The Labour Party has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to settle down to governance and address the economic woes facing the country.
In a statement signed by the National Chairman of the party, Abdulkadir Abdulsalam, the party said Buhari’s style of administration should be blamed for the challenges currently facing the country. The party called on him to concentrate on fixing the problems by involving real professionals rather than fighting from all sides.
The party added that with the current economic crisis, kidnapping, terrorism and other social vices would be on the rise.
“The President should know by now that with Nigeria in economic crisis and the lacklustre attitude of his government to setting up a powerful economic machine, there are only two courses open to the government: the monetarist deflationary measure and the protectionist method.
“Unfortunately, an economy under heavy government regulation cannot function properly but rather be exposed to a lot of unpleasant things like killing, kidnapping, warfare, padding, delay, economic downturn and impunity will become the linen and ephod for the mainstream expression of governance,” the statement said.
