APC mocks PDP, says Buhari’s achievements will ensure ruling party continues in power

The All Progressives Congress (APC), on Tuesday, January 5, revealed that it is impossible for Nigerians to want the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) back in power; considering monumental actions carried out by President Muhammadu Buhari to improve Nigeria’s economy.

According to the APC, the 16 years PDP ruled between 1999 and 2015 was a disaster; and likewise said that Nigerians should not be reminded of the trauma of those years.

This was contained in a statement issued by the National Secretary of the APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), Sen. John Udoedehe.

He was responding to a recent statement by the PDP’s National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan; where the opposition party also claimed that Nigerians want them back in power.

The APC’s statement read in part, “We have noted yet with concern the tales and also ramblings issued by PDP as a press release; which to all discerning members of the public, it is full of sounds and fury, signifying nothing.

“Nigerians should be spared the trauma of a reminder of the disaster of PDP’s 16 years of misadventure in government.

“It should allow Nigerians to forgive it for the numerous transgressions as well as agony it had put Nigerians through many years of misrule; which their National Chairman had rightly publicly apologized to Nigerians.

“With the monumental interventions which President @MBuhari is carrying out, which has leap-frogged Nigeria to the largest economy in Africa and the 25th largest economy in the world why would PDP be deluding itself that Nigerians want it back? Is it a case of selective amnesia?”

Meanwhile, the Chairman of the Senate Committee on the Nigerian Army, Ali Ndume, on Monday, January 5, stated that the force would recruit 8000 soldiers for counter-terrorism and also anti-banditry campaigns.

Ndume made this disclosure to journalists in Borno.

According to the lawmaker, the army’s operations would be improved to combat the Boko Haram activities; as well as other security challenges in 2021.

Ndume also said: “Instead of the normal recruitment of 4,000 or 6,000 soldiers at a time; we have asked them (the Nigerian Army) to recruit about 8,000 soldiers.

“The prospective recruits are undergoing training in Zaria as well as Falgori in order to build up the number of troops. The Nigerian Army had taken delivery of more sophisticated equipment for its operations.”
