PDP, again, accuses APC, Tinubu government of lack of capacity to address hardship in Nigeria

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has launched another scathing attack on the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the government led by President Bola Tinubu, accusing them of failing to address the hardship presently being experienced by Nigerians.

In a statement issued by the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Debo Ologunagba, Monday, the party commended its governors for speaking out against what it described as the failure of President Tinubu’s administration.

According to the PDP, President Tinubu and his ruling APC government must take responsibility for the economic hardship and insecurity plaguing the country. The party alleged that the APC lacks the capacity and competence to lead Nigeria effectively.

The statement criticized the APC for attempting to shift the blame onto state governors, arguing that President Tinubu, as the head of the government, should be held accountable for the nation’s security and economic policies. The PDP accused the Tinubu administration of mismanaging the economy, leading to widespread suffering among Nigerians.

Furthermore, the PDP denounced what it called the APC’s diversionary tactics to deflect attention from its failures. The party claimed that the APC leadership is involved in corruption and treasury looting, which exacerbate the hardships faced by Nigerians.

In contrast, the PDP praised its governors for providing quality leadership and implementing life-enhancing projects in their respective states. The party emphasized that only PDP-elected officials are committed to improving the lives of Nigerians and developing their communities.

The PDP concluded by urging Nigerians to hold the APC and President Tinubu accountable for their actions and pledged to expose alleged corruption within the APC ranks.

THE PDP STATEMENT IN FULL READS
“Our Party restates its position that the APC and the Tinubu administration are responsible for the current biting economic hardship and surging wave of insecurity across the country, as they are completely overwhelmed and lack the capacity and competence to lead a nation like Nigeria.
“By seeking to allocate President Tinubu’s statutory duties to state governors, the APC has unambiguously admitted that it foisted on Nigerians an incompetent president who cannot guarantee security and whose administration has devastated our national economy, resulting in extreme hunger, hopelessness, and desperation, as evident in the protests, agitation, and rising spate of suicides across the country.
“Every Nigerian is lamenting the terrible situation which President Tinubu’s ill-informed and ill-implemented policies have brought upon the nation.
“President Tinubu is directly in charge of security and national economic policies, including administration of petroleum resources as Minister of Petroleum Affairs; other national revenues; and cannot transfer his incompetence and failure to other tiers of government, which have no control over national security, fiscal, and monetary policies, which mismanagement by President Tinubu’s government has crippled our economy.
“Moreover, state governors have no control over the pervading corruption and continuing monumental treasury-looting under President Tinubu, who has failed to take concrete measures to curb the malaise.
“It is an assault on the sensibility of Nigerians that instead of charging the government it formed to live up to its billings, the APC is seeking a sordid and depraved approach to divert public attention from its failures.
“From its diversionary statement, it is clear that the APC is jittery and afraid that it has been exposed following revelations and reports in the public space that its leaders are involved in multiple scams and fraudulent deals through which they continue to syphon funds meant for the wellbeing of the people, resulting in the unbearable hardship being experienced by Nigerians today.
“The complicity of the APC leaders apparently informs why they have remained silent in the face of the incompetence, monumental treasury looting, and corruption in the Tinubu administration.
“Our Party counsels President Tinubu and the APC to face their self-inflicted woes and heed the patriotic call of the PDP governors, who are providing quality leadership with life-enhancing projects and programmes in their various states in line with the people-oriented manifesto and policy thrust of the PDP.
“It is evident today across Nigeria that it is only PDP governors and other PDP-elected public officials that are commissioning legacy and life-enriching projects and programmes with which they are repositioning their states and various constituencies into Oases of Development.
“Nigerians should therefore continue to hold the APC and President Tinubu solely responsible for the suffering that they face. The PDP will not hesitate to name APC leaders allegedly involved in the continuing treasury plundering as the APC must not be allowed to “grab, snatch, and run” with our national patrimony at the expense of millions of our citizens.”
