The All Progressives Congress, APC, has described the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, as having failed the nation during the period it ruled the country.
The APC, in a statement titled, ‘PDP Era of Voodoo Economics, Abandoned Projects, Institutionalised Corruption Long Forgotten,’ by its Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, and made available to Newsdiaryonline on Wednesday, was reacting to the PDP, alleged that President Muhammadu Buhari had deceived Nigerians.
According to APC “President Muhammadu Buhari has listed nine people-focused priority areas that his administration will focus on in its remaining time in office.
“PDP chooses to dwell on its ignominious past and practices where voodoo economics, abandoned projects, institutionalised corruption among other frauds was the order of the day.”
The PDP had alleged that Buhari had deceived Nigerians with empty promises and attempts by his handlers to cover the failures of his regime.
The PDP in a statement signed by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, in Abuja on Wednesday, said it was tragic that Buhari could no longer face Nigerians due to his unfulfilled promises and had resorted to a face-saving measure by presenting yet a fresh list of “vacuous agenda to foreign envoys who are already aware of the failures of his government.”
The statement read in part, “The world need not be reminded that Mr President and his party, the All Progressives Congress, packaged a litany of false promises with which they swayed Nigerians in 2015, only to renege on assumption of office.”
The party spokesperson said on assumption of office, Buhari reduced his long list of such promises to three cardinal undertakings namely: ending insurgency and insecurity, fighting corruption nd improving on the economy.
It said it was no longer news that Buhari had failed in all these three undertakings to Nigerians.
