MAY 29!!! Stone Us, If We Fail After 2 Years – Nigerians Remember APC’s Words
A cross section of Nigerians, have said that the All Progressives Congress-led, APC, Federal Government, has failed to deliver on the basic needs of Nigerians in the last two years, because it lacked the experience and technical know-how to administer the country.
Recall, that a founding member of the APC, Prince Tony Momoh, had in April, last year, called on Nigerians to stone the members of the party, if by two years the ruling APC failed to deliver on the promised change.
Today being May 29, 2017, marking the two years anniversary of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC, many Nigerians have passed a verdict that the party has failed to actualise its campaign promises.
“Stone us”, Momoh said confidently, if within two years the current government fails to reverse the situation, even as he stressed that this government is laying the foundation for a new and better country.
“Nigerians are complaining of bad roads. But what happened to the several billions of money voted for road construction and rehabilitation under the Jonathan government? If we complain about security challenges, what happened to the billions of dollars voted to fight insurgency, which some people mismanaged, the same with power and other necessary infrastructure?” he had asked.
Reminding the APC of its failure, the Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led National Caretaker Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party, has said that there is no tangible achievement for the APC, to celebrate about.
In a statement issued by the Spokesman of the party, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, the opposition party accused the APC of squandering all the chances it has to leverage of the achievements it met on assumption of office, through its intolerance and highhandedness to any form of opposition, as well as crass ineptitude in governance.
It said: “We make bold to state that our deepest concern as a party to grow democracy in Nigeria, engendered the solid foundation we put in place, and guaranteed the agreeable atmosphere that enabled oppositions to thrive and consequently won elections.
“Unfortunately, this same party, the APC that benefited from free access to political space, has left no stone unturned in suppressing the PDP, and denying it to provide credible opposition in the country. It is Ironic!”
It dismissed the Buhari administration’s fight against corruption, as nothing but grandstanding and harassment of the opposition politicians.
The PDP said the APC had run the nation’s economy aground.
According to the party: “Record shows that Nigeria became the favoured investors’ destination in Africa, with the highest investment of $8.4 billion USD; and it attracted $20 billion USD worth of foreign investments in 3 years.
“But two years into the APC’s governance, as a result of incompetence and President Buhari’s de-marketing of Nigeria while globetrotting; investors (both local & foreign), have withdrawn their monies from the System, thereby, creating economic inactivity and consequent depression that we are being faced with alarming rate of suicide.”
