The All Progressives Congress (APC) has asked the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to remain focused in its bold bid to restore economic growth in the country and not to be distracted by alleged orchestrated attacks by the Peoples Democratic Party.
While reacting to the scathing criticism made by PDP against APC-led Federal Government on the worsening economic situation, the ruling party said that instead of joining issues on the matter, the government should focus on legitimate and innovative means to achieve economic turn-around in the quickest possible time.
In a statement issued by its National Secretary, Mai Mala Buni, APC said that despite PDP’s blackmail, the truth remains that the hardship being faced by Nigerians is a direct consequence of the mismanagement of the economy and unprecedented looting of the country’s commonwealth under PDP.
“In spite of the PDP’s orchestrated and feeble attempts to blackmail the current administration and twist facts, the reality remains that the prevailing socio-economic hardship being faced by Nigerians is a direct consequence of the mismanagement of the economy and unprecedented looting of the country’s commonwealth perpetrated under its watch.
“The PDP’s attempt to turn truth on its head is fraudulent, insensitive and an insult to Nigerians. For the umpteenth time, the PDP must own up to its transgressions and apologize to Nigerians.
“Going forward, the urgent task before the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC administration is to restore the country’s battered economy back to health and all legitimate and innovative means are being employed to achieve this in the quickest possible time.”
