Abuja - The ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) express “shock” and “surprise” at continued criticism by former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC).
“Whilst the PDP recognizes the inalienable right of citizens to hold opinions and identify with political platforms of their choice, we indeed find it very difficult to understand this type of bitterness towards the party even from persons such as the former Vice President who hugely benefited from the PDP. However, as the sole custodian of the sacred mandate of over 160 million Nigerians, the PDP will continue to maintain the high moral ground of decency and shall not in any way cheapen this sacred mandate by joining in political mudslinging,” Chief Olisa Metuh, National Publicity Secretary of the party, stated.
He said the people backed the party’s and country’s President Goodluck Jonathan and his developmental policies.
“The people are solidly behind President Goodluck Jonathan and his developmental policies and for emphasis, we wish to draw the attention of the former Vice President and the APC warlords to the achievements of the PDP-led administration. It is common knowledge that the private sector has been immensely successful in the last two years under the PDP-led administration owing to the continued implementation of our manifesto and policies including the continuation of the PDP ideology of transfer of wealth from public institutions to the private sector.
“This is the hallmark of the PDP-led Federal Government wherein hardworking private individuals are now thriving in manufacturing, trade, commerce and other critical sectors of the economy with business names such as the Dangotes, the Innosons, the AITs, the Channels as well as several others in the banking, telecoms, food processing, hospitality, transport, construction, oil and gas, estate businesses recording huge successes.”
