Joe Igbokwe, the Publicity Secretary of Lagos State Chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC) has asked Nigerians to support President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
Igbokwe, who made the call when he appeared as a guest on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Monday blamed the nation’s woes on the previous administrations since 1999.
Igbokwe who stated ” that President Buhari’s government has not done well is ‘a liar from the pit of hell’ pointed that PDP was there for 16 years and we didn’t see anything.
“In the midst of plenty, I cannot lay my hands on anything. Support your leader, don’t be a distraction. Anybody who tells you Buhari is not doing well is a liar from the pit of hell given where we are coming from,” he said.
Reacting to the comment, by a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ken Okolugbo who also featured on the programme said that the APC led-Federal Government has not fared well in its cardinal promises.
It could be recalled that APC took over power from the PDP in 2015 with three cardinal objectives; addressing the nation’s security, economy and fighting corruption.
On corruption, the PDP chieftain accused the President of favouritism in the graft war, saying the onlt pass mark that can be given to the ruling government is in terms of security.
“I will never give a pass mark, the only pass mark I will give is in terms of security. And our security is in tatters now.
“On the issues of corruption, I have always said it that there is favouritism. Though they have made a significant progress, a lot of money has been recovered,” he said.
Speaking on the home-grown school feeding programme coordinated by the office of the Vice President, the PDP Chieftain noted that the initiative does not cover more than 15 states.
Okolugbo who lauded the Federal Government for launching the Treasury Single Account (TSA) also faulted the current administration for not tolerating criticism.
