Bode George laments the lack of fuel and naira; Questions the Opposition Parties’ Silence

Posted by

Bode George, the former deputy national chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), has questioned the silence of all opposition political parties regarding their failure to criticize the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) for causing the country’s turmoil.

His response was prompted by the difficulties Nigerians were facing as a result of fuel and naira shortages.

George criticized the leadership of his party and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, for not speaking up about the lack of fuel and naira.

The leader of the PDP was perplexed as to why the opposition party had not questioned the ruling party regarding its policies, which have caused Nigerians discomfort.

“Without mincing words or trying to raise an alarm, the global golden rule called “order” — a legal and constitutional process of conformity with law or decorum — seems to have taken a flight from Nigeria’s political, economic, and social lives,” he said in an address to reporters at his residence.

“While Nigeria is beset on all fronts, there appears to be a graveyard silence due to this anomaly, which is a deviation from regulation or normalcy.

“Every day, the political system experiences something strange or unusual, which is the cause of the socioeconomic turmoil that permeates our entire landscape.

Nigeria’s gradual descent into a state of enduring hopelessness is heartbreaking.

“In all candor, I am unable to comprehend the logic of silence in light of the cliff edge into which the APC government has pushed the Nigerian state, where there appear to be no opposing viewpoints calling for the ruling government to reconsider.

The PDP, one of our parties, and other parties like the Labour Party, SDP, and NNPP appear to have agreed with the current machinations.

“I wonder what hatred, evil, or irrationality would inspire a rational person to plunge Nigeria into the state of hopelessness, annihilation, and the utmost suffering of its citizens at this time.

Due to the state of formlessness that the ruling party has thrown Nigeria into, I also consider it utterly absurd for anyone to campaign for the APC or to contest on its platform.

“Where is Atiku Abubakar, our party’s presidential candidate, the PDP? Where is National Chairman Iyorchia Ayu? With the presidential election just a few days away, how come the PDP’s DG, Campaign Council, has remained silent about the APC government’s atrocities?

Why have they allowed their voices to be muffled by a conspiracy’s silence?

Where are the political parties in opposition? What do Nigerians gain from the graveyard silence? It would appear that the political class has abandoned the right to good for Nigerians.

“When it comes to confronting Nigeria’s challenges, the center appears overwhelmed, stunned, halted, stalled, and perplexed.

“The various state actors can do better, in my opinion.

Nigerians should not be taken for granted by economic policymakers who implement regressive measures.

Instead, we should try to review our focus and our long-term horizon. Nigeria needs to get away from this dangerous cliff.”

“Governments are elected to ensure the protection of personal liberties, to ensure the pursuit of happiness, and to create an environment where all citizens can carry out their economic livelihoods without being subjected to oppression or being savaged by the lawlessness of incendiary actors,”
