APC knocks ex-Vice President for demanding apology






The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has berated former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar for lacking the locus standi and moral right to ask President Muhammadu Buhari to apologise to Nigerians for obtaining loans to execute some developmental projects.

Reacting to Atiku’s statement in a telephone interview, APC Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, said the former Vice-President insulted the sensibility of Nigerians by his call.

“This is the person that should apologise to Nigerians. His party plundered the fortunes of the country due to their recklessness,” APC said.

It added: “Vice-President Abubakar is not in any position to talk about borrowing and not paying back or apologising to Nigerians on any loan facility taken by this administration. He should be the one to apologise to Nigerians on how his party, the PDP, and the administration he served as Vice-President took loan for the Power sector but have nothing to show for it.

“Same goes for the railway, where the PDP-led administration borrowed huge sums of money without anything physically to justify the money borrowed on ground.

“Is it not ironical that Alhaji Abubakar will be accusing a government that borrowed and we can see what the money is being used for? It is on record that the loans taken so far by President Buhari’s administration are being spent on purpose for which they were obtained and the projects are physically on the ground for all to see.

“Atiku Abubakar lacks the locus to ask the APC led government to apologise; rather, he and his party should apologise to Nigerians for plundering the country into the mess we are now. Should the PDP government have judiciously utilised the loans they secured, even when our economy was bouyant and crude oil was selling for over $100 per barrel, there wouldn’t have been any need for the loans being sought by President Buhari.

“Sincerely speaking, former Vice-President Abubakar should have maintained a dignified silence than insulting the sensibility of our people. He should be patriotic enough to admit that the financial recklessness of his party pushed the country and our economy into the woods and not the other way round.”
