The Enugu-born senator listed the reduction in value of the
Naira as well as lack of clear-cut economic blue print as
major causes of hardship on the populace by the All
Progressives Congress (APC) led federal government.
He said: “Traders who depend on forex are now trapped. In
the next six months Onitsha and Alaba markets will shut
down. If government does not do anything. I’m not a
prophet of doom, but I believe if nothing urgent is done to
reverse the ugly development, we will have revolution in
our hands.
“Both our nationals and foreigners are worried; we need to
inform APC that Nigerians are dying, unless APC changes
style, Nigerians will in 2019 be begging PDP to come back.”
Ekweremadu stated that the PDP, supports the fight against
corruption, but warned that it must not be selective and
should follow due process rather than become a celebrated
media trial.
According to him, the PDP is currently facing trying
moments but it will come out stronger.
