incidents and the economic downturn. However, this government has displayed the political will and capacity to contain any criminal/terrorist activity and return the economy to growth.
“President Buhari’s administration which sees the urgent need to have a better policing system for the country and is embarking on sweeping police reforms and supporting community policing is not governing a country close to becoming a failed state.
“Amid the COVID-19 induced economic slowdown, President Buhari’s administration which is stimulating the economy by preventing business collapse; supporting labour-intensive sectors such as agriculture; creating jobs through infrastructural investments in roads, rails, bridges; promoting manufacturing and local production at all levels to attain self-sufficiency in critical sectors of the economy, is not governing a country close to becoming a failed state.”
The party scribe noted that President Buhari’s regime, which he said, was implementing one of the world’s largest and far-reaching social investment programmes targeting the very poor and other vulnerable groups, including women and persons living with disabilities through pro-poor spending, is not governing a country close to becoming a failed state.
