Challenges opposition to debate on achievements SAN FRANCISCO, March 19, (THEWILL) - The leadership of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) noted on Wednesday what it described as the spirited moves to politicise the content and direction of the last statement issued by the party where it alerted Nigerians on alleged attempts by some elements to frustrate President Goodluck Jonathan using the promotion of insurgency in the country.

A statement issued by the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Chief Olisa Metuh, said: "We wish to state categorically that we stand by our statement and restate our commendation to President Goodluck Jonathan for remaining undaunted and posting unprecedented achievements for the benefit of all Nigerians against all odds.

" The party said "It is an incontrovertible fact that Nigerians have witnessed a just and equitable allocation and distribution of resources and infrastructure across the entire zones under the present PDP-led administration and this is due to the forthrightness of the President and his vigorous application of his Transformation Agenda which has touched every segment of our national life.

" It maintained that "This is in spite of the enormous resources that have been channeled towards the fight against insurgency unleashed by the enemies of our dear country.

" The party therefore challenged the opposition to a debate on the achievements of the PDP-led administration on zone by zone and sector by sector basis, saying the facts are there and the achievements visible.
