Secondus recently revealed that PDP senators must keep protesting against such a move by FG because it will attract nasty repercussions.
According to him, PDP is worried about the continuous borrowing by the executive arm of Government since Nigerians will be the ones to pay for it in the nearest future.
He added that it will be difficult to breathe both politically and economically if the borrowing continues.
His words, “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.”
“I think that for today’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 the minds of Nigerians.”
On Edo State, “Edo election is ongoing, the processes have started yesterday was the three man’s delegate election. On the 19th is the congress proper.”
