Nigeria: S-West PDP Condemns Falana's Position On FG's U.S.$7 Billion Loan

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the South West has urged the National Assembly to ignore Lagos lawyer, Mr. Femi Falana, SAN's criticism on the Federal Government proposed U.S. $7 billion loan.

The party, which said it was time for Falana to be told to stop his shameless hypocrisy, added that; "a man who kept silent when Local Council workers, including primary health workers were on strike for seven weeks and his kinsmen in Ekiti State were dying of cholera while children were unable to get immunisation does not have moral rights to speak in the gathering of sane minds."

In a release issued by its Zonal Publicity Secretary, Hon. Kayode Babade, the PDP said; "if in the thinking of Falana, it was right for the Kayode Fayemi-led ACN government in Ekiti, his (Falana) home state to have borrowed N25 billion lavished the on irrelevant projects like laying of asphalt on already asphalted roads, installation of generator powered street lights, planting of flowers among others, he should just keep his mouth permanently shut on the Federal Government proposed $7 billion loan."
