The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has alleged that Buhari’s administration has not achieved anything in two years.

The party said this in response to a series of verbal attacks on former President Goodluck Jonathan, by the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its chieftains.

The PDP also said that the current administration spent most of the time on propaganda, instead of fulfilling its campaign promises.

PDP’s statement reads: "For emphasis, we reiterate our position that the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan performed well during its term in office. There are no indices anywhere in Nigeria or, indeed, in the world, by which the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari can be measured as performing better than any PDP administration since 1999.

“As at May 29, 2015, Nigeria was the largest economy in Africa, valued at over $500 billion; but a combination of the incoherent policies and incompetence of the ruling party have significantly shrunk the size of the Nigerian economy since the inception of the current administration.

“As at May 29, 2015, Nigeria was the number one destination for Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in Africa. Up to that point, investors responded to the policies designed and implemented by the Jonathan administration by investing billions of dollars in the Nigerian economy.

“The APC led Federal Government inherited an economy that had grown at an average of seven per cent per annum for the previous 10 years. Indeed, when President Buhari spoke at the Chatham House in February 2015, he admitted that the Nigerian economy had experienced growth for several years. At the time, several global economic experts projected Nigeria to be among the top seven growing economies in the world in 2016.

“However, the APC led Federal Government has managed to lead the nation to six consecutive quarters of economic recession without a coherent, cogent strategy to bring our economy out of the woods.

“It is necessary to inform the ruling party that Nigerians are suffering under the weight of the anti-people policies they have been forced to live with and do business under. As a result, the ruling party’s days at the helm of affairs are numbered.

“The professional propagandists of the APC will realise too late that blaming the ills of the country on past administrations while doing nothing about them for four clear years will not save them on the day of judgement. And the day of reckoning is very much at hand.”

Lauretta Onochie, the Personal Assistant on Social Media to President Buhari recently said that ex-President Goodluck Jonathan should go on his knees and beg Nigerians.
