The spokesman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos state identified as Joe Igbokwe has categorically stated that people who do not rate President Buhari’s performance favorably are liars.
He made this assertion while appearing as a guest on Channels Television’s Politics on Monday August 12.
He blamed the PDP for not achieving anything in 16 years and praised the current Government for picking up the slack.
“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.
Igbokwe was however countered on the programme by Ken Olugbo, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He admitted that the PDP made some mistakes but they were still better leaders than the incumbent.
“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.
