‘PDP is shameless for asking Buhari to resign’

The Federal Government has slammed the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for once again asking President Muhammadu Buhari to quit, calling the former ruling party a shameless irritant which is bent on distracting the government from its rescue mission and returning the country to ”Egypt”.
”We are on a rescue mission to resuscitate Nigeria after the PDP left it in a coma, and the noise from the same PDP seems designed to sabotage the rescue efforts. But we are not deterred,” the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said in a statement
in Abuja on Thursday.
The Minister in a statement issued by his Special Assistant, Segun Adeyemi explained that if the PDP had understood the meaning of shame, it would never have dared to even make a single comment on the same economy that it did everything to kill.
”While the PDP was emasculating Nigeria on all fronts, including social, economic and political, the rapacious party was deceiving Nigerians by giving them the illusion of growth and prosperity.
“Instead of showing remorse and rebuilding itself to a strong opposition party, the PDP has continued to blame the successor Buhari Administration which is left to pack their mess. PDP undertakers have
continued to engage in a blame game, when they should be hiding from the shame they brought upon themselves and the nation,” he said.
Alhaji Mohammed said what the PDP has consistently put up as a vibrant economy under its watch was nothing but a bubble that was buoyed by
massive corruption and chronic incompetence, an economy in which someone without any known means of earned livelihood would boast of
$31.5 million!
”They keep saying we should stop talking of the past, yet the past will not stop rearing its head. They keep saying we should no longer refer to the past, but how can we forget so soon that our foreign exchange reserves plummeted from $62bn in 2008 to $30bn by 2015, at a time when oil prices were at a historic high, reaching a level of $114 per barrel in 2014. By comparison, Indonesia, another oil producing
economy with a high population, increased its reserves from $60 billion in 2008 to $120 billion in 2015.
”The candid truth is that we failed under the successive PDP administrations to save for the rainy day, and we need to constantly remind ourselves of that so that we won’t repeat the mistake”.
