The running mate of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr Peter Obi, has accused the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) of lying to Nigerians about the nation's economy.

He says President Muhammadu Buhari has destroyed the economy while the members of this party lie to Nigerians.  

"Buhari has destroyed the economy, so APC resorts to lies & insults.

"The false information from El Rufia is part of APC plan to use distraction and disunity to win the Presidency.

"From all indicators, our economy is failing.

"This is why the APC is talking about everything, but the economy.

"Our people are hungry - they don’t need more failed promises and rhetoric," he wrote on Twitter. 

The former Governor of Anambra State, whom Atiku Abubakar described as an excellent manager of lean resources, said that the focus of the Atiku team would be "getting Nigeria working again".

"We have a plan and the experience to make the life of Nigerians better. 

"Join us on this journey.

"Speak to friend and neighbours. #LetsGetNigeriaWorkingAgain," he added.
