The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described as laughable and diversionary, the recent statement by the APC ?wherein it made a failed attempt to launder its poor image by trying to tutor on issue-based campaign, which it has blatantly refused to practice.?
The PDP noted that while it had been showcasing its numerous achievements in all the sectors of national life, the APC had on the other hand dwelt on propaganda, political mudslinging and empty promises to the people.
PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh in a statement on Tuesday said ?it is rather hypocritical for the APC whose campaigns and press statements have centered only on insults, blackmail and attempts to caricature office holders, especially President Godlike Jonathan to now turn round to accuse others of a despicable conduct for which it has
?It is indeed public knowledge that the PDP campaigns, press releases and utterances of our officials have always focused on issues that promote the development, unity and prosperity of our dear nation. This cannot be said of the APC which dwells on abuses, promoting of violence and posting of lies, ostensibly due to its lack of manifesto?.
The PDP noted that in keeping with its ideology and strict adherence to democratic tenets and good conduct, it had based its campaigns on record of verifiable achievements and roadmap for a more prosperous future in line with the visions of its founding fathers.
?For instance in the last four weeks, our press statements and rallies have focused on profiling the performance of our administration, showcasing to Nigerians with facts and figures, the achievements of President Goodluck Jonathan in key sectors of the economy, including education where we have ensured greater access to quality learning through special interventions such as the Back To School programme, the Almajiri system of education, establishment of new universities and a host of other programmes; in transport, where we have revived the railways and the inland waterways as well as the massive investments in road infrastructure and power.
?Also, we have been outlining our performance in health and agriculture, where we have achieved increased life expectancy and reduction in food import; in economy, where we have become the largest in African and the third fastest growing in the world with Nigerian private enterprises thriving in all sectors. This is in addition to our effort in ensuring the stability of our nation through strict adherence to the rule of law and guaranteed personal freedom, which Nigerians now enjoy.
