PDP To APC, Presidency: ‘Stop Making Mockery Of Governance’

Olisa-MetuhThe Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has tasked the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Presidency to stop making mockery of governance with premature celebration of imaginary achievements except their intention is to set up President Muhammadu Buhari for national and international ridicule.

The opposition party said it was embarrassing that the APC and aides of President Buhari decided to invade the minds of Nigerians with propaganda and tissues of lies instead of assisting the President, who was inaugurated three weeks ago to settle down, form a government and deliver his campaign promises to Nigerians.

According to a statement issued on Thursday by its National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, the PDP said “the nation and democrats world over were thoroughly embarrassed by the frivolous list of so-called achievements which has further exposed APC’s lack of capacity and direction as well as the inability to draw a line between propaganda by an opposition party and disseminating of credible information as a party in government”.

It added: “How can a serious government start shouting achievements and make bogus claims on the fight against terrorism when the effort is apparently losing steam as insurgents who had already been pushed to the verge of surrender in the Sambisa forest by the Goodluck Jonathan administration are now surging back into the country under the APC-led government?

“How can a serious government shout achievement based on pledges by foreign interests, a dangerous slide towards neo-colonialism, instead of settling down to galvanize bequeathed resources and potentials that have already placed our great country as one of the fastest emerging economic and political powers in the world?

“How can a serious government shout achievement and attempt to explain away the untidy fact that after three weeks, it has not been able to organize itself even to take basics steps of conventional appointments such as Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Chief of Staff to the President and advisers in key sectors of the economy?

“We ask, is the APC celebrating that fact that due to its naivety and delays, key sectors of our nation’s economy are dangerously drifting with a perilous crippling of foreign and domestic investments including activities in the money and capital market sectors?

“Our promise has been to engage in credible opposition and provide alternatives and options to the policies and programmes of the APC-led Federal Government in the general interest of the nation, but alas, in less than one month, even with the stability bequeathed by the Jonathan administration, we have only witnessed inexcusable confusion and administrative naivety in the handling of important issues as seen in their poor outing at the inauguration of the National Assembly, unnecessary delays in the setting up of structure for the executive arm and the worrisome inability to urgently provide a national economic direction, among others.

“This is a party and government that promised Nigerians that they will hit the ground running once elected into office but what we have seen so far is a government and party that hit the ground and remained on the same spot for sheer inexperience and unpreparedness for governance.

“We, therefore, urge the APC to stop embarrassing the nation with premature and unsubstantiated celebration of imaginary achievements especially if they ever want to be credible and responsible people, as sincerity and not propaganda remains the hallmark of trustworthy administration.

“The APC should not by any means attempt to use its flimsy list to divert attention from its numerous campaign promises for which the people are holding them accountable.

“We wish to inform the APC that the Nigerians will not take anything short of the commencement of the payment of monthly N5, 000 each to 25 million poor citizens beginning from the end of this month; ending of insurgency by the end of July as promised by President Buhari in his April 2, 2015 CNN interview; payment of monthly allowance to discharged but unemployed Youth Corps members, free meals to school children and bringing the naira to the same value with the dollar; among other bogus promises upon which they gained access to power”.

“Finally, we advise the Presidential spokespersons to allow Nigerians to judge the President as events and time will prove exactly the taste of the old wine”, the PDP said.



  1. Heh, it’s just “Blacks being Black”.
    “International Ridicule” is near impossible for black nations administrated by black cannibal retards who regularly mass-rape other people. You cannot ridicule the sub-human or in the case of blacks, the fake-humans.

    Psychopathic blacks acting on their genetically-psychopathic anti-human impulses in a nation of sub-moron psychopathic blacks is more of a “critical mental health crisis” than a basic “administrative failure”.

    Lawless, worthless, destructive, barbarically retarded, completely uneducatable black citizens and black “leaders” are not possible to be subject to “International Ridicule” any more than a rabbit devouring its own feces.

  2. Olisa Metuh,keep on moaning. Which democratic world complained of being embarrassed about the APC claims to you PDP. Your party has ruled this nation for 16 years without direction, except monumental corruption and abysmal waste of resources. So,back off,go learn how to play opposition.

  3. It is obvious that President Buhari was prepared to make 2015 bloody but since he won the election he is now confused. Please PMB wake up from your dogmatic slumber and face reality, which is in this case Nigeria.
