The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the All Progressive Congress (APC) of bandying imaginary ‘looted’ figures in “disgusting desperation for public approval.”
This was disclosed in a statement by the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Olisa Metuh while reacting to the APC’s claim that the Goodluck Jonathan led administration embezzled about N11 trillion.
The statement reads..
“The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described as reckless, irresponsible and highly provocative, Sunday’s statement by the APC spokesman, Alhaji Lai Mohammed wherein the party bandied imaginary figures against the previous administration to suit a heinous purpose.”
“PDP National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, in a release on Sunday said the APC has again exhibited its emptiness and disgusting desperation for public approval.
The PDP said “in trying to escalate their stock-in-trade of lies, wild allegations and falsehood, the APC failed to understand that their baseless fabrications are capable of throwing an unsuspecting nation into chaos.”
“Stating that “the spate of fabrications by Lai Mohammed has become a sickening source of worry for well-meaning Nigerians including those in his party”, the PDP called on President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC as a party, to call their spokesman to order before he plunges the country into crisis with wild and unsubstantiated claims.”
“The PDP said instead of engaging in unnecessary playing to the gallery, the APC-led government should get serious with the fight against corruption by investigating and prosecuting corrupt persons, while moving on with the demands of governance, especially in fulfilling their numerous campaign promises for which they were voted into office at the centre.”
