Secondus To Buhari; Reduce Battle Fronts, Tackle Problems.
Chris Steven,  Abuja 
The immediate past Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Prince Uche Secondus has charged President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government to stop the unnecessary fight and address the myriad of problems facing the nation.

Secondus, in a statement noted that the unnecessary fight was causing more problems for the country. 

The former Deputy National Chairman noted that rather than strive to address the major socio- 
economic issues weighing down Nigerians due to the confusion and lack of 
direction of the government in the last one year, the All Progressives Congress (APC) is rather busy creating more battle fronts and compounding the challenges of the 

He said: “Today under APC leadership, the country has become a whole theatre of 
acrimony with agitations here and there with no clear sign of solution in sight forcing political watchers to question if the country is disintegrating.

“Even the Boko  Haram issue that was supposed to be progressing well has run into troubled waters because of the confusion in the ruling party.

“Ditto the federal government’s anti corruption fight is even skewed due to insincerity as ministers already confirmed to be corrupt internationally continue to move untouched while governors with immunity are harassed daily.

“Rather than confront the various challenges overwhelming the country, APC is currently bleeding, soaked in its own greed and the obvious consequence is that a house divided against itself is bound to fall and the party is already falling.”

Secondus said that the federal government under Buhari’s watch is gradually eroding all indices of democratic principles especially those anchored on the rule of law and seperation of power as it has continued to violate all rules of free speech as enshrined “in our status.”

“Unlike what the world is watching in Britain where democracy is being put into action and in America where President Barak Obama is being routinely criticized, Nigerians are leaving in fear, the press, judiciary and politicians are in heavy apprehension because of the 
draconian system of our operatives who come after them for airing their views,” he said.

The former PDP Deputy Chairman advised the government to respect various organs of governance and stop seeing himself as the Lord Mayor of state governors and the National Assembly as this will amount to dictatorship.

“The on going attempt to humiliate and intimidate the National Assembly is dangerous as the parliament remains the opium of democracy.

“While federal government creates more and more problems, it leaves unattended to very critical projects, for example, after the hype created by his government on cleaning up Ogoniland, nothing is happening in the project while Governor Neysom Wike massive opening up of Ogoni roads neglected over the years is evident,” he said.
