The All Progressives Congress, APC, has described the PDP’s “rambling” statement on the nation’s economy as part of the opposition’s ploy to distract the Buhari Administration from its task of putting the nation on a sound footing.
The spokesperson of the PDP, Olisa Metuh, had earlier on Monday issued a statement calling on President Buhari to pay urgent attention to the management of the nation’s economy.
The party said its worry stemmed from the fact that the economy has remained on rapid fall since the last four months apparently due to the absence of clear-cut fiscal policy direction and an economic team to deal with the domestic and global challenges associated with a developing economy.
However, spokesperson of the governing APC, Lai Mohammed issued a prompt response to Mr. Metuh Monday evening in a statement issued in Lagos.
Mr. Mohammed said the PDP’s statement was a “litany of delusional self-praise, rather than a genuine concern about the nation’s wellbeing”.
”The question the PDP should ask itself is that if it had laid a solid foundation for the economy in its 16 years in charge, could such a foundation have given way in just three months of a new administration?
”If the PDP had been as fantastic as its statement had portrayed, it would still be the ruling, rather than the opposition party that it is now.
”It is therefore important for the PDP to concentrate its attention on remaking its tattered image rather than continuing to act as a desperate attention-seeking opposition,” he said
