The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said that the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) must apologise for the lies it told against former President Goodluck Jonathan during the build-up of the 2015 elections.
In a series of tweets on Saturday, the PDP also accused APC of not fighting corruption but rather ‘sharing dollars in Central Bank of Nigeria and doing illegal forex deals’.
PDP said: “Although Lai Mohammed has openly admitted to talking too much during the campaign, they must also apologize for the lies they told against GEJ.
“The APC and its members should become sober and apologize to Nigerians for all the lies and propaganda they dished out during the campaign. Boko Haram Slaughtered 18 women during a funeral service in Adamawa, the government is yet to acknowledge or issue a statement on it.
“They said they are fighting corruption, has the employment offer given to their children to NNPC, CBN, PTDF, FIRS, HOS been terminated?
“They tell you they are fighting corruption but they are sharing dollars in Central Bank of Nigeria & doing illegal forex deals.
“They tell you they are fighting corruption, they give their children CBN, NNPC, PTDF, FIRS, HOS jobs while you defend them here for crumbs. FYI: the 350 people illegally recruited into Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) are all children of president Buhari’s friends in APC.
“All the government has successfully done in 1year is to shut down the economy, ruin businesses, drive away investors, then give excuses.
“It is important to remind Nigerians that this Government has not awarded a N10m contract since its inception 1year ago except, helipad in Daura.
“When President Jonathan started the Abuja-Kaduna Fast Rail in 2011, APC and its members said it was a colonial LOCOMOTIVE. Is it not ironic that ‘Buhari’ who cancelled Lagos Rail Project initiated by Jakande 3 decades ago will now commission Abuja-KD Fast Rail.”
