The All Progressives Congress (APC), Enugu chapter, has stressed the need for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to join President Muhammadu Buhari in laying solid foundation for a prosperous Nigeria. The state’s chapter of the party, in a statement by its Publicity Secretary Mrs Kate Ofor, decried “plot by PDP to bring back unbridled corruption into Nigeria.
“The plot was exemplified by PDP’s unwarranted propaganda against President Muhammadu Buhari.” The statement explained that the scheme by PDP to bring back uncontrolled corruption made the party to keep heaping blame on President Buhari as the cause of the recession in the country.
The APC state chapter said “PDP smartly exonerated its leadership of lack of planning and squandering the resources of the nation in the last 16 years.” According to it, the lack of planning and squandering of resources by the immediate past administration actually caused the present economic recession.
“PDP has the guts to call on President Buhari to resign for failing to fix the economy they battered during their 16 years leadership.” The party recalled that it was during PDP government that billions of naira was stolen, thereby plunging the nation into the current economic challenge. “In less than 20 months, PDP thought Nigerians are morons who forget so easily.’’
The APC, however, assured Nigerians that Buhari was on course in its avowed determination to fight corruption and lay solid foundation for economic prosperity of the country. It stated that PDP was consciously or unconsciously reminding Nigerians of the economic fraud which pushed millions of Nigerians into poverty and at the same time produced the richest African. The governing party also called on political parties, civil society organisations and patriots to rally round the president to collectively search for solutions to the economic recession.
