The All Progressives Congress, Lagos State chapter, yesterday gave the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) knocks for the “irrational heckling and outlandish statements” on the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Accusing the PDP of plotting to pit the millions of Nigerians, who voted for “change” against the Federal Government by distracting the Buhari administration, the APC advised the opposition party to bury its head in shame.
The governing party berated the PDP for dissipating energies on a wasteful venture as Nigerians have not forgotten how the party plundered the wealth of the 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 hangover shows that it is insulting the intelligence of Nigerians, who roundly rejected it a few months ago”, the party said in a statement by Lagos State spokesman Joe Igbokwe.
The Lagos APC said 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 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.
“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.
“When it is not crying wolf, the PDP is making specious and ridiculous allegations of non-performance on an administration that has in three eventful months cleared much of the debris of rot and decay it studiously built to wreck Nigeria in 16 years of criminal leadership.
“It said that what survived the regrettable PDP years are the litany of self-scripted spurious testimonials of superlative performance of the economy in the face of debilitating poverty, dead and crumbled infrastructure, relentless stealing of public funds and stupendous promotion of corrupt acts in every sector of governance”.
