The Daily Crucible | Saturdayday, July 30, 2022

Labour Party says the rising wave of insurgency, banditry, the spiralling inflation, prolonged ASUU strikes and dislocation and decimation of Nigeria Economy by the sudden high cost of exchange rate of dollar to naira portend grave danger to the nation's democracy and 2023 general elections.

Labour Party says the inability or unwillingness of President Muhammadu Buhari - led All Progressives Congress (APC) controlled Federal Government may by a hidden ploy to truncate democracy and the forthcoming general elections, ostensibly to allow Buhari stays in power longer than May 2023.

The party's National Publicity Secretary,  Com. Arabambi Abayomi, stated this on Saturday in a astatement made available to The Daily Crucible.

Arabambi warns that the cost of aviation fuel to the threats of President Buhari impeachment by the Senate over insecurities, kidnapping and banditry could plunge Nigeria into further lawlessness, endemic executive rascality, economy flip -flop and policy somersault.

He however urged Nigerians not to despair but to see hope in Peter Obi, the LP Presidential candidatem

Of course if it is not acceptable to allow APC in Government, then the PDP is equally unacceptable since both are one and the same in all and every ramifications.

He said, "It is becoming very clear that the APC Government is very much committed to a deliberate and conscious plan to run the Nation into a complicated set of sectoral ruins thus rendering the Nation bankrupt with the objective of compromising a political change through the ballots in 2023 .

 "The game plan is to ensure that the Nation is recklessly driven to suddenly find herself acutely insolvent to give a room for the need to postpone the election and thus make a way for an extension for APC in Government as there can be no vacuum in the Governance of the Nation.

"As at today, the gathering storm threatening the socio- economic and political well- being of the nation are on very many fronts. A few days back, it was announced that Nigeria is broke as the debt payment exceeded the revenue by over N300bn in just the first quarter.
The US dollar now exchanges at the rate of N710 to one dollar 

"The Government is yet unable to find a solution to the many crisis in the Aviation Industry in Nigeria. As at this moment, the cost of Aviation fuel has flown up to over N800 per liter from N300.While aviation fuel worldwide is said to cost about 40 per cent of an airline’s operating cost globally, the present hike has shut Nigeria’s operating cost to about 95 per cent.

 "As a result,the cost of domestic flight has come up triple.By the statement credited to the Fed Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning Mrs Ahmed Zainab revealed that the Nation's debt service cost in the first Quarter of 2022 was N1.94 trillion which read N300bn higher than the actual revenue during the same period.

"This is an obvious confirmation of the failure of the ruling Government. The Government is not uninformed enough to realize that the implementation of the existing needed reforms was in some Government closet gathering dust .

 "The Government aggravated the issue of foreign exchange by all kinds of restrictions that limited sources of earning foreign exchange . Many Airlines on the domestic routes have stopped operating while cancellation and disruptions are the order in the domestic flights operations.

"All reasonable and patriotic Nigerians should be seriously concerned by the news report on the attacks on the Security Guards of President. How can a Government be so inefficient and insufficient enough to tolerate this level of criminalities and yet keep telling the Citizens that they are safe when the symbol of the Nation himself is completely unsafe and under threats of attack ?.

 "Nigeria is not and should not be allowed to be ruled cluelessly into a Banana Republic. A Government that comes up short on every scale and measure in providing security for the citizens has no business in Government.

" Posterity will not fail to record the Minister of Finance in all of her roles in the embarrassing mismanagement of the finances of the nation. Sometimes back Mrs Ahmed Zainab insulted the Governor of Edo State Obaseki when the latter raised alarm on the reckless financial policies of the PMB Government.

"Labour Party now seizes this window of opportunity to seek total support for its candidates in the 2023 election including the face of hope, Peter Obi , the presidential candidate of LP.

"This is to change the current poor state of the nation. Electricity supply for example in the country remains a matter of very deep concern. That our nation, the Giant of Africa with a population of over 200 million where the rats and mice looting the National Treasury steadily and unendingly on the watch of President Buhari, where we generate less than 4000 megawatts, a terribly shameful 10% of what South Africa with about 60 million people generates and over which the country's declared state of emergency.

"This current APC Government is a great mistake and Nigerians should be deliberately ready and prepared to send the Party out of Government.

"The alternative is the face of hope, Peter Obi/DATTI presidential mandate in LP.
 Nigerians should choose a people - oriented leadership and support the face of hope Peter Obi in Labour Party.

"Of course if it is not acceptable to allow APC in Government, then the PDP is equally unacceptable since both are one and the same in all and every ramifications.

 "Further more, LP here at puts it on public notice that the APC Government and its fellow conspirators will be fully, firmly and strongly resisted by all lawful means if the Government tries to play any game at attempting to stay in office beyond May 2023 ."
