Tinubu’s New Year Broadcast: PDP’s Nagging Irrationality A Blight On Democracy – APC

The ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, on Tuesday responded with a blistering attack on the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, over its swipe on President Bola Tinubu’s New Year nationwide broadcast on January 1, saying it was a testament to the party’s incapacity to serve as a sensible or credible opposition party.

“If the status of opposition party was a contested one, the PDP would still miserably fail to pass muster”, APC National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Felix Mouka, said in a statement. 

The statement further read:

“Democratic opposition politics is not exactly about being a masterclass of incivility or casting crude aspersions without justification. It is also not about haughty display of ignorance of essential social and economic policy or willful blindness to the administration’s bold and courageous efforts to raise the bar for sustainable growth and development of our country. PDP’s nagging irrationality is a blight on our democracy.

“Both in tone and substance, President Tinubu’s New Year address was measured, sensitive, articulate, highly presidential and an excellent fit for the purpose and occasion it was delivered. A New Year speech of any President is a goodwill message to the nation in celebration of the new year. It is a moment for tone-setting of expectations for the year ahead. It is not a policy speech delivered to a think tank. Even that basic understanding of the nature of a New Year speech stands elusive to highly deluded PDP.

“The President was forthright in his acknowledgment of the transient tough impact that some of the administration’s policies have had on citizens, just as he was categorical in expression of commitment to do everything under the power of his office to tackle prevailing challenges and secure a safer and stronger country for the benefit of all. The President addressed Nigerians with candour, sensitivity and attentiveness of a kind unknown to the PDP in its 16 years of reckless, and never again, rule.

“The President’s New Year message struck the right chord with Nigerians, assuring of the administration’s commitment to fixing power and energy challenges, locally refining petroleum products, crashing prices of products, creating jobs, enabling a more favourable business environment, tackling insecurity, expanding food security and affordability, implementing new minimum wage for workers, and more. Signing the 2024 budget into law on New Year’s Day is further evidence of the President walking the talk. The President is busy doing the job he was elected to do and will not be distracted by PDP’s idle mischief.
