PDP slams FG’s ‘bogus lies’ over unveiling of rice pyramids

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday, January 18, slammed President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) over the unveiling of rice pyramids.

This was contained in a statement issued by the PDP spokesman, Debo Ologunagba who described the project as a pyramid of lies.

The PDP said, “Nigerians are already aware and the pictures abound of how the APC and its government ‘create’ fake pyramids of rice with sandbags and re-bagged rice stacked on pyramid-shaped wooden structures as busted in an APC-controlled state in the Southwest in 2018.

“Of course, there is nothing to celebrate in the APC pyramid of lies in Abuja. It is rather shameful that APC leaders are again ridiculing President Muhammadu Buhari; by making him unveil pyramids of allegedly imported foreign rice which are re-bagged as locally produced; just to create an impression of a boost in local production under his watch.

“If indeed, there is a boost in the local production of rice as the APC wants Nigerians to believe, how come the price of rice has not come down; but continues to soar from about N8,000 per bag; which the PDP handed over to the APC in 2015 to about N30,000 per bag today?

“It is on record that the PDP turned the waterland of various states of our nation into huge rice production hubs with farms and mills springing up across the country; leading to a boost in local production, drastic drop in imports; and the celebrated affordable prices of food products under the PDP administration.

“Painfully, the APC, with its incompetence, counter-productive policies, and incurable corruption; reversed all the gains made by the PDP in the agricultural sector and triggered a decline in production; which resulted in the high cost of food in our country today.”

The party said that APC pyramids of lies are nothing; but huge signposts of their failures and irredeemable proclivity; for lies, deception, beguilement, and fake performance claims.
