The APC Presidential Campaign Organisation (APCPCO) has accused the Jonathan-led PDP administration of using the opposing party as a whipping boy to divert attention from its woeful failures and broken promises.
In a press statement on Tuesday in Abuja, signed by Director, Media and Publicity of its presidential campaign, Malam Garba Shehu, the APC said it was bemused by the allegations by the PDP National Chairman, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu, that the opposition is behind the current biting fuel scarcity in the country.
According to Shehu, any ruling party that could lie through its teeth in order to mislead Nigerians automatically lacks the credibility to seek re-election.
He said the marketers accused the PDP government of owing them N250 billion fuel subsidy, and because they have run out of line of credit, they have no choice but to stop the importation of fuel.
In addition, he said the marketers also blamed currency devaluation, which they said, made importation unprofitable.
He said the APC is not in power and could not have been responsible for the current hardships facing Nigerians; including declining living standards, erratic power supply, biting fuel scarcity, poverty, unemployment and other harsh conditions imposed on Nigerians by Jonathan’s notoriously incompetent government.
The APC statement said rather than looking for someone to blame, Jonathan must find an urgent solution to the current biting fuel scarcity, which it said is complicating the existing hardships of the ordinary Nigerians.
According to the statement, the consequences of incompetence is a driver of change, which it said is the main reasons Nigerians are eagerly looking forward to March 28 to see the back of the ruling PDP.
