Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has assured that it would revamp the economy, restore democratic tenets and the rule of law in the country, if it was returned to power in 2019.
Its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, who stated this while receiving a delegation of PDP officials from Kogi state at the weekend, said “the only way to end the economic recession, human rights abuses and daily bloodletting bedeviling our nation in the last three years is for all Nigerians to rally with the PDP and vote out President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC in 2019.”
He said: “It is now clear to all that President Buhari and his dysfunctional APC are the main problems of Nigeria today. Not only that they have ruined our once robust economy with their restrictive economic policies, their nepotic tendencies are directly responsible for the escalation of hostilities and bloodletting in various parts of our country today. “On our part, the PDP believes in a united Nigeria and the potentials of Nigerians as a people.
That is why the PDP always run on democratic principles and allinclusive policies that effectively galvanise the productive energies of our people for national cohesion and economic prosperity, as witnessed in the 16 years of PDP in governance. “So, the solution is for Nigerians to brace up and rally on the platform of the repositioned PDP to rescue and rebuild our nation, come 2019.”
Speaking at the event, leader of the delegation, Idris Lokoja, said “Nigerians are collectively looking up to the PDP as the only credible platform to rescue our nation and ensure a peaceful and prosperous nation.”
‘Why Swisstrade doesn’t joke with Corporate Social Responsibility’
By Our Correspondent Swisstrade Securities Nigeria Limited, the leading manufacturer of armoured security doors, has disclosed reasons it engages in lots of corporate social responsibility. According to the fi rm, it “is borne by its innate desire to impact meaningfully to the growth of the Nigerian economy and enhance the wellbeing of its citizens.”
Chairman, Chief Executive Officer of the company, Dr Mike Ezeaju, made the disclosure yesterday in an interview with newsmen in Lagos. He said: “In Anambra, Awgbu town, for example, we constructed 3.7 kilometres of nylon-tarred, high quality road at the cost of three hundred and sixty eight million naira (N368, 000, 000). In the same state, we constructed ultra modern, very large school buildings, and have thus far awarded scholarships to 63 students, males and females.
In Lagos also, we are collaborating with the local police to refurbish a divisional office and fi x many of their operational vehicles.” On why the company spent so much on a stretch of road, Ezeaju said: “The roads were so bad that market women and men fall short of bringing their products to market for sale.
All the farmers find it difficult to bring their produce to market for sale. By fixing the road, the economy of the benefitting localities, the state, and by extension, that of Nigeria is being lifted.”
