"Contrary to PDP's laughable claim that the duo of Tinubu and Shettima are distancing themselves from President Buhari's administration, it is on record that this government deftly managed two economic recessions, and pulled the nation back from the precipice where PDP's years of atrocious rule left it hanging precariously."

Tinubu's meeting with Jonathan's shows democratic tenets - APC

While addressing Tinubu’s consultative meeting with ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, the ruling party said it was an act of democratic intelligence and solidarity.

The APC said the criticism of the PDP against the former president was the highest level of hypocrisy and foolishness displayed by the opposition party.

"Again, the PDP proves itself as a party afflicted with chronic myopia, lacking in vision and incapable of recognising the imperative of elevating the common good of our country above partisan quibbles.”

The statement also made reference to PDP’s 16 years stint in the presidency while describing it as a misrule, corrupt, and squandermania administration.

Meanwhile, the APC reiterated that it is seeking the mandate of Nigerians to build on the foundation it has laid in salvaging the country from many years of misrule and corruption.
