The All Progressives Congress (APC) has described as “incredible” comments made by the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ‘challenging President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to a debate on good governance.
In a statement issued yesterday by the acting National Publicity Secretary of the party, Yekini Nabena, the party said it is laughable for a PDP to talk about good governance when it has wreaked havoc on Nigerians for 16 years.
It said “We view this request by the PDP as another laughable example of the PDP’s selective amnesia on the 16 years of locust it wrecked on Nigeria during its defunct rule.
“Perhaps the PDP needs to be reminded of the reason why Nigerians voted it out unanimously in 2015 to give way to a progressive administration which is rebuilding the country in all facets from the foundation.”
“A party whose administration placed the economy on life support through its voodoo economics and fiscal recklessness cannot be in a position to debate on good governance.
“The PDP in its desperation to position itself as the 2019 general election approaches cannot hoodwink Nigerians on who they truly are”, he said.
