Your Mumbo Jumbo Won’t Stop Buhari From Restoring Nigeria’s Lost Glory, APC Replies Metuh, PDP

Published

on

LAI MOHAMMEDThe All Progressives Congress has said the Peoples Democratic Party as a party cannot provide a virile opposition to the APC-led Federal Government if its spokesman continues to issue “convoluted and fustian statements” in order to be in the news.
“Today’s (Sunday) 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 in Lagos on Sunday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed.
“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”.
The governing party said in light of the above, it 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 organise a crash course for Olisa Metuh (National Publicity Secretary, PDP) so that he can more effectively perform his role as the spokesman of the main opposition party.
“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”, APC said.
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”.
APC added, “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.
“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”.

    Fashola: If We Keep Our Promises, APC Will Retain Power In 2023Babatunde Fashola

Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola has expressed optimism that Nigerians will still vote the All Progressives Congress (APC) back to power in 2023.

Fashola, however, added that the only thing that can make Nigerians not to vote for the APC is if the party fails to fulfill its campaign promises to them.

The Minister made this remark while speaking with journalists on Monday in Abuja.

He noted that even if the promises are not 100% fulfilled but the citizens see signs of commitment and progress, other parties should forget about displacing APC in 2023.

The former Lagos State Governor added that opposition parties are not doing better than the APC, hence should not expect Nigerians to vote for them come 2023.

He said: “Some governors have joined us, from where we think we could not get voters before. To retain power in 2023, certainly if we keep our promises, people will vote for us. It is that simple, that is politics,” the former Lagos governor said.

“If you do what you say you will do, even if you don’t do hundred percent and they see that you are making progress, they will even want you to finish what you started.”
