Nigerians paying for sins of PDP — Tinubu, S-East APC

Nigerians are paying part of the sins of the 16-year rule of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, through the lingering fuel crisis in the country, All Progressives Congress, APC, national leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, said yesterday.

Tinubu’s assertion on the fringes of a reconciliation meeting of APC South-West leaders at the residence of Aremo Segun Osoba, was also echoed by the APC South-East caucus at an interactive meeting at Egede, Udi Local Government Area of Enugu State. Tinubu said: “For 16 good years, PDP destroyed the country. We should not be lamenting about petroleum queues today if they had seen what is necessary and done what is necessary for this country.

“We can’t be emotional and in self denial. If they had done Awolowo Road, if they had done Lagos/Ibadan Expressway, if they put priority on our rails, if they put priority on electricity generation and distribution, we will not be in this mess that we are today. “Nigerians are impatient for what? I research Nigeria,they just want to see the direction of the economic policy and want to be certain of the future that we will not continue in the direction of leaderless, directionless and hopelessness of the past 16 years.”

One year not enough to rectify the rot

Spokesman of the South-East caucus, Mr. Osita Okechukwu, who echoed the point also at an interactive meeting said: “We are paying, unfortunately, for the sins of PDP. I remember vividly in 2010, when Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, then Finance Minister and Coordinator of the Economy, announced to the whole world the award of $23 billion Greenfield Refineries, to a Chinese company. “The refineries were to be located at Bayelsa, Lagos and Kogi states. There was jubilation nationwide. If they had completed the refineries, today we won’t be talking of scarcity or astronomical increase in fuel pump price. They squandered the money and put Nigerians in harm’s way.”

While assuring that the problems were being fixed Okechukwu, however, said one year was not enough for the administration to rectify the rot. Among those present at the interactive session were Mrs. Juliet Ibekaku, Deputy Governorship candidate of APC, Philip Eze, senatorial candidate of the party, local government and Ward chairmen. Challenged that Nigerians were running out of patience with the new administration, Okechukwu said: “We can’t stop pointing out the unconscionable wreckage the PDP unleashed on our economy in the last 16 years. The wreckage keeps popping up at each junction, despite the efforts being made to suppress it.”

    The same old story, but come to think of it, aren’t we better in PDP days with these challenges than in APC’S?. Who is fooling who?. It’s clear our old garment fits us better than the new. APC must go, we had enough of their bullshit, cos the challenges were more before the coming of PDP, and they didn’t complain. It’s clear the present APC FG are too old, lacks knowledge and understanding to handle the challenges of our Nation. We all know that a bad workman quarrels with his tools, APC must stop blackmailing PDP and bring the CHANGE they promised.

    PDP was there when the price of crude oil was $120/barrel. What did they do with it other than to snich it? Now the same barrel of crude oil, as of this moment sells for $37/barrel. Since the time of the military, our budget was always predicated on the price of crude oil. Legislathieves will even ensure that the price used then allowed abreathin space for them. You are now blaming GMB for the rot that had accumulated over the years. The panacea to this dilemma is to diversify the economy, boost agricultural production and explore the solid mineral options in order to strengthen the Naira

    “An effective govt will fix the power and fuel problem in six months” these are the very words of former governor of Lagos state, (Fashola) in year 2014 when he was granted interview on the state of the country’s economy. Now that the APC is in govt and he is in charge of the power ministry, is this statement still sustainable?

    Absolute nonesense.Tinubu n d rest of Nigerians are talking about 16yrs of PDP forgetting 15yrs of army rule in dis country initiated by d present president PMB.Nigerians have forgotten in a jivy dat democratic rule existed in this country and things were far better by today’s standards.Nigerians were doing wel n hoping for a brighter future until a certain Maj.Gen.Muhamadu Buhari overthrow Alhaji Shehu Shagari.From thence henceforth we were ruled by a succesion of military goons who violated,raped,mismanage,defaced this country for FIFTEEN long years before handing down d crumbs of what remained of a huge country called Nigeria.President Obasanjo came n saw this country hugely corrupted by sucesive regimes of Buhari.Babangida,Abacha,Abdusalami Abubakar.If PMB had alowed us in 1983,we wmt b looking for who to point fingers at today.Next time anyone talks abt 16yrs of PDP,they shd nt fail to mention 15yrs of military dictatorship ochestrated bo Buhari in 1983.I m NOT a partisan,i dont give a heck abt which party rules me,i only give a sheckel abt d quality of persons ruling me.APC sure lacks inteligence in utterances.i dnt know who writes thier speeches may be its Mr.Bla Bla Blanck Shit.If it wasnt,Tinubu would v had d presence of mind to remember that EIGHT of those SIXTEEN YEARS were administered by President Obasanjo who is now thier very own top adviser.Little wonder the wobbling and fumbling, a total failure brought in to cause more catastrophe.

    When PDP took power in 1999 naira was 89 to dollar, 16 years later they left it at 199 that is 110% increase APC met it at 199 less than a year later it is abt 350. Almost 100% increase. Only God can tell what it will be in another year.

    “How APC Destroyed Nigeria For 16 Years

    I’m usually taken aback whenever officers of the present APC administration release statements and interviews to sermonise Nigerians on how PDP administration has destroyed Nigeria for 16years and how they are working on fixing the mess created by PDP.

