APC: A Group Of Desperados Who United To Sieze Power — PDP
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), as “a group of desperados who united to seize power.”
The party’s spokesman, Dayo Adeyeye, in an interview with The Sun, insisted that APC had not made any significant impact on which they could base their 2019 campaign.
“What legacy would Lai Mohammed say that APC has bequeathed to Nigerians since 2015,” Adeyeye asked.
“What will the APC use to campaign? Will they say that they have improved the economy? Will they say they have stabilised the polity, when there are now centrifugal forces pulling the polity apart?
“We are confident because the APC is not a political party. It is just an amalgam of very desperate people. What I will call an amalgam of desperadoes whose sole purpose was just to push the PDP out of power.
“Now that they have achieved that, we have seen that they have no plans for Nigerians.
“Nigeria was the number one investment destination in Africa. Today, we are not even among the first 20. Youth unemployment has sky-rocked. The economy is in a parlous state.
“Look, at the time we left government, the exchange rate was N170 to one dollar. Today, the exchange rate has increased because of incoherent policies.
“Since they assumed power, they have been borrowing money without caution. And they have increased the debt profile of Nigeria so much so that they have said they are going to put a break to borrowing.
“The question we are going to ask Nigerians in 2019 is whether they are better off now, than they were in 2015. That is just the simple question”, he stated.
