Nigerians going through worst period of their lives since independence - Adeyeye
The Ahmed Makarfi faction of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has welcomed the decision of the Supreme Court which fixed May 25 for the case concerning the party’s leadership tussle.
Speaking on the development, Dayo Adeyeye, spokesman of the Makarfi’s faction of the party, commended the Justices of the Supreme Court given the fact that there are so many cases before them ahead of their vacation in July.
“We are happy that they have been able to give us a date on May 25 and they have asked all parties to submit their written addresses before then. So, I believe that by May 25 we can still take the matter from there.
“This is a price to be paid for what is going on for now within the party especially for us. The enemy has planted thorns among us within our party, who they are using to destroy this party.
“They can enjoy this pyrrhic victory for a while, but at the end of the day, that will not remove the suffering of Nigerians, that will not remove the fact that we are in a serious economic recession, that Nigerians are going through the worst period of their lives since independence, that will not remove the fact that people are tired of their tyrannical rule and their dictatorship.
