The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has told the Information Minister, Lai Mohammed to stop dodging issues and address the monumental failures of the government he speaks for.
The main opposition party was reacting to allegations of subversive activities which the Minister leveled against the PDP and its presidential candidate in the February 23 elections, Alhaji Atiku Abubabar.
Kola Ologbondiyan, the spokesman for the PDP, on Saturday, May 18, 2019, challenged Mohammed to come up with evidence of subversion against the PDP and its candidate, if he has any, instead of playing to the gallery.
Ologbondiyan expressed irritation at the Minister’s allegation of attempts by the opposition to overthrow the All Progressives Congress, APC, led Federal Government.
The PDP spokesman said the Minister is overwhelmed with the challenge of speaking for a government that has failed to deliver on the promises it made to Nigerians four years ago.
Ologbondiyan further accused the Minister of avoiding issues pertaining to poor governance and maladministration, which he said, the APC and the Buhari administration are notorious for.
Ologbondiyan said, “Nigerians are tired of a man who keeps running away from the real issues at hand. If Lai has evidence to substantiate what he has been saying, he knows what to do”
“The federal government has no answers to the numerous challenges facing the nation. Nigerians are daily dying of hardship and all their spokesman can say today is to look for people and party to scapegoat for their failure.
“The PDP is determined to retrieve its stolen mandate at the tribunal and no amount of lies can distract us from realising this objective.”
