The Lagos state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of destroying the nation’s economy with its 16 years of criminal leadership.
In a statement yesterday, September 17, by the party’s spokesman in the state, Joe Igbokwe, the APC advised the PDP to stop distracting President Muhammadu Buhari with their outlandish statements.
The ruling party said Buhari cannot be deterred from rescuing Nigeria from the rot and decay left behind by the PDP.
The APC advised the opposition to bury its head in shame, saying it was wasting its energy trying to pit Nigerians against the president.
The party added that Nigerians had not forgotten how the rival party looted Nigeria’s wealth for 16 years.
“For a PDP that totally destroyed the Nigerian economy and stole 16 years of the nation’s providential oil boom to now mount a daily credo of rootless criticism of a regime that is working so hard to recover the country from PDP’s wasteful hangover shows that it is insulting the intelligence of Nigerians, who roundly rejected it a few months ago.
“We observe that rather than keep quiet as Nigerians brace themselves for the shocking details of its nefarious acts of public stealing and corruption, the PDP has inundated the Nigerian space with spurious wolf crying as a way of staving off prosecution for its many corrupt acts,” the APC said.
The ruling party advised the opposition to bear the burden of its corrupt acts, adding that the shocking revelations of looting, corruption and the plundering of the nation’s treasury by officials of the PDP were enough to lead to the ban of the party.
The huge rivalry that exists between the PDP and the APC keeps getting worse. Both parties never cease to trade words and throw accusations.
The PDP had some days back, urged the President Buhari led All Progressive Congress government to pay urgent attention to the management of the nation’s economy.
Shortly after, the Ondo state chapter of the APC blamed the PDP for the president’s delay in appointing ministers.
