The PDP also said that the President must fulfill all the other ‘bogus’ promises he made to Nigerians while contesting for the Presidency.
This was contained in a statement released on Thursday, June 18, 2015, by PDP National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh.
It reads in part:
“How can a serious government start shouting achievements and make bogus claims on the fight against terrorism when the effort is apparently losing steam as insurgents who had already been pushed to the verge of surrender in the Sambisa forest by the Goodluck Jonathan administration are now surging back into the country under the APC-led government?”
“We wish to inform the APC that the Nigerians will not take anything short of the commencement of the payment of monthly N5, 000 each to 25 million poor citizens beginning from the end of this month; ending of insurgency by the end of July as promised by President Buhari in his April 2, 2015 CNN interview; payment of monthly allowance to discharged but unemployed Youth Corps members, free meals to school children and bringing the naira to the same value with the dollar; among other bogus promises upon which they gained access to power.”
The PDP also said that the APC is engaging in premature celebration of its imaginary achievements after the party’s Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed stated that Buhari had already recorded numerous achievements despite just assuming office.
