Senate Minority Leader, Senator Abba Moro criticized the Bola Tinubu-led federal government for not addressing the current economic difficulties in the country.

The former Minister of Interior stated that everything about governance under the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is flawed and ineffective.

In a statement from his media aide, Emmanuel Eche’Ofun John, Moro mentioned that the cost of living is too high and the current administration has been unable to alleviate the economic challenges.

Senator Moro also commented that the APC government, which came into power in 2015, appears to lack direction and a clear plan of action.

“Nigerians are hurting. The cost of living is so high that Nigerians cannot afford two-square meals a day. Even the reported appreciation of the naira against the dollar, which is a mind game being played on Nigerians by the APC government, has no impact on the prices of things in the market.

Things are getting worse by the day, and in the face of this grinding suffering, the government has gone ahead to increase the electricity tariff. I think this is the height of insensitivity,” he lamented.

Moro stated that it is unjust to claim that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has not been engaging in opposition politics.

He said the “Opposition is not fighting. We are not going to war with ourselves but we have been voicing out the ills of the APC government.”

Regarding disciplinary actions against party members who have misbehaved, Moro mentioned that the party’s National Executive Council (NEC) will not simply gather names of members who have acted in ways that harmed the party during the recent elections while sitting in Abuja.

He said: “Relevant organs of the party have relevant responsibilities to discharge to the party. NEC cannot sit in Abuja and write names of party members A or B that acted to undermine the party in the last elections, that’s the duty of the various ward EXCOs.”
