The Peoples Democratic Party has come out to say that the insults aimed at ex-president, Goodluck Jonathan by the APC is best suited for the current president, Muhammadu Buhari.
GEJ had been blasted for his alleged refusal of external help in the rescue of Chibok girls.
The ruling party accused Goodluck of “habitual negligence” as per state issues when he was in power.
APC wrote this via its National Publicity Secretary, Lanre Issa-Onilu, “Nigerians already know the story of Jonathan’s habitual negligence to matters of state.
“The Chibok schoolgirls abduction and his “sleeping behind the wheel” is not a story to deny as it is already part of our national history. We may disagree on a number of issues in Nigeria, but there is a national consensus on the fact that PDP elevated corruption to a national culture.”
However, PDP has fired back by saying Buhari is actually the president we should link to incompetency.
Reacting via its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP had this to say, “The PDP says the APC’s unwarranted invective on former President Goodluck Jonathan was misdirected as it best suits President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC administration, which has gone down as the most incompetent and most corrupt in the history of our nation.
“The party says the distortions and groundless attack on President Jonathan is a desperate tactic by the APC and the Buhari Presidency to divert public attention from the recent shocking corruption and fraud revelations in which close relatives and confidants of Mr President are mentioned.
“Our party has equally been made aware of how the APC and the Buhari Presidency have been desperate to divert public attention from the administration’s obnoxious decision to further oppress Nigerians by reintroducing tollgates on our highway, increasing Value Added Tax (VAT), electricity bill and other tariffs as well as their despicable plot to sack government workers.
“The PDP charges the APC and the Buhari Presidency to perish the idea of thinking that this unnecessary distortion on the Jonathan administration would bury the demand for an inquest into the racket through which billions of naira meant for the wellbeing of Nigerians are allegedly being diverted to private purses.
“The PDP invites Nigerians to note how the APC had remained silent since revelations that its key leaders and the cabal at the Presidency are involved in the stealing of over N14 trillion meant for the wellbeing of Nigerians.”
