The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has responded to the incessant criticism of President Goodluck Jonathan’s economic policies by the opposition All progressives Congress (APC), stating that they (APC) was nit happy with the economic progress the nation has been experiencing.
Speaking via a statement issued on Tuesday, March 3, 2015, the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Olisa Metuh said the leaders of the APC have disregarded every sense of positive thinking as a result of their desperate power-lust.
He added that the APC had become anti-people and would sling mud at programmes aimed at alleviating the sufferings of the people just to score political points.
He said; “We ask, why is APC uncomfortable with policies that promote transparency and accountability in the nation’s revenue system? Why are they bitter with the independent revenue e-collection scheme under the Treasury Single Account, which ensures greater monitoring and control of spending in MDAs?
“Why is APC bellyaching over the inauguration of the Automated Aviation Revenue Project and the directive that revenue collected by Ministry Department and Agencies (MDAs) should be paid directly to the Consolidated Revenue Fund at the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) for better monitoring and control?
“Is it because of their selfish agenda to pillage the nation’s resources to enlarge the economic frontiers of their leaders; the real reason for their apparent desperation for power?
“Our advice to the APC is that they should stop deluding themselves with their countless lies and deceitful promises to Nigerians. They should be bold enough to accept that they have no positive agenda and lack the capacity to ensure the unity, stability and prosperity of the nation”
