BY SEGUN ADEBAYO, ABUJA – The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has chosen to dwell on its ignominious past and practices where voodoo economics, abandoned projects, institutionalised corruption among other frauds was the order of the day.

The APC noted that this is in spite of the fact that President Muhammadu Buhari has listed nine people-focused priority areas that his administration will focus on in its remaining time in office.

The ruling Party said that it will be a complete waste of time joining issues with the PDP which failed as a government and has become shockingly rudderless as a supposed opposition party.

These were contained in a statement by the Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Mr Yekini Nabena in which the party further said that; “one thing is clear, we are reminded why the PDP should never be allowed to direct the country’s affairs again.

“Under the President Buhari-led APC government, is Nigeria Africa’s largest economy? Yes. Are we beginning to eat what we grow? Yes. Have we achieved a sustainable petroleum pricing template?

“Yes. Is institutionalised corruption and impunity still the norm? No. Is money spent on ongoing infrastructure projects being accounted for? Yes. With our steady climb in the global ease of doing business index, is Nigeria a profitable investment destination? Yes.

“For us in the APC, we will join well-meaning Nigerians in supporting and ensuring the achievements of President Buhari’s priority areas which will see among others, improved access to quality education, affordable health care, enhanced productivity, a thriving and sustainable economy, enhanced social inclusion and poverty reduction, enlarged agricultural output, energy sufficiency in power and petroleum products, expanded transport and other infrastructural development, business growth, entrepreneurship and industrialisation, fight against corruption, improved governance, social cohesion and improved security for all,” Nabena said.

The APC said that Nigerians will rather look with pride as newly constructed and launched rail services pass through their towns and upgraded airports that dot many state capitals.

The ruling Party said that while there remains many more to do, the administration is definitely on the right trajectory of growth and development under the President Buhari government.
