APC lawmakers playing ostrich over Niger roads – PDP

By Priscilla Campbell,

The Niger State chapter of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) has accused some federal lawmakers of the All Progressives Party (APC) of “playing Ostrich” over the poor condition of roads in the state.
Apparently, angered by comments allegedly made by them, the PDP said that it was sad that they had to wait, until the youths had to resort to blocking the roads before reacting to the situation.

In a statement by the state Chairman, Tanko Beji, the PDP lambasted the lawmakers.
It stated: "The PDP finds the lawmakers’ statements rather too little, too late; that the federal lawmakers had to wait till the youth took to the road blockades."

The opposition party described the action of some of the Senators and House of Representatives members as an act of abandoning their function of representing the people.
"As if to add salt to injuries, the lawmakers neither admonished, pressurized President Muhammed Buhari nor Governor Abubakar Sani Bello who has become synonymous with No project but penchant for flying jets and watching Chelsea FC in London."

The PDP stated that his party could not situate the comments coming from the federal lawmakers, arguing, "We see it as playing the ostrich which hides its head in a shallow sand and leaving its whole body outside.

"It is very clear to the PDP and Nigerlites that the APC, Governor Bello and their party lawmakers have nothing to offer other than a sing along the cacophony of useless noise".
