Joe Igbokwe, the spokesman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos state lashed out at President Buhari’s critics while appearing as a guest on Channels Television’s Politics on Monday August 12.
The Lagos APC spokesperson claimed that the PDP never did anything tangible in its 16 years in power, and further added that anyone who claims President Muhammadu Buhari is not doing well is a liar from hell.
“The PDP was there for 16 years and we didn’t see anything. In the midst of plenty, I cannot lay my hands on anything,” he said.
“Support your leader, don’t be a distraction. Anybody who tells you Buhari is not doing well is a liar from the pit of hell, given where we are coming from.”
“If the president can solve all the problems of Nigeria in one day, they would have done it in the 60s. It’s a continuum.
“As the population is growing, the problem will continue to grow. As Nigeria is growing, the problem will continue to grow. So problems will never disappear from the face of the earth” he added.
Joe Igbokwe was however countered on the programme by Ken Olugbo, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). Though he admitted that the PDP made mistakes in some areas, he however stated that they performed much more better than the present Buhari-led administration.
“I can’t condemn entirely everything that President Muhammadu Buhari has done. I have said it and I have tried to always be objective,” he said.
“But Igbokwe must admit that we are hungry. Nigerians are hungry. The economy is bad. We need to move to a next level (of economic prosperity).”
“I am not saying we had a perfect government, let us stop that blame game. We have passed that era of the blame game.
“We have always said it that PDP’s government isn’t perfect. In fact, Secondus apologised to Nigerians. For somebody to apologise, does that not tell you that we didn’t do well in a lot of areas?
“But we are looking at it. When you marry two wives, you compare the two wives. You have married the PDP, now you are married to the APC. Now Nigerians can see for themselves. We did better than what we are currently seeing” he added.