    It is non-contestable that between May 29, 1999 and May 29, 2015, “PDP”(in quote) occupied the seat of power in Abuja and control majority states in the federation.
    However, we have to get our fact right with respect to “who destroyed Nigeria between 99 and 2015”. I believe we should do a holistic analysis on this subject.
    PRESIDENTS AND VICE BETWEEN 1999 – 2015:
    Nigeria had three presidents between May 29, 1999 and May 29, 2015.
    Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, Late Mallam Umaru Yar’adua and Dr Goodluck Jonathan. Of the three, Obasanjo spent eight years in office(1999-2007), Yar’adua three years (May 2007-May 2010) and Dr Jonathan five years (May 2010-May 2015).
    Obasanjo with highest number of time spent (Eight years) denounced PDP to become APC and Buhari’s navigator to office. Similarly, of the three vice presidents between the period, Atiku Abubakar spent the most number of years in office (Eight, 1999-2007).
    He not only moved to AC/APC while in office in 2006, he also aspired to rule Nigeria on APC platform in 2014 and is a member of APC’s Board of Trustees.
    SPEAKERS OF HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVE BETWEEN 1999-2015:
    Between 1999 and 2015 Nigeria had six Speakers of Federal House of Representative.

    They are Salisu Buhari (June -July 1999), Ghali Na’aba (July 1999-June 2003), Aminu Bello Mansari (June 2003-June 2007), Madam Patricia Etteh (June 2007-November 2007), Dimeji Bankole (Nov 2007-June 2011) and Waziri Tambuwal (June 2011-June 2015).

    Of all Six former Speakers, FOUR are members of APC (Na’aba, Mansari, Etteh and Tambawal) with a combined period of TWELVE YEARS in office out of the sixteen years. Mansari and Tambawal are APC Governors of Katsina and Sokoto states respectively.

    PROMINENT GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS:

    Nasir Elrufai was DG Bureau for Public Enterprise and Secretary of National Council on Privatisation between 1999 and 2003. He later became minister of FCT between 2003 and 2007. As DG BPE and Secretary of NCP, he supervised the privatisation of NEPA, NITEL etc..ALL were emershed in controversy.

    By virtue of his office, Atiku Abubakar was the Chairman of NCP between 1999 and 2007. Both men supervised the privatisation of public companies for the period. They are APC members.

    Danjuma Goje, was the minister of state for power between 1999 and 2003. Rabiu Kwankwaso was minister of Defence between 2003 and 2007. Both are members of APC BoT and Senators.
    Samuel Orthom served as minister of state, trade and investment between 2011 and 2015. Nasir Elrufai was minister of FCT between 2003 and 2007. They are now Governors of Benue and Kaduna states respectively. Should we wash all these away?

    STATE ADMINISTRATIONS BETWEEN 1999-2015:

    Between 1999 and 2015, Gombe has had three Governors, Abubakar Hashidu (4years), Danjuma Goje (8years) and Ibrahim Dankwambo (4years). Both Hashidu and Goje are members of APC. That is a combined 12years.

    In Kwara state, all governors since 1999 are APC members save late Lawal who ruled under APP.

    In Anambra state, ex-Govs Mbadiniju (4years), Nwabuweze Chris Ngige (3years), and Peter Obi(8years) were Governors. Mbadinuju and Ngige are APC members. That is a combined 7years between 1999-2014. PDP Obi held sway for 8 years.

    Similarly, in Benue state, George Akume was held sway from 1999-2007 (and Senator 2007 till date). He is an APC chieftain.

    All Governors of Osun state between 1999 till date are APC members. Also in Ekiti state, of the 16 years, PDP’s Fayose only had four. Otunba Niyi Adebayo (4years), Segun Oni (3 years) and Fayemi (4years) are BoT members of APC.

    In Abia state, Uzo Kalu that held sway between 1999 to 2007 is a Chief of APC. APC governors have been in power in Lagos state all through the period.

    In Zamfara state, APC Govs held sway for TWELVE out of the 16years.

    In Rivers state, APC Chieftain Rotimi Amaechi was not only Governor for eight years (of the 16years), he also served as Speaker for the other part of 8years.

    Plateau state Governor Simon Lalong was a Speaker during the Dariye administration. The list is endless.

    APC CLAIM OF PDP DESTROYING NIGERIA FOR 16 YEARS IS ILLOGICAL:

    We can see that between 1999 and May 2015 individuals occupied various political offices, the actions (and inactions) of these office-holders contributed to the decline of the Nigeria and her economy.

    Majority of these people were at one time or the other indicted for corrupt practices and fraud while in office. Most of these people are members of APC and some appointed into offices. ALL of them combined are responsible for the sorry state of things in Nigeria.

    We can’t forget so soon that it was Saraki and Amaechi (as NGF Chairpersons) that moved for the Sharing and depletion of the Excess Crude Account, which GEJ bowed to between 2007 and 2012.

    In fact, they also pushed for the sharing of One Billion Dollars in Soveriegn Wealth Fund but was resisted by Jonathan.

    Today, Saraki is not just APC Senator but also the Senate President, while Amaechi is a minister. Can we forget so soon that Audu Ogbeh, the minister of agriculture and APC Senator Barnabas Germade were PDP National Chairmen between these period.

    The claim by APC defies logic in every sense.

    Finally, the continuous claim by the Buhari administration that “PDP destroyed Nigeria” for sixteen years only shows that the present administration is yet to understand the problem of Nigeria.

    Worse still, it is an indictment on all those those that held one offices or the other since 1999 especially at federal level.

    With Buhari having some of these people in his government and other positions of leadership, shows the insincerity of the government and ruling APC.

    I will advice that president Buhari save Nigerians these excuses and focus on the job he was elected to do. PDP is not the name of any official, APC Chieftains have been part of the system.
