National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Uche Secondus, has condemned the loans by the federal government saying such could make the country cease to breath.
Secondus stated this while speaking with journalists in Abuja after a three hours reconciliatory meeting with PDP Senate Caucus.
He urged the Senators on the platform of the party to kick against such a move by the Federal Government to embark on additional borrowing.
Secondus said, “We are also worried about the continuous borrowing by the executive arm of Government if it continues like this, Nigerians would be feeling the pains on their neck and It will get to a point if we continue to borrow the way the executive arm is carrying on, it will be difficult to breath both politically and economically. So, this must come to an end, there must be an end to borrowing. Those are the issues we have asked our senators to raise in the Senate.”
When asked whether the Senators should stage a walk out in case of any move to borrow more money, the PDP National Chairman said, “they know what to do.”
Speaking on the meeting, Secondus said, “I think that for today’s (yesterday’s) meeting at the Senate in the National Assembly, we came to interact with our senators, the PDP caucus. We held a very useful discussion on behalf of the leadership of the party.
We tabled before the Senate caucus of PDP the issue of electoral reforms which is also on our minds and on the minds of Nigerians.”
On the forthcoming Edo elections, Secondus said, “Edo election is ongoing, the processes have started yesterday was the three man’s delegate election. On the 19th is the congress proper.”
The meeting had in attendance members of the PDP National Working Committee, NWC and Senators led by the Senate Minority Leader, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe (PDP, Abia South l).
The Ninth Assembly had so far approved $22.7 billion, $5.53 billion and N850 billion on different occasions for the Buhari regime to fund the 2020 budget.
