Ruling party accuses opposition of distracting President
Accusing the PDP of plotting to pit the millions of Nigerians who voted for “Change” in the last general elections against the federal government by distracting the Buhari administration, APC urged the rival party to bury its head in shame.
According to the APC, the rival party was dissipating its energies on a wasteful venture as Nigerians have not forgotten how the PDP plundered the wealth of nation between 1999 and May 29.
“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 hang-over, shows that it is insulting the intelligence of Nigerians who roundly rejected it some months ago,” the party said in a statement by Lagos State spokesman, Joe Igbokwe.
The party said that the shocking revelations of looting, corruption, plundering and impunity of the nation’s treasury by officials of the PDP were enough to lead to the proscription of the party, wondering why the PDP should believe it would make a headway distracting the Buhari government from rescuing Nigeria.
The statement reads: “We advise the PDP to bear the burden of its corrupt acts as its pranks will not deter President Buhari from rescuing Nigeria from the pits dug by the PDP.
