The All Progressives Congress (APC) has faulted the call by a faction of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari describing it as silly.
National Secretary of the APC, Mallam Mai Mala Buni in a statement on Thursday said the PDP and their cronies should apologise to Nigerians and toe the path of honour by returning public funds stolen under its watch.
“The PDP faction by its demand to return the country to the years where looting of the public treasury was the order of the day, has taken its orchestrated plot to deflect attention from the economic mess it left behind to new insensitive and shameless heights”, Buni stated.
“While the PDP attempts to fraudulently re-write history and misrepresent facts on its misrule of the country, Nigerians are traumatised on a daily basis on disclosures of the startling level of pillage of the country’s commonwealth perpetuated under its watch. “Instead of saving for the rainy day, past PDP administrations and their cronies literally looted the public treasury blind, using the loot to build luxury hotels and other properties, stashing loot in farmlands and hidden bank accounts.
“While the APC led administration is open to and welcomes positive and constructive contributions on resolving the country’s economic challenges, the Party assures Nigerians that the President Muhammadu Buhari administration is already employing all legitimate and innovative means to restore the country’s battered economy back to health in the quickest possible time.
“The results of the fiscal and economic agendas embarked by the President Buhari administration to tackle the effects of the country’s diminishing crude oil revenues, falling value of the Naira and resuscitate the economy will be evident soon”.
The APC appealed for patience and cooperation from Nigerians as the President Buhari administration “works assiduously to pull the country out of the present hardships and restore the country on the path growth in all facets.”
