Nigeria getting to point where even middle class may face hunger -Gov Okowa


Ifeanyi Okowa, governor of Delta, says Nigeria is getting to the point where even the middle class may be affected by food crisis.

Speaking on Monday during an interview on Channels Television, Okowa said Nigerians know that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will do better than the All Progressives Congress (APC) if the opposition party assumes power in 2023.


The Delta governor said Nigerians can see the difference between the governance provided by the PDP and the APC, adding that the PDP came into power “when things were really very difficult” in the country.


“In the first instance, we are not competing with them anymore. Looking through the years of PDP and looking through these past six years plus, the difference is clear,” he said.


 “I believe that Nigerians are able to see for themselves that the PDP came in at a time when things were really very difficult and we were able to build a foundation.


“We started building on that foundation that was laid by the Obasanjo administration and we went on.


“Apparently, it appears that everything is tumbling down. Everything is just going in the reverse in such a manner that is not good for our nation.


 “Look at the time the PDP was in power and when we were leaving — the naira to dollar level and what it is today. There are too many issues. We are getting to a stage now where we are not even sure of food even for the middle class not to talk of the very low class.


“Most of the things that we see today that has brought Nigeria on good strides were actually foundations laid by the PDP. And looking through the economic projections, you will find out that we have gotten it all wrong in this current administration.


“I believe that Nigerians know the truth and Nigerians do know that PDP will do better than APC. There is no competition. There is no comparison at this level because the truth is quite clear that we are actually not moving in the right direction under the APC governance.”
