The spokesman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos state, Joe Igbokwe, has lashed out at President Buhari’s critics while appearing as a guest on Channels Television’s Politics on Monday August 12. The Lagos APC spokesperson claimed that the PDP never did anything tangible in its 16 years in power, and further added that anyone who claims President Muhammadu Buhari is not doing well is a liar from hell.
“The PDP was there for 16 years and we didn’t see anything. In the midst of plenty, I cannot lay my hands on anything. Support your leader, don’t be a distraction. Anybody who tells you Buhari is not doing well is a liar from the pit of hell, given where we are coming from,” he said.
“If the president can solve all the problems of Nigeria in one day, they would have done it in the 60s. It’s a continuum. As the population is growing, the problem will continue to grow. As Nigeria is growing, the problem will continue to grow. So problems will never disappear from the face of the earth” he added.
The comments of Joe Igbokwe follow a reaction by a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ken Okolugbo that the APC led-Federal Government has not fared well in its cardinal promises. The APC had swept to power in 2015 promising to urgently address the nation’s security, economy and fighting corruption. On corruption, the PDP chieftain accused the President of favouritism in the graft war.
“I will never give a pass mark, the only pass mark I will give is in terms of security. And our security is in tatters now. On the issues of corruption, I have always said it that there is favouritism. Though they have made a significant progress, a lot of money has been recovered,” he said.
But speaking on the home-grown school feeding programme, he noted that the initiative does not cover more than 15 states.
