The main opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari, to sit up and face the job he begged Nigerians to do, instead of lamenting on the things that have been consigned into the dustbin of history.
The National Chairman of the PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, stated this in reaction to the statement made by President Buhari, that the PDP is yet to explain how its manage the huge resources at its disposal, from 1999 to 2015.
Secondus in a swift reaction, pointed out that it is disheartening that instead of facing State matters, and paying attention to solving economic and other problems facing the country, Buhari has devoted more time to “lamenting and degrading the governments that laid the foundation” upon which his (Buhari’s) government is building.
The PDP National Chairman said: “I think by now, after almost four years in Office, and as a former Minister of Petroleum, and current Minister in charge of the same Ministry, the President ought to know that he was not correct, when he said a barrel of crude oil was sold for $100 for 16 years.
“That is wrong statistics. The President, if in doubt, should ask for facts, instead of dishing out propaganda. The records are there.
“Instead and having studied what was on the ground, he started working by assembling a first-class team, that travelled round the whole world and restored the lost glory of the country.
“If the President was elected to come and make a positive change, when would he do that, when all what he does, is to lament wrongly about what he met when he assumed Office?”
