The PDP North-East Chairman of the Ali Modu Sheriff faction, Emmanuel Njiwah also said Nigeria has become a nation of story under the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Njiwah added that “Anybody with a plan for Nigeria cannot come into power and within the spate of a year, plunge the largest economy on the continent into recession.
“They have actually devastated the economy of Nigeria but they kept blaming the PDP. But the fact remains that as of May 29, 2015, Nigeria was the largest economy in Africa and as of May 2016, we have become a nation of sorrow.”
He also expressed shock that Buhari’s administration led Nigeria’s economy to a recession, just in the first year of its existence.

While assuring PDP members that the crisis rocking the party will be resolved, Njiwah said “The PDP needs to come back. Is there anybody who is not suffering here? Those who voted them in and even we that didn’t vote them are suffering too. Our markets are not different. Our filling stations are not different. We are buying from the same markets.
“We want to buy a bag of rice for N7,000. We want to buy fuel at N87 per litre.”
This is coming on the heels of President Muhammadu Buhari's promise to Nigerians that he will leave Nigeria better than he met it.
