PDP Slams APC says Osinbajo misleading Nigerians about government’s debt

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) doesn’t share the same view on the amount of debt Jonathan is leaving behind and has accused the Vice President-elect, Yemi Osinbajo, of misleading the public regarding the actual debt owed by the Federal Government.

In a statement issued on Monday by the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Olisa Metuh, it said Osinbajo’s action was an attempt by the incoming All Progressives Congress (APC) to discredit the PDP led Federal Government stating that Osinbajo failed to be “bold and honest enough” to also inform the nation that the bulk of the $63.7 billion total debt was incurred by APC states.

“It is indeed unfortunate that the Vice President-elect who has the details of the debt stock chose to be economical with the truth and to mislead Nigerians just to discredit the current PDP-led administration and rationalize APC’s unpreparedness for governance.

“Prof. Osinbajo is aware that the $63.7 billion is made up of external and domestic debts belonging not only to the federal government but to federal and state governments and accumulating since the 1960s, yet he deliberately misrepresented the facts to give the unsuspecting public the impression that the amount was exclusively incurred by the current federal government.

“Perhaps the Vice President-elect avoided the details so as not to expose the fact that the APC controlled Lagos State has the highest external debt stock of $1,169, billion as well as the highest domestic debt stock of N278, 867 billion.

“Furthermore we find it unacceptable and unstatesmanly for the Vice President-elect to attempt to mislead Nigerians into believing that the total federal debt component was accumulated under the President Goodluck Jonathan-led administration, when it is on record that a greater chunk of the amount was inherited,” PDP said.

According to the Nation, APC explained that part of the contemporary borrowing from the domestic bond market was occasioned by the global economic and financial crisis, as well as the downturn in crude oil revenue, which adversely affected other economies of the world.

It asked if the APC and the President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, did not know about the economic challenges caused by the dwindling oil revenues before making their bogus promises to Nigerians.

“The APC must fulfill its promises for which Nigerians voted for them. Were they not aware of the debt stock and the dwindling oil revenues before making their huge promises to the people? Were the promises only intended as carrots to mislead the people and deceitfully win their votes after which they are dumped?” the statement added.

PDP asks Buhari to explain embarrassing protocol gaffe, low-down treatment by UK Prime Minister, David Cameron

Buhari awaiting to be received by UK Prime Minister David Cameron
The leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP yesterday took a swipe at the President- elect, Muhammadu Buhari for snubbing the handover programme put in place by the Federal Government to transmit power to him by Friday, May 29, 2015, describing the action as lack of democratic discipline.

In a statement yesterday by PDP National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, the PDP noted that it was indeed disappointed over the act, adding that the incoming administration must ensure that it delivered on campaign promises to Nigeria and Nigerians.

Metuh said that the President-elect owes Nigerians explanations on why he snubbed the prayer sessions scheduled for Friday and Sunday for Muslims and Christians respectively to usher in four years of his in-coming administration “as well as the embarrassing protocol gaffe and low-down treatment that characterized his visit to British Prime Minister David Cameron last Saturday.

The PDP while asking the President- elect to explain to Nigerians why the low down treatment in Britain by the British Prime Minister, David Cameron, said, “It was disgraceful that due to poor coordination and crass ineptitude in the handling of issues, the President-elect was left almost stranded while waiting for about thirty minutes before he was received by the British leader and wondered if such is a foretaste of the muddling to be experienced under the All Progressives Congress (APC)’s administration.

“Nigerians, as citizens of a sovereign nation were thoroughly embarrassed when they saw their President-elect cheapened and kept waiting at the door of 10 Downing Street to see the British Prime Minister due to shoddy arrangements by his handlers.

“Indeed, they are becoming increasingly worried about the frightening unpreparedness of the APC for governance and the huge embarrassments they have been attracting to our nation. We know that the APC has been lying over issues. We also know that the APC and the President-elect have been flip-flopping and reneging on their campaign promises; but to embarrass the nation by embarking on such a sensitive visit without adequate preparations is shameful and completely unacceptable.

“We share the fear of well-meaning Nigerians on how a party which cannot adequately handle a simple task of organizing a diplomatic outing will effectively administer a country as complex as Nigeria.

“The APC has continued to give signals that it lacks capacity to face the challenges of governance. Such has been evidenced in the uneasiness of the President-elect who in apparent loss of confidence in himself has started reneging on his promises of quick fixes while confessing in a meeting with APC governors-elect on May 5, 2015 that he has ‘started nervously to explain to people that Rome was not built in a day.

“Instead of settling down for governance and working out how to fulfill its promises of making the naira the same in value with the dollar, paying N5, 000, 000 monthly to 25 million poor Nigerians, providing electricity on 24/7 basis, providing free meals for school children and allowances for discharged but unemployed youth corps members among others, the APC is busy inventing excuses for failure and blaming everyone else but themselves. We hope they will not blame the PDP for their Saturday’s embarrassing outing at 10 Downing Street.

“Furthermore, we find it curious and more than a co-incidence that the nation is experiencing an acute shortage of fuel and electricity supply at this point in time, when such has not been the case under the current PDP-led administration. We ask, are there some forces sabotaging the system to create an impression that the APC is inheriting poor infrastructure and complete system breakdown?
“Is this also part of the larger plot to embarrass and defame the PDP-led administration in an attempt to justify APC’s excuses for failure”, the PDP probed.

The party insisted that despite the challenges of insecurity and global economic recession that negatively affected many other nations, its administration had in the last 16 years worked very hard in repositioning critical sectors of the polity and laying strong infrastructure backbone that that any prepared and result oriented in-coming administration can comfortably leverage on.
It therefore asked the APC to get ready “to apply its much-mouthed manifesto or be bold to apologize to Nigerians for presenting false messianic posture and making false promises to them.”

Goodluck Jonathan Urges Nigerians To Pray For Buhari

Goodluck jonathan and buhari
The Outgoing President of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan has appealed to Nigerians to pray more for the President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari and the incoming government to ensure they succeed and not make costly mistakes that might have adverse effect on Nigeria.

He made the appeal while speaking at the Thanksgiving and Inauguration service which held yesterday in Abuja.

“I thank you for the support and I will call on you to pray for us who are leaving, because probably today is the last day I will speak to you here as the President of Nigeria. But you should even pray more for the incoming government because we are now trying to manage our private businesses while they are coming to manage the whole country.

So they require more prayers because I can make a mistake and it will affect me, but if they make a mistake, it will affect the whole nation. So I call on all of you and all religious bodies to pray for the incoming government to succeed because all what we want as a nation, both Nigerians at home and abroad, is for good government, prosperity, unity and peace.

We cannot achieve that without the help of God. I am quite pleased today we are here not to celebrate disintegration of this country, but we are celebrating the unity of this country.

We are here not for service for mass burial, but we are here having service to inaugurate the new incoming government. This being possible because of men and women like you who have been here praying for the country. God has designed everything” he said.
