The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, on Monday lamented that the incessant collapse of the national electricity grid is a metaphor for the collapsing state of the country.
Mr Abubakar made the lamentation on Monday through his Facebook page while reacting to the latest grid collapse which threw many parts of the country in darkness.
According to him, the incident is a pointer to the ongoing collapse in the country’s security, economy, education, well-being and value of human lives.
He said: “The darkness that has enveloped the nation in the last couple of days with the collapse of the national grid is a metaphor for the collapsing state of our nation: collapsing unity, collapsing security, collapsing economy, collapsing education, collapsing well-being and collapsing value of human life and dignity.
“My expectation is that Nigerians will collapse the ruling APC in kind via the ballot and enthrone a viable pathway for the New Nigeria of our dreams that will be united and stable, prosperous and awash with opportunities; secured and inclusive. As One, we can get it done.”
