APC, PDP disagree on state of the nation

The All Progressives Congress has called on the Peoples Democratic Party to atone for its sins and beg Nigerians for forgiveness for the pains the former ruling party allegedly inflicted on Nigerians while in power for 16 years.
But the PDP in its response said it was the current APC- led Federal Government that should be blamed for the pains Nigerians were going through , accusing the government of formulating anti - people policies .
The PDP said it was also wrong for the APC to continue to blame it for its inability to fix Nigeria two years after assuming the leadership of the country .
The National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi , who spoke with our correspondent in Abuja on Tuesday , had called on the national leadership of the PDP to stop throwing up what he called wrong claims .
Abdullahi, who served as minister of sports under the regime of former President Goodluck Jonathan , said , “ The PDP should stop throwing allegations everywhere. Before any kind of restitution can happen, there must be atonement . The PDP should have the courage to beg Nigerians for the evil they have done while in power for 16 years.
“ They once said with pride that they would be in power for 60 years without having regards to Nigerians and their feelings .”
In a statement, the spokesperson for the PDP , Prince Dayo Adeyeye , said the achievements recorded by the party while in government were undeniable.
He dismissed as lies statements made by Abdullahi; Special Assistant to the President on Media , Mallam Garba Shehu ; and other senior members of the ruling party such as former governor of Ekiti State, Mr . Segun Oni and the Director General of the Voice of Nigeria , Osita Okechukwu, in reaction to the comments made by Jonathan that his administration performed well .
Adeyeye said it was the belief of the PDP that the statements were borne out of ignorance .
Abdullahi said, “ I don ’t do personal attacks , but I know that the PDP is not a religion .
“ As to the issues they raised, we shall also respond appropriately. Meanwhile, tell the PDP spokesman that my name is Bolaji Abdullahi and not Ojo -Abdullahi. ”
Adeyeye , in his reaction , alleged that the APC officials were bent on continuing what had become an official position of the ruling party to reduce commentary on public issues and the art of governance to comedy.
“ It is shameful and embarrassing that having been in power for two and a half years, the ruling party is unable to point to cogent, convincing and data -driven achievements .
“ Instead, it has spent the bulk of its time designing and implementing a communication strategy around massive propaganda , half truths and outright falsehood in an attempt to continually deceive the Nigerian people.
“ For the sake of emphasis , we restate our position that the administration of Jonathan performed well during its term in office. ”
He said there were no indices anywhere in Nigeria , or indeed in the world , by which the administration of President Buhari could be measured as performing better than any PDP administration since 1999.
He said that as of May 29, 2015, Nigeria was the largest economy in Africa, valued at over $ 500 bn, alleging that a combination of the incoherent policies and incompetence of the ruling party “ have significantly shrunk the size of the economy since the inception of the current administration . ”
