The call by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on President Muhammadu Buhari to resign has attracted the attention of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) as the party has called on the PDP to apologise to Nigerians for plunging the country into economic backwardness through what it described as “voodoo economics and reckless fiscal policies” rather than engage in a silly call for the President’s resignation.
The APC further stressed that the the Buhari-led administration is open to and welcomes positive and constructive contributions on resolving the country’s economic challenges.
This was contained in a terse statement signed by the party’s national secretary, Mai Mala Buni and issued to journalists yesterday in Abuja. It stressed that “Instead of this charade by the PDP, we advice the PDP and their cronies to apologise to Nigerians and toe the path of honour by returning public funds stolen under its watch.”
The statement reads: “The attention of the All Progressives Congress (APC) is drawn to the latest ridiculous demand by a faction of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari return the country to the the voodoo economics and reckless fiscal policies the country was subjected to during the immediate-past PDP administration.”
The APC further cautioned the PDP saying “Also, PDP’s silly call for the resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari is not worth the ink it is written with. Hence the APC will not dissipate energy responding. 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.
