The Face Of A Liar, PDP Taunts FG Over New Unemployment Figures

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has accused the Federal Government of lying to Nigerians about massive employment and job creation it has achieved during the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The opposition party was reacting to the latest unemployment figures released by the Nigeria Bureau of Statistics (NBC), which put the nations unemployment rate at 33.3 percent in the fourth quarter of 2020, up from 27.1 percent in the second quarter of the same year.

The party, in a statement on Tuesday by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said: “The rise in unemployment from the alarming 27.1 per cent in Q2, 2020 to 33.3 per cent in Q4 2020, despite the bogus claims of the APC administration, confirms that indeed, there is no hope in sight under the Buhari Presidency and the APC.

“It is clear that the direct cause of the escalating unemployment is the incompetence, as well as the widespread corruption and treasury looting in the Buhari administration, where APC leaders are reported to have looted over N15 trillion, which should have been used to create wealth, develop our country and provide jobs for our citizens.”
