PDP urges APC to stop claiming its achievements

11 August 2015, 12:17

Abuja - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has urged the All Progressives Congress (APC) to stop appropriating to itself the achievements of the immediate past administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan, reports Premium Times.

The PDP in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh noted that the APC has been dancing around the achievements of the previous government in an attempt to make the public believe that recorded successes in critical sectors are for the party and President Muhammadu Buhari.

He said instead of trying to steal the PDP's achievements to earn undeserved praise, the APC and Buhari Should brace up, articulate a precise economic policy, assemble an economic team and urgently commence the delivery of the promises for which they were voted.

Metuh also lambasted President Buhari for refusing to constitute his cabinet almost three months after he was sworn-in.

He stated that it was unacceptable, not withstanding the reasons being adduced, for a government in a democratic setting to run for almost three months without a cabinet and any policy direction whatsoever.
