You lack moral basis to comment on Nigeria's economy- APC Chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun tells PDP

APC Chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun, says the PDP lacks the moral basis to comment on the state of the Nigerian economy since it was the party's policies that led the country to its present state. Oyegun stated this in a statement he released by his media aide, Segun Dipe. Read the statement below...
The People’s Democratic Party (PDP), which brought Nigeria to its present situation after 16 years of locust, lacks the moral basis and the credibility to comment on the country’s economy or condemn a government that is working hard to clear the mess left behind by the disgraced former ruling party, according to the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Oyegun.
In a statement issued by his Media Office in Abuja on Thursday, the National Chairman said it is stomach-churning and downright immoral for the ruinous PDP, which has yet to show remorse or exhibit any form of penitence for presiding over the mindless looting of the nation’s treasury, to now put itself up as the saviour of Nigerians. Noting that even among thieves, there must be honour, the Chairman said Nigerians, who are now bearing the brunt of the economy that was mindlessly mismanaged by the PDP, cannot forget in a hurry that some $15 billion – which is about half of the nation’s foreign reserves at the end of the tenure of the PDP-led Federal Government – was mismanaged under the guise of the equipping the military, when in reality the funds were largely salted away by PDP fat cats.
He said Nigerians are also not unaware that just before the last general elections, some $2.1 billion was shared out to just a few PDP faithful, either to be used for praying again Boko Haram or for phantom communication purposes, when in reality the soldiers whom the money was meant to equip were dying in droves. The Chairman listed other instances of the massive looting of the national till under the PDP, which never differentiated between the party’s finances and the Nigerian treasury, to include: — The $20 billion in oil proceeds that was never paid into the Federation Account — The N33 trillion in national oil revenue that was not accounted for, considering that while the nation earned in excess of N56 trillion over five years under the last Administration, the total budget for those years amounted to about N23 trillion — The $47 million that was distributed to a few individuals just to oil the election process before the last polls.
He said while indeed it was glaring that the PDP-led Administration was profligate and rapacious, nothing prepared Nigerians for the mind-boggling discoveries that have emerged in the past one year, including the fact that just a handful of people could have plundered far more than half of what belonged to a country of over 170 million people! ”What is happening now is clear: Just because the farmer has not checkmated the thief, he (thief) has become so emboldened that he is now making a move to even cage the farmer from whom he has been stealing. “How else can one characterize the most annoying statement by the PDP that it is on a mission to rescue Nigeria, the tale of a killer presenting himself as a life saver! Are these people jokers? Do they think Nigerians do not realize that the stage for today’s tough economic situation was set by the same PDP that is now masquerading as a saviour? Worse still, is this PDP’s bold face not a ploy to distract the Administration that is on a rescue mission? “Nigeria is currently in ICU (Intensive Care Unit), after it was rescued from PDP. Yet, the same PDP has the audacity to constantly pillory the ‘doctors’ trying to save the ‘patient’,” the Chairman said. 
The Chairman appealed to Nigerians not to succumb to the antics of the PDP but to continue to support the efforts of the present Administration, which is working day and night to ease the impact of the tough economic situation on the citizens. ”Yes, we knew the situation was bad, but we never imagined that it was this bad. Yes, we knew that the vast majority of our national patrimony had been stolen and converted by PDP and their cronies, but we clearly under-estimated the scope of the stealing. The fact that our country and people survived the PDP and the last administration is perhaps the 8th wonder of the world. ”But we have long moved beyond bothering about this mindless party to seeking to bring the nation back to its feet.
What we cannot fathom is for the same PDP to now be heckling us and pretending to be the new saviour of Nigerians. “Engaging in a campaign of calumny by claiming that the country’s economy under President Muhammadu Buhari was deteriorating is so unconscionable on the part of the PDP, which frittered away the huge windfall that the nation earned during the years that oil sold for over $100. Even with the number of PDP operatives and officials who have confessed or admitted their complicity in the looting of the treasury, the party has continued to try to pull the wool over the face of Nigerians. ”This shameless distraction must stop forthwith, and here is serving notice that henceforth, the PDP will no longer have a field day in trying to twist facts and present the Buhari Administration, which is on an urgent rescue mission, as the villain,” Chief Oyegun warned

The apc are still clueless to think at this time they can still throw around stupendous figures of money and claim the pdp stole it and like mumu we will clap for them and say they are working. If a new manager instead of working keeps blaming the old manager for his failures he will sacked and replaced with another manager 2019 it around the corner

Oga Chairman, campaign is over and your party is in power now. All we are asking for is the change your party APC promised Nigerians that's all. Enough of all this old story because we are already tired of APC blame games. PDP is corrupt right? and yet life with the corrupt government feels far better than this hardship your part APC brought upon the nation out of your party mismanagement and clueless.

Enough oga John.

Says who, in which system of govt does that entails? It's high time these party obsessed people understood that in good governance, competence and good character are pivotal, and not PARTY! APC should learn to tolerate opposition and constructive criticism, else they wldnt deliver as required of them. #Sic

NIGERIANS ARE JUST TOO ILLETERATE, GULLIBLE AND MYOPIC TO THE EXTENT OF LISTENING TO ANY PDP (PARTY OF CORRUPTION)THAT TALKS ABOUT ECONOMY. THEY HAD OUR RESOURCES AT 100 DOLLARS PER BARREL, THEY EMBEZZLE AND SQUANDERED IT, ONLY TO BE COMPLAINING ABOUT SOMEONE THAT IS MANAGING THE ECONOMY WITH 40 DOLLARS PER BARREL THAT IS EVEN NOT ENOUGH TO CATER FOR THE OVERBLOATED RECURRENT EXPENDITURE THEY LEFT BEHIND. ANY PDP PERSON LIKE FFK, FAYOSE, RENO....THAT TALKS ABOUT ECONOMY SHOULD IDEALY BE STONED FOR INSULTING NATIONHOOD AND HUMANITY. THE EXTENT OF PDP STEALING AND SHALLOW MANAGEMENT OF ECONOMONY IS A LITTLE ABOVE EVIL.

So in Oyeguns small mind he has said somtin? Nigeria earned N56 trillion and budget was N23trillion. So ur mind did not tell u that federal budget is for FG while the difference was for statutory allocation to states. Or are u saying states did not receive Kobo from the N56trillion. And Amaechi was there with PDP

braimoh bello said...

How can you say you don't know the state of the economy when. Mallam amaechi was the chairman of Governor forum , when you all join mallam amaechi to ask for the money in the federation account to be shared among the states which ngozi warn us of severally. Mr oyegun please go and seat down you guys have killed this country, I bought something yesterday on lyrics for me to come back today the same thing has gone up times two. What a country ordinary nigeria cannot feed. Must we all die before you all know that nigeria is at the venge of collapse.

Mr Oyegun kudos to you for this master piece you wrote. You just removed the words from my mouth. Armed robbers are coming back to come and rescue country that they destroyed. Nigerians are wiser now. This is not the 1960 era where you can deceive Nigerians. We cannot be fooled. Thumbs up Chief Oyegun. You just hit the nail on the head

All of you are the same. You are only crying foul cos there is no much for you guys to steal now cos of the dwindling oil price.even if the money was available, Aisha Buhari would have spent all in buying hand bags. I still prefer PDP cos, they appear more intelligent.Economy would have still be moving forward if PDP were still in power.

I'm now convinced by the comments here that many Nigerians wallow in ignorance and daft. Those who served under PDP let government have castigated the corruption and mismanagement, how come APC who is barely 18months in is the evil. This government is committed to doing the right thing. PDP is a gang of criminals and if you support them, you are a criminal; no apologies
