Caucus of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in House of Representatives, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to justify the confidence of the citizens that voted for him.
In a statement issued Tuesday by Minority Leader of the House, Hon. Leo Ogor, the Caucus called on the President to take urgent steps by sending the right signals to Nigerians as a way to bolster the confidence reposed in him to lead the Nation.
“We join all other citizens in thanking God for this New Year and the fresh opportunity of a new beginning; as the National Assembly resumes, members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) House of Representatives Caucus intend to renew our commitment to the tenets of democracy and board-based development in Nigeria.
“We must all brace up to the increasingly challenging factors across the landscape as all citizens, including those in government and active civil society organizations like the BBOG movement have critical roles to play.”
“A biased anti-corruption war solely focused on those considered as political adversaries will further open the treasury to looting rather than implement the required safeguards, genuine change will reflect in proper management of the economy, an end to economic recession, addressing worsening unemployment and resolving violent clashes in which many innocent people continue to lose their lives in various communities.
“President Muhammadu Buhari has to be poised for action because the challenges facing our citizens are immense, governmental resources are increasing becoming scarce and Nigerians cant afford to be patient when their livelihood is being threatened, he has to face the business of governance to bridge the division across our great Nation”, the statement said.
