Joblessness and hunger has increased in the country since the All Progressives Congress took over in 2015, the Peoples Democratic Party has alleged.

Caretaker Chairman of the party Ahmed Makarfi said this on Saturday in Abuja at the party’s National Convention.

According to him, hunger is ravaging the land, adding that the price of foodstuffs is now beyond the reach of average Nigerians.

Makarfi also alleged that the rate of crime, especially terrorism, ‘is creeping back with greater ferocity’.

“It is therefore with a high sense of responsibility that I seize this opportunity to draw the attention of the government, for, it seems unaware, to the fact that Nigerians are hungry as poverty is ravaging the land,” the PDP chair noted.

“The relative ease with which foodstuff and other essentials were available and affordable to the average Nigerian under PDP governments is now history.

“Insecurity in the North East which was thought to be receding is creeping back with greater ferocity, particularly against soft targets.

“Kidnap for ransom has taken a life of its own, so are the incessant farmers/herdsmen clashes and criminalities so camouflaged.”

Furthermore, Makarfi noted that “Joblessness has never been at such high level in the history of this country, while the education sector is all but comatose.

“It is common knowledge that no society progresses if it doesn’t secure the future of its future leaders. It is therefore necessary that a shot in the arm is applied on the education sector to ensure that we do not toy with the destiny of our children.”
