Jonathan, PDP playing politics with nation’s woes –APC
Sat, 19 Apr 2014   ||   Nigeria,

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused President Goodluck Jonathan and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of politicising Nigeria’s security by engaging in outright deception to exclude APC governors.

In a statement issued in Lagos on Friday by its Interim National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party said after deliberately excluding the governors from the meeting, the presidency and the PDP then engaged in outright disinformation and distortion of facts to make it look as if the APC governors deliberately boycotted the meeting, apparently in an effort to make political gain from the whole issue.

The party said, ‘’It is now clear that despite their inability to protect lives and property and to stop the terrorists attacks in the country, the presidency and the PDP are not interested in any genuine efforts to end the worsening security situation.“It is patently obvious that their aim is to make political capital out of the tragedy that has befallen Nigeria, rather than to ameliorate the cruel fate being daily suffered by the citizens,’’ it said.
