The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ali Modu Sheriff has called on the President Muhammadu Buhari led government to focus on providing solutions to the untold hardship Nigerians are currently facing rather than incessantly blaming the PDP for the failure of government.
This is coming few days after the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, had told Nigerians to hold the PDP responsible for the myriad of problems being experienced as a result of the lingering fuel scarcity across the country.
Speaking on Tuesday In Abuja, during the inauguration of four special committees, ahead of PDP May 21, national conventions, scheduled to hold in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Sheriff revealed that the PDP fathoms the pains Nigerians are going through in the hands of the APC led federal government.
“The leadership of the party shares the pains of Nigerians after one year in office of the APC. Nigerians now have an opportunity to compare the PDP and the APC and Nigerians are the ultimate judges.
Instead of APC providing solution, the APC is blaming PDP for lack of petrol in Nigeria. I would like to advise the leaders of APC to stop blaming the PDP. We are now in opposition, re positioning the party to show Nigerians that we can do better” he said.
Gov. Nyesom Wike of Rivers, the Chairman of the National Convention Committee, commended the National Working Committee of the party for finding them worthy to serve.
Wike pledged that the committee members would do their best and assured that the convention holding in his state would be peaceful.
