This Is Time For Action, DPC Tasks Buhari

Chris Steven, Abuja

‎The Democratic Peoples Congress (DPC) has challenged President Muhammadu Buhari to take governance serious after one year of inaction in office.

The party told the President that it is time to fulfill campaign promises and implement programmes that will alleviate the sufferings of the masses who voted him to power. 

The opposition party in a statement issued in Abuja by its National Chairman, Revd. Olusegun Peters to x-ray President Buhari’s one year in office lamented that Nigerians are worried at the slow motion style of the President which it noted has paralyzed socio-economic and political activities in the country.

‎DPC said his indecision and inaction in tackling crucial national issues are a giant step backward in the nation’s collective quest at building a strong, virile, prosperous democratic nation.

‎”As President Muhammadu Buhari marks his one year in office on 29th May 2016, Nigerians are worried of his slow motion style of governance that has paralyzed socio-economic and political activities in the country.

His indecision and inaction in tackling crucial national issues are a giant step backward in our collective quest at building a strong, virile, prosperous democratic nation.

It is time for action. It is to take governance serious. It is time to fulfill campaign promises and implement programmes that will alleviate the sufferings of the masses who voted him to power.

It is time to stop the blame-game and provide solution to the myriad of problems facing the nation.

Leadership is not a tea party, it is a deep and heavy responsibility that will raise the people’s standards of living in tandem with section 14(2)b of the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 as amended,  which states that the security and welfare of the people shall be the primary purpose of government” it said .

DPC also  urged President Buhari’s government to set aside white elephant projects for now, and take action on agriculture, power, housing and transportation that affect the wellbeing of the masses.

It stressed that ‎government should be compassionate and sensitive to the plights of its people and provide dividends of democracy to address them.

DPC however, commended the federal government’s efforts on security noting that the government is winning the war against Boko-Haram insurgency.

” We salute our gallant soldiers and urge them to flush out the remaining insurgents in Sambisa forest.

Accordingly, security agents should also take similar action on the rampaging Fulani herdsmen who have killed thousands of innocent Nigerians across the country. It is time to end this man’s inhumanity against man.” It added
