APC to PDP: Asking Tinubu to throw in the towel over hardship is self-indictment


The All Progressives Congress (APC) says governors of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) indicted themselves when they asked President Bola Tinubu to throw in the towel over economic hardship in the country.

The governors of the opposition party said the suffering in the land has become unbearable.

In a statement on Sunday, Felix Morka, national spokesperson of the APC, said PDP governors have become "doomsday vocalists" instead of living up to their responsibilities.

Morka said it is "cringeworthy" that the governors who have stifled the LGAs in their states are speaking about the "buck" on the president's table.

"Rather than live up to their responsibilities as chief executive officers of Nigeria's federating units, the PDP governors have turned themselves into a band of doomsday vocalists, raising their voices to deafening decibels intended to drown the groans of their citizens battered by their critical inertia, ineptitude and dismal performance as governors of their states," he said.

"As the federal buck 'ultimately stops' at the President's table so the state buck 'ultimately stops' at the governors' table.

"The PDP governors' call to the President to throw in the towel is nothing short of self- indictment

"It is cringeworthy that the same governors that have never justified the massive federal allocations to their states, that have perennially stifled and dispossessed local government administrations of federally allocated funds are talking about 'buck'. How can a governor of a state in utter shambles like Delta participate, barefaced, in a talk about 'buck'?

"Has the PDP governor of Delta state even attempted to justify the over 483.57 billion naira federal allocation to the state in 2023? Which part or sector of Delta state bears witness to the use of that huge allocation?

"Delta state retirees have remained desperately pulverized by PDP's uninterrupted reckless rule since the advent of this Republic in 1999."

Morka said Tinubu is taking responsibility and providing "solid leadership in this historic season of deep and enduring economic transformation in our country".
