A presidential spokesperson, Femi Adesina has said lying for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) comes naturally.
Adesina made the statement on Thursday, June 18, when dismissing claims by the party that the President Muhammadu Buhari administration had taken Nigeria 60 years backward.
Adesina described the claim by the PDP national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, as a blatant lie.
He said the party had made itself blind to the many achievements recorded by the Buhari administration.
The presidential aide said the PDP is the father of lies as evident by the progress going on in the country.
"When the PDP lies, it speaks its mother tongue, its natural language, “for he is a liar and father of all lies.” The party has become willfully blind and deaf to all progress going on in the country," Adesina said.
The presidential spokesperson pointed out that projects such as the second Niger bridge, the railway expansion, road construction among others proved that Buhari administration is on the right track.
Meanwhile, as Nigeria continues to battle the novel coronavirus pandemic, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has on Thursday, June 11, pointed out that Nigeria can actually turn the situation into an economic victory.
This vice president disclosed this at the State House in Abuja after presenting the post-COVID-19 Economic Recovery Plan to President Muhammadu Buhari.
Osinbajo led the Economic Sustainability Committee to submit the report entitled, "Bouncing Back: The Nigerian Economic Sustainability Plan".
"We are confident that if the proposals are taken as a whole and implemented conscientiously, Nigeria will avert the worst of the impending economic headwinds, and convert this crisis to a victory for the Nigerian economy," he said.
