The All Progressives Congress, APC, Thursday, said the 16 years misrule of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, plunged Nigeria into its current economic chaos.
APC said this in reaction to the opposition party’s criticism.
The opposition party also claimed that the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration lacked the capacity to steer the economy out of its current woes.
But the ruling party in a statement by its scribe, Mai Mala Buni, described PDP’s reaction on the current state of the country’s economy as “insensitive” and a plot to “deflect attention from the voodoo economics and reckless fiscal policies the country was subjected to during its 16-year rule.”
The statement reads in part, “The warning signs were glaring to the immediate-past administration but it choose the path of economic sabotage by looking the other way and squandering the country’s commonwealth, a reckless decision that has brought the country to its knees.
“For the umpteenth time, the PDP lacks the moral basis and credibility to comment or condemn the government on the economy after the mess it left behind. Instead, the PDP must apologize to Nigerians.
“Nigerians will recall that even the immediate-past finance minister and coordinating minister of the economy, confessed that the zero political will to save under the immediate-past administration is responsible for the challenges facing the country.”
