A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress in Abia State, Mazi Emma Uche has berated critics of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government.
According to the politician, the Buhari government only needs encouragement for the efforts it has made so far and not some unhealthy criticism from Nigerians.
Uche added that the incumbent administration needs the support of citizens to overcome the myriads of challenges bedevilling the country.
While noting that criticism is one of the bedrock of democratic settings, Uche frowned at the attitude of some individuals, “who instead of proffering solutions to the fundamental problems facing the nation, would resort to destructive criticisms and tendencies that are unhealthy in deepening democracy in the country.”
Naija News reports that the Abia politician who had an encounter with newsmen on Monday, December 26, urged Nigerian leaders and citizens to use this festive period and as well as the coming year to pray for God’s intervention to the myriads of crisis impeding the development, unity, progress and peace of the country.
Uche reiterated his call for the citizens to continue to support the President as he had made appreciative gains in offering Nigeria’s democratic dividends.
Uche, who was also a former Chairmanship candidate of the APC in the last council election held in Arochukwu Local Government Area of Abia State, maintained in his conversation with journalists in Umuahia, the state capital that the current federal government has recorded overwhelming gains in the fight against insecurity, raising the bar in infrastructure, and as well ensured the stability of the nation’s economy.
Canvasing further for the present administration, Mazi Uche noted also that the All Progressives Congress-led administration in Nigeria has encouraged the development of Small and Medium Scale enterprises which have greatly fostered youth, men and women empowerment and also development.
The frontline politician further regretted the infrastructural deficit in Abia State and the alleged inability of the state government to address the developmental problems, regretting that these have continued to tell on the state’s huge and productive business investments.
Mazi Uche called on Governor Okezie Ikpeazu to map out and step up workable policies tilted at giving the state a facelift, insisting that Abia is backward in every facet of governance which he attributed to lack of vision and direction by those entrusted with the leadership of the State.
The APC stalwart further maintained that his party is poised to change the narratives in the governance of Abia State as it has a well-defined template upon which it delivers dividends of democracy to the people of Abia State once the party forms the next government in the State come 2023.
