The PDP lacks the moral basis and credibility to comment or condemn the government on the economy after the mess it left behind, the National Secretary of the APC, Mai Mala Buni, said yesterday.
Instead, the PDP must apologize to Nigerians, Mai Mala Buni said.
Buni, who reacted to the PDP’s criticisms over the APC-led federal government’s handlings of the economy, assured Nigerians that the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration remained committed to resuscitating the economy in the quickest possible time and in the best interest of the people.
“The statement by the PDP on Wednesday is the latest in the party’s insensitive plot to deflect attention from the voodoo economics and reckless fiscal policies the country was subjected to during its 16-year rule.
“The warning signs were glaring to the immediate-past administration but it chose the path of economic sabotage by looking the other way and squandering the country’s common wealth – a reckless decision that has brought the country to its knees,” Buni said in a statement issued in Abuja.
He recalled that the immediate-past finance minister and coordinating minister of the economy, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, had said that the zero political will to save under the Goodluck Jonathan administration was responsible for the challenges facing the country.
He, therefore, said the Buhari administration had embarked on well-thought economic agendas, policy actions, appropriate fiscal, governance, and socio-political reforms to revamp the economy and tackle the nation’s current challenges in the short to long term.
“As contained in the assented 2016 national budget, the administration of President Buhari is aggressively formulating and implementing policies aimed at diversifying Nigeria’s economy from oil to other sectors such as agriculture, mining and manufacturing,” it said.
