The African Democratic Congress, ADC, in the South-East zone, says amid rising insecurity, kidnapping, armed robbery, banditry, ritual killings, hunger among others in the country, the party is poised to pull Nigerians and the people of South-East out from the wheels of destruction.
Addressing newsmen during the meeting of the zone held in Umuahia on Saturday, The National Vice Chairman South-East, ADC, Chilos Godsent, said the realities in the country, especially in the South-East region, calls for urgent action to redirect the pendulum for good.
He decried that Nigeria, a country blessed with human and material resources, is heading for destruction due to maladministration from the All Progressives Congress APC and The People’s Democratic Party, (PDP), adding that these unpalatable situations have further deterred investors from investing hugely in critical sectors in the country.
Godsent, who decried the poor infrastructure, absence of workable education system as well as non-achievable economic blue print in the South-East, maintained that these issues have been fingered as vices fueling agitations in the region.
He noted that the only way The South-East zone can be salvaged from her deplorable state, is for people of the zone to completely reject the clueless administrations of the APC and PDP in the zone, pointing out that the ADC, offers better opportunity to Nigerians and South-East, as the party has reeled out economic policies as well as identified ways to tackle the rising insecurity in the nation if elected in 2023.
On the continuous strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, (ASUU), The ADC South-East, charged The APC led Federal Government to salvage the dying educational sector by heeding to critical and germane demands by Varsity Lecturers, stressing that Students cannot continue staying at home with it’s attendant consequences.
While speaking on the Water Resources Bill, presently on the floor of the National Assembly, the ADC South-East Zonal Working Committee urged the lawmakers to suspend further deliberations on the Bill, stating that the Bill is obnoxious as it arms the federal government with much powers to regulate fishing, dredging activities among others done on the water.
