The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Oyegun, lamented that the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP),had done a heinous damage to the Nigerian economy worst than one could imagine.
Dr Oyegun who was represented by the National deputy chairman APC south west Engr Segun Oni on a solidarity visit to the Benue flood victims, attributed the current recession being experienced in Nigeria to the PDP.
According to him, when the PDP was leaving they were throwing money on the ground for people to struggle for it, just to make them believe there was enough money and after leaving there was nothing left for the incoming government.
On the issue of nonpayment of salaries, salary arrears and pension being owed workers in some states which Benue workers are currently on strike, the chairman said, that the issue is not only peculiar to Benue, it is inherited from the past government.
He appealed to journalists to educate the people and the entire workers of this country and Benue State in particular not to forget too soon where the present administration is coming from which Benue is not exception.
The number one leader of APC enjoined Benue people to give their governor the desired support to enable him succeed the purposes for which they elected him.
Responding the Benue State governor Samuel Ortom commended the APC government, his counterparts from other states, NGOs individuals and other philanthropists for their support, adding that he is overwhelmed by their show of concern.
