Bad economy: We appreciate APC’s acceptance – PDP

By Ben Agande
Abuja – The Peoples Democratic Party Tuesday said the admission by the All Progressive Congress that it accepts responsibility for the myriads of problems in the country has vindicated the PDP position that the APC was clueless and has no solution to the country’s problems.

In a statement in Abuja Tuesday, the Spokesman of the Party, Prince Dayo Adeyeye said the APC should stop blaming the PDP for the problems it created.

According to Adeyeye, “the open acceptance of responsibility regarding the economic misfortune
caused by the All Progressive Congress (APC) led Federal Government has once again, vindicated our earlier position that the Buhari Administration is clueless and lack focus in providing governance to

It will be recalled that Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State told state house correspondents in Abuja on Monday that the APC must take responsibility for the economic downturn turn in the country.

“We must take responsibility and we must never shift the responsibility to anybody. We are responsible for everything happening in Nigeria. The good, the bad, the ugly but we are promising Nigerians that we shall fix it” he had said.

According to Adeyeye, “this declaration coming after several months of bulk-passing and shifting responsibilities to previous Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Administration has shown that the APC Government has no solution to all the myriad of problems they created since assuming office in May 2015.

“The APC should also accept responsibility for deceiving Nigerians and the world at large that previous PDP Administration achieved nothing in the economy, infrastructure and policies in 16 years. We hope that the recent acceptance by the Party for the economic downturn in the country was not as a result of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) affirmation that Nigeria’s economy is the largest in Africa based on previous achievements of the past PDP led Administration. For the umpteenth time, let us re-iterate that the PDP’s achievements cannot be wished away.

“We therefore appreciate the APC’s acceptance and we urge them to accept all other responsibilities for all the wrongs they have plunged the Country into and equally apologize for their serial lies.

“Finally, we want to once again urge this Government to declare emergency on the economy and invite competent hands to manage and revive the ailing and comatose economy” he said.
