The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has described the call of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for President Muhammadu Buhari to tender his resignation as silly.

The party charged the PDP to apologise to Nigerians for putting the economy of the nation into what it described as “voodoo economics and reckless fiscal policies”.

This can be found in statement signed by the party’s national secretary, Mai Mala Buni and issued to journalists on Thursday in Abuja.

The statement reads: “The attention of the All Progressives Congress (APC) is drawn to the latest ridiculous demand by a faction of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari return the country to the the voodoo economics and reckless fiscal policies the country was subjected to during the immediate-past PDP administration.

The APC further cautioned the PDP saying “Also, PDP’s silly call for the resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari is not worth the ink it is written with. Hence the APC will not dissipate energy responding. The PDP faction by its demand to return the country to the years where looting of the public treasury was the order of the day, has taken its orchestrated plot to deflect attention from the economic mess it left behind to new insensitive and shameless heights.

“While the PDP attempts to fraudulently re-write history and misrepresent facts on its misrule of the country, Nigerians are traumatised on a daily basis on disclosures of the startling level of pillage of the country’s commonwealth perpetuated under its watch. Instead of saving for the rainy day, past PDP administrations and their cronies literally looted the public treasury blind, using the loot to build luxury hotels and other properties, stashing loot in farmlands and hidden bank accounts.

He also assured Nigerians that the President Muhammadu Buhari administration is already employing all legitimate and innovative means to restore the country’s battered economy back to health in the quickest possible time.

“The results of the fiscal and economic agendas embarked by the President Buhari administration to tackle the effects of the country’s diminishing crude oil revenues, falling value of the Naira and resuscitate the economy will be evident soon.

The party urges Nigerians to give their total support to the administration as they wait patiently for the promised change that will soon become a reality.
