The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Caucus in the House of Representatives on Tuesday took a swipe at the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led federal government, challenging it to respond to the recent concerns raised by American billionaire, Bill Gates over the lack of human face in the administration’s economic policies.
The PDP also said that rather than diverting public attention with its usual deceit and propaganda, the Buhari-led administration should seriously heed the advice for Nigerians who had waited endlessly to see the actualisation of APC’s campaign promises.
House Minority Leader, Hon. Leo Ogor, in a statement, noted that life had become “more unbearable” for even millions of those who voted for the ruling party in 2015.
The Caucus further berated the ruling party over its uncharitable use of the Chibok girls’ abduction during the 2015 political campaigns, adding that its current propaganda cannot help the party win the forthcoming 2019 general election.
The group also expressed regrets that Lagos residents were put into much discomfort during an APC jamboree for the commissioning of a bus terminal when the man they were celebrating had been responsible for truncating the $100 million modern metro line project started by the Jakande administration, and for which the state paid huge legal costs.
The PDP caucus, therefore, urged the government to take its advice in good faith instead of taking it as another chance for its propaganda machinery to get busy once again.
