Atiku didn’t copy Buhari’s economic blueprint, Lai Mohammed is a liar – Campaign Org

The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar Campaign Organisation has falsified the claim of the Minister for Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed that Atiku copied the economic of the Buhari-led federal government.

The Informant247 had earlier reported that the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has accused the presidential candidate of the main opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, of copying the economic blueprint of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government.

Mohammed while speaking at a press conference on Thursday revealed that Atiku’s economic blueprint was a copy of President Muhammadu Buhari’s model of economic leadership.

Mohammed said “Let’s start with infrastructure. The former vice-president said, in his Economic Blueprint, that ‘rebuilding infrastructure and reducing infrastructure deficit will enhance the carrying capacity of the economy and unleash growth and wealth creation.

“No one understands this better than this administration. Even our worst critics will agree that our record on infrastructure development is next to none in the history of this country”.

While reacting to the claim of the minister, Atiku’s Campaign Organisation through a statement, Thursday said the minister was trying to decorate perceived achievements of the current administration of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The campaign organisation condemned the Minister for lying against its presidential candidate, adding that “he did the unbelievable by claiming that the policy documents and proposals espoused by His Excellency Atiku Abubakar, our presidential candidate, are the version of the economic blueprint of the APC.

The Atiku campaign organisation also referred to Lai’s claim as a tsunami of lies.

It said that ” 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, it added.

The Campaign Organisation disclosed that the first economic recession that Nigeria encountered in 2016, which could be regarded as the worst economic happening in thirty years, occurred simply because the the current administration applied what can be described as a catch-up strategy to the early arrival of the economic recession.

It said that the tenure of the current administration has been remained a waste of time.

The statement partly read ” the poor records of the APC in the areas of economic management, jobs creation, education, security and in virtually all spheres of our national life is the reason why there is a lot of anxiety about the 2023 general election. Indeed, it needs to be stressed that next year’s election will be a referendum on the APC and it is not in doubt that the ruling party in Nigeria will present a global case study of how a political party can lose popular goodwill within a short period.

“Nigerians of all hues, both the rich and those that are not; the educated and those who are not; the elderly and the young are all witnesses to the scandal that the APC has become in the art of governance.

“Nigerians are rallied in their frustration in the APC and the promise of a better future that our presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar holds for the country after his victory in the 2023 presidential election.

“What Minister Lai Mohammed reeled out as achievements of the APC is a compilation of the reasons why Nigerians have roundly rejected the ruling party. It’s nothing but a testimonial of failures. Conversely, what His Excellency Atiku Abubakar presented to the organised private sector in Lagos State last week represents the hopes of a new beginning, which Nigerians eagerly anticipate.

“Trying to associate the Atiku policy plans with the failed policies of the APC is the comical height of Minister Lai Mohammed’s aversion for the truth.

“It is contempt not just against the PDP and our presidential candidate, but also to the whole nation. Lai Mohammed must apologize to Nigerians for such insensitive onslaught against truth in broad daylight”.
