- Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led federal government has not yet won the war against terrorism in Nigeria
- PDP accused the government of not buying a single hardware since it came to power
- The party claimed that more people die on daily basis in the country because Boko Haram terrorist has not been demolished
The People’s Democratic Party slammed the All Progressives Congress-led federal government for banking on its ‘little’ gains in the war against terrorism in Nigeria.
PDP, represented by its national youth leader, Segun Sowummi, made this known Tuesday, November 21, when he appeared as a guest on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily.
NAIJ.com gathered that Sowunmi’s comments come days after the Buhari administration presented its mid-term scorecard, as well as launched a book on the successes recorded by the administration upon coming on board in 2015.
The book was written by the media team of the President Muhammadu Buhari, including Femi Adesina and Garba Shehu.
Sowunmi said: ''They have not bought a single hardware, all the equipment they are using to martial out their python dance and crocodile smile are the equipment bought by our government.
“More people are dying in Nigeria today. They will tell us they have won the war, they have not won the war. Then Boko Haram has been demolished, it has not been demolished.''

On the issue of the economy, Sowunmi berated the APC for failing to create an enabling environment for business to strive in the country.
Accordin to him, ''The problem they (APC) have is that they have not completely convinced themselves that it is not the business of government to build businesses.
“The simple business of government is to create an enabling environment, do the laws that are stable, be consistent, and have policies that can allow private sector people take advantage.”
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had reported that political infighting was threatening to mar the coming convention of the PDP scheduled to take place on December 9.
The crisis was triggered by the disagreement over the list of panelists to conduct the ward delegates election ahead of the party’s convention.
