APC: PDP ‘too blind’ to notice Buhari’s hard work

The All Progressives Congress (APC) says the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is “too blind with hatred” to notice President Muhammadu Buhari’s hard work with solving the country’s numerous problems.

It also said PDP could not provide any worthwhile opposition to the APC-led federal government if its spokesman continues to issue “convoluted and fustian statements” just so that he can be in the news.

”Today’s statement is the most tortuous yet by the PDP and, honestly, sounds more like a compendium of beer-parlour gossips and side talks than a serious criticism of a sitting government,” the APC said in a statement issued in Lagos on Sunday by Lai Mohammed, its  spokesman.

”To be in opposition does not mean you have to constitute yourself to a nuisance by rushing to the press with all sorts of hot-air statements. It is the quality, rather than the frequency, of your interventions that makes you relevant as an opposition in a democracy.”

It said that in the light of the above, the APC would not dignify the latest in a series of confused statements by the PDP with any response.

”We can only say that we have been justified, and indeed prescient, in our earlier offer to organize a crash course for Olisa Metuh so that he can more effectively perform his role as the spokesman of the main opposition party,” the APC said.

”Those who thought we were joking with that offer can now see that indeed, Mr. Metuh is seriously in need of some form of coaching on his new role.”

The party said for the record, no government in Nigeria’s recent history had been as focused and systematic as the one headed by President Muhammadu Buhari in restoring good governance, especially coming after the worst stretch of governance, lasting all of 16 years, by the immoral and reckless PDP.

“It is worth noting that even the leader of the world’s foremost democracy, President Barack Obama, said that much during the recent visit to the US of President Buhari, when he described him (President Buhari) as a man of integrity with a clear agenda,” it said.

“President Buhari is working hard every day in the priority areas of tackling security and corruption, rebooting the economy to provide jobs for our teeming youths and generally to restore good governance. We are sorry for those who are too blind with hatred to see this.

“We know that the PDP is terrified by the expose of how the Federal Government it led has looted the treasury and created an environment for impunity to thrive, as well as the fate that will befall those who were part of the show of shame and disgust.

”But we assure Nigerians that this government will not interfere with the work of the security and anti-corruption agencies, and also that under the Buhari Administration, only the guilty needs to be afraid.

”In the meantime, no amount of mumbo jumbo from the PDP will stop the Buhari Administration from its tough but inevitable task of restoring Nigeria’s lost glory.”
