APC Fires Back At PDP’s Spokesman, Compares His Statements To ‘Beer Parlour Gossips’ #Beekhaybee

The All Progressives Congress
(APC) has stated that the
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)
cannot provide any worthwhile
opposition if its spokesperson
continues to issue convoluted and fustian statements. APC-Spokesman Lai Mohammed It would be recalled that on July 26,
the PDP listed many “sins” the
federal government under President
Muhammadu Buhari had committed
and strongly criticised the Nigerian leader for embarrassing the country
during his visit to the USA. Vanguard reports that the same day
the ruling party reacted to the
accusations in a statement issued by
Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the national
publicity secretary of the APC. ”Today’s statement is the most
tortuous yet by the PDP and,
honestly, sounds more like a
compendium of beer parlour gossips
and side talks than a serious
criticism of a sitting government. ”To be in opposition does not mean
you have to constitute yourself to a
nuisance by rushing to the press
with all sorts of hot air statements. It
is the quality, rather than the
frequency, of your interventions that makes you relevant as an opposition
in a democracy.” READ ALSO: “No One Can Save Nigeria The Way Things Are Now” Mohammed said that the APC would
not respond to the latest in a series
of confused statements made by the
opposition party. ”We can only say that we have
been justified, and indeed prescient,
in our earlier offer to organize a
crash course for Olisa Metuh so that
he can more effectively perform his
role as the spokesman of the main opposition party. Those who thought
we were joking with that offer can
now see that indeed, Mr. Metuh is
seriously in need of some form of
coaching on his new role,” he
added. The party’s spokesperson stressed
that Buhari is focused on restoring
good governance, especially coming
after the worst stretch of
governance by the immoral and
reckless PDP. Mohammed recalled that even
President Barack Obama described
Nigerian leader as a man of integrity
with a clear agenda. ”President Buhari is working hard
every day in the priority areas of
tackling security and corruption,
rebooting the economy to provide
jobs for our teeming youths and
generally to restore good governance. We are sorry for those
who are too blind with hatred to see
this. ”We know that the PDP is terrified
by the expose of how the federal
government it led has looted the
treasury and created an
environment for impunity to thrive,
as well as the fate that will befall those who were part of the show of
shame and disgust.” READ ALSO: Buhari’s Cabinet: Lai Mohammed Issues One More
Statement The spokesperson assured Nigerians
that the APC-led government would
not interfere with the work of the
security and anti-corruption
agencies, and stressed that under
the Buhari’s administration only the guilty needs to be afraid. ”In the meantime, no amount of
mumbo jumbo from the PDP will stop
the Buhari administration from its
tough but inevitable task of restoring
Nigeria’s lost glory,” he
