Abuja - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has declared that the current administration of President Muhammadu Buhari is not in any way better than that of former President Goodluck Jonathan.
The PDP made this declaration in a statement it tweeted on its official Twitter handle on Tuesday, August 23 and lists reasons for its assertion.
The party also advised the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC to focus on governance and stop bandying figures.
Read full PDP Statement below:
John Oyegun’s response to our media statement of 19/08/2016 is a summary of the APC led FG– long on prose & badly short of substance. His retort that we hired spin doctors to bandy figures is badly unfortunate.
Our collective misfortune is made worse when we consider that the chairman of the ruling party thinks that figures that show the parlous state of the economy under the APC led FG are spin or that the poor state of the economy is an act of God.

Oyegun needs to concern himself more with the salient issues. For the avoidance of doubt the salient issues include –
Foreign Investors like the Sun International leaving Nigeria over a hostile working environment where passports of staff can be seized by EFCC for several months without a court order.
Food prices have risen to the point where minimum wage (N18k) can not buy a bag of rice (N20k). It was N9k at the inception of this admin, the incoherent FX policies of the Buhari administration which have led to exchange rates of $1 – N315/N396, £1– N416.43/N510, €1 - N359.26/N442
The unrestrained mass murder of Nigerians in the North Central that has left more than 1000 people dead in 2016 alone.
The shambolic 18.4% performance of CAPEX for #Budget2016
Such figures buttress our point– there are no indices anywhere by which the Buhari admin can be assessed as better than our's. Chief Oyegun will be better served worrying about such things than the spread of a false narrative.
The next time, he wants to blame God for the woes brought about by his party, he should first read Jeremiah 29:11.
Again, we would like to give Chief Oyegun the compliments of our warmest regards & most abiding esteem. May God bless Nigeria. Everyday!!!
