The Upper Legislative Chamber, on Monday, descended heavily on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) saying the party which lost power at the centre in 2015, destroyed the economy of the country, as well as the social fabric of the nation.

Responding to President Muhammadu Buhari’s recorded broadcast, following his return from a medical vacation in the United Kingdom (UK), Senate spokesman, Abdullahi Sabi, said the All Progressives Congress (APC) led Federal Government is trying to right the wrongs of the PDP.

In a telephone conversation with newsmen, Sabi said: “This government is on its way to bring Nigeria back to the path of sanity. It was cascading and tumbling down without control until APC came in at the nick of time.

“For instance, by June 30th, our reserve was $30.288 billion and by August 16th, it went up to $31.551 billion. In other words, the economy has started picking up in quantum.

“APC is just out to right the wrong things or destructions done to the country, to the economy and socio-fabric of this nation in years of PDP rule.”

Sabi hailed President Buhari’s speech and described it as apt, precise and highly cogent.

The speech according to the spokesperson of the upper legislative chamber, addressed inherent issues bordering on fundamentals, fabric and foundations of the nation pushed to front burner of discourse while the president was away.

Sabi said: “Remember, he dismissed the so-called quit notice as well as telling the secession-agitators that the unity of the country is not negotiable.

“As a statesman and diligent leader, he needs not to say much until he has made wide consultations and widely briefed on all contentious issues in great details.

“He needs not to rush to make elaborate speech, even though he is quite in the know of the happenings while on medical vacation”.

He added that the Buhari-led government has not in anyway lost focus regarding purposeful governance geared towards bringing the country back to the right track, despite the health challenge.
