Worsening Economy: Nigeria Sliding Towards Revolution, Ekweremadu Warns Buhari. by PhockPhockMan: 12:57pm On Dec 13, 2015

The Deputy Senate President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, has warned that unless the downward slide of the Nigerian economy is halted, the country may witness a revolution by citizens.
Speaking at the opening of the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) South East Zonal Executive Council meeting, Mr. Ekweremadu expressed dismay at the handling of the Nigeria’s economy by the All Progressives Congress, APC-led federal government.
He listed the reduction in value of the Naira which exchanged for about N250 to a dollar at the parallel market as well as lack of clear-cut economic blue print as major causes of hardship on the populace.
“Traders who depend on forex are now trapped,” he said at the event in Enugu on Saturday. “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,” he said.
The Deputy Senate President said his party, the PDP, supports the fight against corruption, but it must not be selective and should follow due process and not media trial.
He said PDP is currently facing trying moments but it will come out stronger. He also frowned at the development in the Kogi governorship elections where he alleged that APC governor-elect contested without a deputy.
Yahaya Bello of the APC was declared winner of Kogi governorship election after he defeated incumbent governor Idris Wada of the PDP. Mr. Bello’s election was, however, marred in controversy after he was selected by his party to replace Abubakar Audu who died after he won the main election. Mr. Audu’s deputy, James Faleke, has rejected his nomination as deputy to Mr. Bello and instead asked to be declared governor.
Also at the PDP meeting on Saturday, the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Olisa Metuh, challenged the APC-led government to publish the names of those who have reportedly returned stolen funds. He said such people should be tried and jailed if convicted.
President Muhammadu Buhari recently said the government would publish the names of ex-public officials who served in the Goodluck Jonathan administration and were secretly returning stolen public funds to his administration.
Earlier while welcoming the delegates, the National Vice Chairman of the PDP in the South East, Austin Akobundu, said the South East remains one of the geo-political zones in the country where the party was dominant. He urged members to take up the challenge of helping to rebuild the party.

Foolish man. So, he expects Buhari to clear the mess they created for sixteen years in less than one year? Nonsense!

#DasukiGate alone is estimated to be more than $6bn. I am sure by the time we enter #DiezaniGate, #CustomsGate, #SurePGate, and the other Gates, we will be looking at how GEJ slept on while hundred of billion of dollars were stolen from the economy.

I have said it on many occasions that whatever we experience today, this year, and even till early next year, is a result of our wrong decisions of many years back. Not just of today. This is very easy for rational, objective and intelligent persons to understand while the irrational, bias and unintelligent ones will keep spewing trash as usual.

PhockPhockMan:

Keep living in the past.

When electricity stays 3 days without failure, it's Buhari body language.
You and I can remember vividly that during jonathan's era, our economy was one of the fastest growing in the world.

Yeah, fastest growing on paper. Fastest growing indeed! You can tell that to those six feet under.

Some ignorant M0r0ns will make it a song.

They need revolution before we get to the root of the looting.

It is not election period and a sitting Deputy Senate President is talking thrash.

Obasanjo saw this coming and that is the reason for having Excess Crude Oil account. Ekweremadu was there when his brother closed the account and spent all the money.

To the eediots everything is politics. Fayose has calmed down i guess after hearing where his election money came from

PDP. APC ish again.. Let's start from recovering our money back, so as to support the crashing economy.

This guyz have stolen from us enough!! They should all get probed and sent to jail as soon as possible undecided
I was just estimating the amount this guyz have stolen from Nigeria, and indeed it's gruesome. Starting from allison's $6billion scam, to Dasuki's $2billion which is far more than that,to Dokpesi's own.. If we are to estimate all this looted funds we've been hearing since all this days, it would amount to $10 billion dollars, and more than that.
Now here's is my analysis, at the current rate of exchange now $1=260 naira
Therfore $10 billion dollars will amount to 2.6 trillion naira.
Nigerians are currently about 170 million +, let's assume 30 million Nigerians are underage i.e less than 15;there are about 140 million left.
Distributing this 2.6 trillion naira among the 140 million Nigerians will leave each individual with at least 18,000 naira. This 18,000 means a lot to some people.
That's what this coded thieves are taking from Nigerians;meanwhile it has the capability to save souls...
I still wonder why some people can be so self centred, to the extent of stealing from the hard earned tax payers money.
May God reward them inversely according to the billions and millions they've stolen... AMEN

Every time this criminal opens his mouth to fart, I dislike Saraki even more. angry

This thief actively participated in wrecking this economy, a situation Buhari's trying so hard to fix, yet he's got the presence of heart to talk trash.

Na God go punish am this beautiful sunday.

Did he think about an impending revolution when he was busy making withdrawals in billions for a constitution amendment exercise they never carried out??

The scarce resources can not be used to enlighten you ignorant lots.
Those that destroyed Nigeria are the same people calling for revolution. The revolution they so much feared during their time in charge of the countries affairs.
Now their is no much national cake to share and they still don't want to share the attendant trouble hence they are calling for revolution.

We all are critically sick and tired of this administration.

We prefer a corrupt government that's reviving the economy than a totalitarian north Korean regime that's so dumb and lacks vision.
