“Celebration of the lie” – PDP takes aim at Buhari on 2021 achievements
the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) described the achievements of the Buhari administration in 2021 as “a litany of lies”.
At a press conference in Lagos on Thursday, Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information and Culture, said that despite the challenges of 2021, the Buhari administration had made “enormous” progress in the fight against insecurity and growth of the economy.
Mohammed underlined “major achievementsHe said the Buhari administration recorded in 2021.
But, reacting in a statement Thursday, the opposition party called the achievements “a celebration of lies by a failing administration.”
The PDP alleged that the APC-led administration mismanaged the Nigerian economy and failed in its primary duty to protect the lives and property of citizens.
âThe People’s Democratic Party (PDP) rejects the Congress of All Progressives The performance allegations of the government led by (APC) as presented today by the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, as a litany of lies and another celebration of the lie by a failing administration â, PDP spokesperson Debo Ologunagba said in a statement.
âThe performance claim by the APC government can only be a product of illusions of grandeur; a joke of the year, like the word on the streets where the real Nigerians are, is completely at odds with the fabricated lies and imaginary performance cues contained in the report.
“Isn’t it unforgivable that instead of facing its failures to secure our nation, the APC-led government, which still houses an avowed terrorist apologist, celebrates the massacres currently underway in our country by indulging in self-praise in the face of failure as terrorists continue to ravage our nation?
âEconomically, the PCA government had become so addicted to lying that it forgot that Nigerians are aware that the PDP government has handed over a $ 550 billion economy (the largest in Africa and Africa). 26th in the world) and a diversified economy at APC in 2015 Today our nation has become the poverty capital of the world due to the mismanagement, corruption and recklessness of the APC government.
âIn 2015 Nigeria’s external debt stood at $ 7.3 billion. Today, under the ignorant PCA government, in just over six years, external debt has reached over $ 38 billion, with no corresponding investment in the economy or infrastructure.
âToday, the poverty rate in Nigeria is 71% compared to 32% when the APC government took power in 2015. Between January and September 2021, more than $ 1.8 billion was spent on the service of debt, yet the APC government can shamelessly claim to have accomplished in 2021.
âIt stands to reason that only APC gangsters can claim to have gambled despite the life experiences of ordinary Nigerians. Fortunately, Nigerians now know them for who they are.
âMoreover, it is ludicrous that the APC government pretends to be fighting corruption when it has become a haven for compromised and corrupt politicians. Obviously, that is why he has no response to reports of how the CPA leaders and their cronies have stolen over 25 trillion naira from various government agencies. It also explains why the APC government did not prosecute its APC officials and leaders openly accused of corruption.
The opposition party said that the infrastructure projects listed by the APC-led government “only exist on paper as achievements and have even attempted to take projects as their own by the PDP administrations.” The PDP challenges the APC government to name a flagship project that it has conceptualized, started and completed over the past six years â.
The PDP said the APC “is oblivious to the pain and tears their nearly seven years of proven disappointment have inflicted on Nigerians,” adding that he will be removed from office in 2023.
