Economic hardship: PDP should apologise to Nigerians, APC insists

The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) should come clean and tender an unreserved apology to Nigerians for their disastrous 16-year rule that has left the people pauperised and traumatised.

The Media Aide to the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Segun Dipe, made the call in a statement in Abuja on Monday.

“Due to PDP’s perfidy, our country’s resources were stolen and opportunities frittered away. But instead of being contrite, the PDP is arrogantly putting itself up as the alternative to a government that is barely one year in office and has inherited a totally ruined economy. This is brazenly irresponsible, ” the statement said.

It said it was just as well that the PDP has not even been able to reposition itself to provide robust opposition to the APC-led Federal Government, adding that PDP’s lack of patriotism, recklessness and outright wickedness towards the ordinary Nigerians have finally caught up ‎with the disgraced former ruling party.

“What the nation can now testify to is that the only thing that united the PDP was their singular commitment to milking the resources of this nation dry, as evident in all the corruption cases that have now been exposed.

“The PDP cannot therefore expect to move on without first taking responsibility for their shameful conduct and ignominious behaviour. The starting point in their long journey to rehabilitation is to apologise to Nigerians

“It is immoral, insensitive, unconscionable and unacceptable for the PDP to hire spin doctors to reel out some figures of GDP growth in their time that never impacted positively on the Nigerian people. Our advice to the party chieftains is that the time is now for them to look Nigerians in the eye and say, ‘we are sorry’,” the statement said.
