The people’s democratic party (PDP) has charged the APC and the Presidency to stop making mockery of governance with premature celebration of imaginary achievements.
The PDP said it was embarrassing that the APC and aides to President Buhari had decided to invade the minds of Nigerians with propaganda instead of assisting the President, who was inaugurated three weeks ago, to settle down, form a government and deliver on his campaign promises to the electorates.
The opposition party wondered why it was difficult for the APC-led Federal Government to appoint even a Secretary to the Government of the Federation and the Chief of Staff to the President.
The PDP National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, in a statement in Abuja, said the nation and democrats world over were thoroughly embarrassed by the alleged achievements claimed by the APC.
He said this action had further exposed the APC’s lack of capacity and direction as well as its inability to draw a line between propaganda by an opposition party and dissemination of credible information as a party in government.
Metuh said, “How can a serious government start shouting achievements and make bogus claims on the fight against terrorism when the effort is apparently losing steam as insurgents, who had already been pushed to the verge of surrender in the Sambisa forest by the (ex-President) Goodluck Jonathan administration are now surging back into the country under the APC-led government?
“How can a serious government shout achievement based on pledges by foreign interests, a dangerous slide towards neo-colonialism, instead of settling down to galvanise bequeathed resources and potential that have already placed our great country as one of the fastest emerging economic and political powers in the world?
“How can a serious government shout achievement and attempt to explain away the untidy fact that after three weeks, it has not been able to organise itself even to take basic steps of conventional appointments, such as Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Chief of Staff to the President and advisers in key sectors of the economy?”
He wondered what the APC was celebrating, alleging that due to its naivety and delays, key sectors of the nation’s economy were allegedly drifting dangerously with “a perilous crippling of foreign and domestic investments, including activities in the money and capital market sectors.”
Metuh said that the APC should not by any means attempt to use its flimsy list to divert attention from its numerous campaign promises for which the people will be holding the party accountable.
“Finally, we advise the Presidential spokespersons to allow Nigerians to judge the President as events and time will prove exactly the taste of the old wine,” Metuh added.
