The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has told the All Progressives Congress (APC)- to stop blaming it for its failure in the past two years. Acting President Yemi Osinbajo had, in a national broadcast recently, stated that greater percentage of the 2016 budget was dedicated to clearing up the ‘mess’ created by the immediate past government of Goodluck Jonathan. But the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP’s National Caretaker Committee, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, dismissed Osinbajo’s claim saying….
“That is what they will always say because they have nothing else to offer. They are talking as though PDP didn’t clear the mess of the military. This government will always look for what to say. What have they been able to achieve in two years? They are always quick to blame everything on PDP because they have not done anything. If they want to use four years to clear mess, good luck to them.
“This is their pattern of defence because they have nothing to offer. Ordinarily, they should be able to come up and say we have achieved A and B, but in the absence of that, the only thing they can engage in is a blame game by saying they have been clearing mess.” The PDP noted that the economy was far better when PDP left office than the state of things today. “The so-called mess they said they are clearing; the economy was far better than what it is now.
“What mess are they clearing? If they are clearing mess, does that mean that economy should slide into a hole? Globally, every new government will always have a point of disagreement with its predecessor, but when you come in newly, you are expected to pursue your own agenda and assess the impact on the system. But the impact we are seeing is negative with the inflation rate, exchange rate, recession despite being handed over the largest economy in Africa, among other indices
“So, you said you are clearing mess and everything got worse under you, which mess are you clearing? You better leave the mess so that things can get better. It is horrible; they have nothing to offer or show. That is the reason they will always blame the PDP. “Nigerians are the judge in this because they will look at their standard of living and make their decisions.”
