…You lied, PDP replies

2 weeks ago

The PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation has told Minister of Information that he lied and should apologise to Nigerians for claiming its  candidate copied the economic blueprint of  President Buhari as his policy document.

The PDP Campaign claimed the APC came into power without any policy document citing its poor records in the areas of economic management, jobs creation, education, security as reason for the sufferings of Nigerians.

It said trying to link  Atiku’s policy economic plans with the failed policies of the APC  was the comical height of  Mohammed’s aversion for the truth.

In a statement, yesterday, the opposition party said: “While the minister was making a barren attempt to catalogue perceived achievements of the current APC administration, he did the unbelievable by claiming that the policy documents and proposals espoused by His Excellency Atiku Abubakar, our presidential candidate, are the version of the economic blueprint of the APC. That is a tsunami of a lie! To begin with, it has been openly acknowledged that this current administration came into power without a single sheet of paper of what could be called a policy document…

“It is on record that the first economic recession that the country experienced in 2016, which happens to be our worst economic decline in thirty years, happened primarily because the APC administration applied what can be called a catch-up strategy to the early signals of the recession. That is why till this day, Nigerians are more agreeable to the fact that the tenure of the APC has been nothing but a sheer waste of time, all thanks to the catch-up economic strategy of the ruling party that has left the people more malnourished, sick and disillusioned…

“What Minister Lai Mohammed reeled out as achievements of the APC is a compilation of the reasons why Nigerians have roundly rejected the ruling party. It’s nothing but a testimonial of failures. Conversely, what His Excellency Atiku Abubakar presented to the organised private sector in Lagos State last week represents the hopes of a new beginning, which Nigerians eagerly anticipate.”
