IPOB: Stop Blaming Opposition for your Ineptitude, PDP Tells APC


By Onyebuchi Ezigbo in Abuja

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has asked the All Progressives Congress (APC) to stop apportioning blame over its administration’s poor handling of the agitations of Independent People of Biafra (IPOB).

The party said that it is constrained once again to respond to the tirade by the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, who as usual, blamed a superficial opposition for the continuous gaffe of the federal government under the leadership of his party, APC.

“We had advised not a few times, that the APC should look inward and seek solutions to its self-induced challenges in government caused by its unpreparedness for governance; but since the party seem set for self destruction, we shall not relent in helping to expose their ineptitude to the Nigerian populace,” PDP said.

In a statement issued on Tuesday by its spokesman, Dayo Adeyeye, PDP said that it is disheartening that rather than accept blame for its ineptitude, the APC government has continued to blame “enemies” real or imaginary for its woes.

“We noticed that the minister who is much known for his unbridled capacity for constant polarisation of the polity rather than ardency in the proper dissemination of government policies and information to the populace, tried once again on Sunday, to shift blame of the poor handling of the agitations of IPOB by the current government to an opposition that exists only in his imagination,” it said.
