The All Progressives Congress (APC) has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to ignore attempts by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to distract him by making insensitive comments about the economy.

The APC also said that the hardship being faced by Nigerians is a “direct consequence of the mismanagement of the economy” by the PDP.

The ruling party’s comments were contained in a statement released by National Secretary, Alhaji Mai Mala Buni on Monday, September 5, 2016.

The statement reads in part:

“In reacting to the orchestrated and insensitive comments by the PDP on the economy, the APC urges the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to remain focused in its bold bid to restore economic growth in the country.”

“In spite of PDP’s orchestrated and feeble attempts to blackmail the current administration and twist facts, the reality remains that the prevailing socio-economic hardship faced by Nigerians is a direct consequence of the mismanagement of the economy.

“It also includes the unprecedented looting of the country’s commonwealth perpetrated under PDP’s watch. The PDP’s attempt to turn truth on its head is fraudulent, insensitive and an insult to Nigerians.

“For the umpteenth time, the PDP must own up to its transgression and apologise to Nigerians. Going forward, the urgent task before the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC administration is to restore the country’s battered economy back to health.

“All legitimate and innovative means are being employed to achieve this in the quickest possible time.”

The PDP had earlier called for Buhari’s resignation due to the economic crisis being witnessed in the country.
