Atiku, in a statement on the same day, said:
“That is a tsunami of a lie! To begin with, it has been openly acknowledged that this current administration came into power without a single sheet of paper of what could be called a policy document. Nigerians are aware that in both 2015 and 2019, it took the APC six months and three months, respectively to constitute a cabinet. Perhaps the Minister might be interested in telling Nigerians if it is also part of the APC manifesto to foot drag in forming a government.”
The statement added that Nigeria experienced the worst economic recession in 2016 because the APC administration applied a catch-up strategy at the early signals of the recession.
Powerful PDP chieftain from southwest discloses imminent danger for Atiku if Ayu is removed
Legit.ng had earlier reported that a chieftain of the PDP, Dele Momodu, has said the presidential candidate of the party, Atiku Abubakar, cannot singlehandedly remove Ayu, the party's national chairman.
Momodu, who lost to Atiku in the party's presidential primary, said if Atiku unilaterally remove Ayu, some members, including him, will feel vilified.
According to him, those calling for Ayu's removal are putting much pressure on Ayu and trying to make him look like someone that can be pushed here and there.
