…Berates Osinbajo On N8 trillion Subsidy Scandal
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) congratulates its Vice Presidential
candidate, Governor Peter Obi, for his outstanding performance at the
2019 Vice Presidential debate on Friday.
The party says Peter Obi amply displayed an unprecedented understanding
of the dynamics of the critical sectors of our economy with practical
solutions to the myriad of problems as against Vice President Yemi
Osinbajo, who dwelt on false performance claims and displayed scanty
understanding of economic issues.
The PDP applauds Peter Obi’s articulation of statistics; of practical
steps to revamp our economy, trigger wealth creation, massive employment
and return our people to productivity, through the revitalization of our
productive and manufacturing sectors under our Presidential candidate,
The party said Peter Obi’s spontaneous presentation of solutions on
critical sectors including education, health, energy, power and security
among others, shows PDP’s unparalleled preparedness to take over the
reign of government, in line with the yearnings and aspirations of
Nigerians to return our nation to the path of good governance, national
cohesion and economic prosperity.
The PDP however berated Vice President Osinbajo for not being able to
articulate any solution or show what the Buhari administration intends
to do differently, if re-elected but rather dwelt on lame excuses, blame
games and playing to the gallery.
This debate has further exposed the humongous corruption in the Buhari
Presidency, as Vice President Osinbajo could not provide answers to the
exposed N8 trillion sleazes in the fuel subsidy regime under the Buhari
It invited Nigerians to note how the Vice President was jittery and
ill-at ease throughout the debate, particularly as his most of his
performance claims especially in food provision, infrastructure and
security were all fictitious.
The party further faulted Prof. Osinbajo’s attempt to brand the pdp as
corrupt, saying all records and statistics show that corruption
escalated under President Buhari and that his administration ranks as
the most corrupt in the history of our nation.
The party submitted that Prof. Osinbajo and the Buhari administration
lack every moral standing to speak on social welfare when the Vice
President is yet to explain the whereabouts of the N33 billion meant for
the provision of food and other items for Internally Displaced Persons
(IDPs) suffering in the North East.
Finally, the PDP awaits the main Presidential debate and challenges
President Buhari to perish the idea of sending a proxy but to get ready
to face the PDP candidate, Atiku Abubakar, before all Nigerians.
