APC Campaign berates PDP'S politics of duplicity

Listen to article

Abuja, Nigeria, 28 Feb 2015:  The APC Presidential Campaign Organization (APCPCO) has said the return of fuel queues at filling stations is a confirmation that the policies of the Jonathan administration are founded on deceit and insincerity.

In a statement issued in Abuja on Saturday by the Directorate of Media and Publicity of APCPCO, the campaign explained that the recent fuel price reductions announced by the Federal Government was borne out of political expediency, rather than compassion, because the ruling party is desperate to cling to power at all costs.

The statement signed by Malam Garba Shehu said all the emergency projects and palliatives being bandied about by the Jonathan government are intended to pull wool over the eyes of Nigerians.

According to  Shehu, a PDP administration that greeted Nigerians with an unprecedented fuel price increase of N140 per liter in January 2012 has lost the basis to be trusted any further by Nigerians.

He explained that the APC Presidential Campaign was not surprised by the sudden return of fuel queues at filling stations in Abuja and other major cities.

He said the return of fuel queues, which are causing undue hardships for passengers, motorists and other Nigerians, has made nonsense of the recent Federal Government's announced reductions in fuel prices.

Shehu added that the PDP's artificial show of compassion towards Nigerians in the face of imminent electoral debacle should not fool anyone.

The APCPCO explained that a ruling party that once boasted of its invincibility is now confronted with the reality of imminent defeat, which it said, has shattered the false sense of security which until recently, deluded the ruling party into ridiculous overconfidence.

According to the statement, all the current PDP emergency reliefs or projects for Nigerians are borne out of the fear of defeat rather than genuine compassion for the Nigerian people.

Describing the Jonathan government as “notoriously unreliable,” the APCPCO said any policies founded on deceits would collapse and expose those who thrive on duplicity.

Shehu said that the return of fuel queues was like an accident waiting to happen because the recent reductions in petroleum product prices by the Jonathan PDP administration were not based on sincerity.

The APC presidential campaign said the scales are dropping from the eyes of Nigerians day and after day, and that they are embracing the imperatives of change for a better Nigeria.

How Buhari will fund social investments, safety nets – APC Campaign

Abuja, Nigeria ,   01   March  2015: The APC Presidential Campaign Organization (APCPCO) has assured that it will not impose any harsh tax regime on Nigerians but will rather employ existing tax policies of government to fund its people-oriented programmes.

In a press statement by Malam Garba Shehu, Director of Media and Publicity of the APC Presidential Campaign Organization, the party said that under the present administration of President Jonathan, the Nigerian people and the business community are reeling under multiple, discriminatory and harsh tax regime.

The prevailing harsh tax regime under the present PDP government has caused untold hardship on the population while manufacturing industries in the country are threatening to shut down their operations because of the high electricity tariff imposed on them when they depend largely on generating sets to power their factories (See the cover story in The Guardian of Thursday, 26 February 2015).

An APC administration will make life more bearable and manageable for both the citizens and the business sector by entrenching discipline in Public Administration across all sectors of governance. Second, the party will plug all loopholes through which public funds are being lost. When these loopholes and accompanying wastages are plugged and corruption reduced to a minimum or totally stamped out as promised by our Presidential candidate, General Buhari, the government will have reasonable quantum of funds to social investments programmes in education, health, and safety nets such as free school meals for children, emergency public works for unemployed youth and pensions for the elderly. Third, an APC government will seek to ensure that all existing laws and policies on taxation will be implemented judiciously while tax authorities and administrators will be encouraged to do their work with the utmost transparency.

The PDP is obviously scared of the credible alternative which the APC represents and will go to any length to lie to Nigerians on any issue including those on which the APC has not expressed a position. The majority of Nigerians are looking forward eagerly to the advent of an APC administration as a panacea to the deceit and fraud that has characterized the administration of the PDP in the last 16 years.

In view of the mood of the nation and the glaring cases of stealing, corruption, fraud and looting that is the character of the present administration, we advise the PDP spokesperson to save his breath and make the burden of change and power transfer lighter by advising his party and their government functionaries to start preparing hand-over notes!
