Nigerians have rejected your party, they won’t buy lies — APC campaign to PDP

0

 

The presidential campaign council of the All Progressives Congress (APC) says Nigerians will not “buy the lies” of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

 

The APC presidential campaign council said this on Saturday in a statement signed by Bayo Onanuga, its director of media and publicity.

 

Recently, Atiku Abubakar, the PDP presidential candidate, said he cannot understand why Nigeria should still be dealing with the issue of Boko Haram, especially with the deployment of the military.

 

In other recent public engagements, Atiku and some PDP stakeholders have criticised the APC-led government for its handling of the economy, security, and other sectors.

 

In the statement on Saturday, the APC campaign council said the opposition party lacks the “capacity for introspection” to understand the state of the country.

 

“Let us not forget that the PDP left our infrastructure decrepit, highways impassable after allotted money to contractors had been shared by party stalwarts,” the statement reads.

 

“Let us not forget that this party now posing as recovery agents had already grounded our country and made our economy comatose before Buhari took over on 29 May 2015.

 

 “Let us not forget that the two poorest states in our country, Sokoto and Bayelsa are states being governed by the PDP in the last 8 years.

 

“In the past seven and a half years, the Buhari government has been trying to clear the mess left by the PDP predecessors.

 

“Despite the challenges faced on the economic front, among which is dwindling revenue exacerbated by oil theft, the government has been able to showcase many game-changing projects.

 

“One of them, which temporarily opened on 15 December, is the Second Niger Bridge. The PDP promised the south-east states and Ifeanyi Okowa’s Delta state that it would build the bridge.

 

 “For 16 years, the party made one empty promise after another. Muhammadu Buhari in 2018 decided to take on the project. He awarded it all over again and in record time the 1.6 kilometres long bridge is ready.

 

“And it comes with other ancillary infrastructure including a 10.3 km highway, a bypass to Owerri and a toll station at Obosi.

 

“While we promise Nigerians that our presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, will build on Buhari’s legacy and improve the economy and the security situation, we can only say to the PDP: ‘Nigerians have rejected you and our people will not buy your lies again!'”
