APC mocks PDP, says opposition rattled by visit of Govs to Jonathan

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is rattled by the recent visit of some of its governors to former President Goodluck Jonathan.

Mr Yekini Nabena, the APC Deputy National Publicity Secretary, disclosed this in a statement on Sunday in Abuja; while reacting to PDP’s criticism of the development.

He, however, advised the PDP to focus on picking itself up instead of dwelling on frivolities.

“The PDP is obviously rattled and disoriented by the recent courtesy visit; by some governors of the APC to former President Goodluck Jonathan.

“Chairman, APC Caretaker and Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) and Gov. of Yobe, Mai Mala Buni led the APC delegation.

“At a time when the PDP and its leadership are grappling with a crisis of confidence; one would expect the failed opposition party to focus on picking itself up,” Nabena said.

He added that as a party for all progressives, the APC on its part will continue to consolidate on its national appeal and acceptance.

1st News reports that the PDP had, in an earlier statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, criticised the APC governors for visiting the former president.

According to the PDP, the visit to Jonathan by the APC governors is a direct acceptance of the successes recorded by it in building a strong nation with a virile economy.

The PDP said the visit is also a subtle step by APC governors into an agreement; that the PDP has the solution to the country’s challenges.

Meanwhile, former vice-president Atiku Abubakar, on Sunday, November 22, lamented that Nigeria could have averted sliding into a recession had President Muhammadu Buhari listened to his counsel.

1st News reported Nigeria officially entered into its worst economic recession in 33 years; after the nation recorded a GDP contraction of 3.62 percent in the third quarter of 2020.

However, in his reaction in a social media post, Atiku said the recession could have been avoided; if Buhari had cut down on the cost of governance as advised.

He noted that though the COVID-19 pandemic played a negative role in economic development; “we could have avoided this fate by a disciplined and prudent management of our economy”.
