PDP Lacks Moral Right To Challenge Buhari On Good Governance - APC
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has warned the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to stop challenging it to a debate on good governance, saying the former ruling party continues to suffer from integrity deficit.
The party made this known in a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, in Abuja, describing the challenge by the PDP as laughable and incredible.
Bounce News had reported that PDP challenged Buhari to a debate on good governance ahead of the 2019 general elections.
The APC said that as a party synonymous with impunity, institutionalised corruption, non-remittance of 20 billion dollars oil revenue, among others, the PDP was not in a position to debate on good governance.
“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”.
APC said 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 synonymous with impunity; institutionalised corruption; diversion of counter-insurgency votes to political cronies and funding of political activities; illegal purchase of bullet-proof SUVs, limousines and private jet shindigs for ministers at public expense; non-remittance of $20 billion oil revenue; among other atrocities too numerous to mention, cannot be in a position to debate on good governance
“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”, APC said.
