Sule Lamido, a former Governor of Jigawa State, and a Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, presidential aspirant has described the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, as a party that lies for a purpose.
Lamido who spoke when he paid a consultation visit to the Bayelsa State Governor, Seriake Dickson at the state’s Government House in Yenagoa, the state capital on Thursday also described the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration as incompetent, visionless, evil and divisive.
He went on to compare the 16years PDP spent in office to APC’s almost four years in office, saying Nigeria hasn’t seen the change the ruling party promised, rather the country has become more divided and insecure.
He said: “APC said for 16 years, the PDP under Goodluck Jonathan was only there corrupting, stealing and killing. But today, it is up to us to reflect. Look at it, from 1999 to 2015 was PDP, while from 2015 till today is the APC. Look at it: Are we more united now? Are we richer now? Are we more secure now? Therefore, you can see that the APC is a virus of evil.
“They demean the PDP, they blackmail us, they demonise us, using religion, and today, this party (APC) has turned lies as part of governance and they are lying for a purpose. It is a government where there is no focus; it is a government you do not know who is in charge, whether it is President Buhari or the Chief of Staff.
“When they blocked the National Assembly for 10 hours and the House was under a siege, the Inspector General of Police said he was not aware. Buhari also said he did not know. So, who do you hold accountable for the siege?
“So, Nigerians can see that the government has no vision, no focus, it is incompetent, it is divisive and it is evil. This country belongs to all of us; Nigeria is for all Nigerians.
“Today, you can see the impunity in government. The level of theft in the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation is unheard of. They loot, they drain and they suck our blood like leeches, yet they say we are the thieves.”
