PDP fires back to APC, stop play politics with Covid-19


The People Democratic Party (PDP), In statements signed by the national publicity secretary to the party, Kola Ologbondiyan, The party counselss the APC not to play politics with the Covid-19, but join other well-meaning Nigerians in seeking solution for the scourge.

“PDP said it is on record the APC, even as a party in government, has failed to adduce any meaningful suggestion on ways to address the raging pandemic, but had rather enmeshed in internal squabbles while the country is at risk”

Nigeria will recall that PDP had on several occasions advised the Federal Government on effective pre-emptive measures as well as the need for need for concerted efforts and safeguards in the fight against Covid-19.

The Party {PDP} had been on the forefront in canvassing for stringent steps at our international ports and borderlines, consequent upon which President Muhammadu Buhari approved a belated international travel ban from 13 countries.

It is also instructive to note that only yesterday, the Presidential candidate of the PDP in the 2019 general election, Alhaji Atikutiku, advised the APC-led President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration to reduce the pump price of fuel and suspend stamp duties on all accounts as palliative measures against Covid-19, which Mr. President also implemented today.

The party place on record that the PDP had repeatedly urged President Muhammadu Buhari to lead from the front, like other world leaders, in this fight against Covid-19 by addressing Nigerians; a responsibility he is yet to perform.

While our party and patriotic Nigerians are busy seeking for solutions, the APC and the Muhammadu Buhari Presidency remain distant and failed to demonstrate capacity in ensuring the safety and wellbeing of our nation.

The All Progressive Congress APC, is only sulking over the success being recorded by our party in the South West, for which it has resorted to making vague allegations and playing politics with a global pandemic at a time when responsible Nigerians are searching for solution.

The People Democratic party will however not be distracted in its commitment to the wellbeing and safety of Nigerians. As such, our party will not dissipate energy on the APC and its government that have no regard for Nigerians.
