Abuja - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has berated former governor of Lagos State and national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for attacking the Minister of State for Petroleum, Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu for his poor handling of the lingering fuel scarcity in the country.
Tinubu, in a widely reported statement had asked the minister to apologise to Nigerians for saying he was not a magician in bringing to an end, the fuel crisis.

But PDP, through its Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Abdullahi Jalo, said Tinubu lacks the moral right to criticise the minister knowing the role he played in the emergence of the APC-led Federal Government.
The party noted that as an elder statesman, what the APC national leader should have done was to draw the minister’s attention on what he considered his shortcomings.
PDP, however, faulted the minister’s statement that he was not a magician because, according to the party petroleum product is something that affects the country’s economy.
