The national publicity secretary of the All Progressives Congress(APC) Lai Mohammed in response to the call by governors Babangida Aliyu of Niger state and Sule Lamido of Jigawa state, that APC should not give excuses for failure, have asked the two governors to keep their advice to themselves. Mohammed said that the PDP have themselves to blame for making the wrong choices. According to Mohammed ‘the PDP made the wrong choice and lost out and they must live with the consequences of their choice instead of continuing to snipe at some imaginary enemies. He said the chance to be part of a historic opportunity to rebuild Nigeria was offered to the two governors on a silver platter, but they chose to put their personal interests above national interest.
‘The fate they now suffered is a direct consequence of their short sightedness and selfishness and they must accept the full blame for that. He said that ‘governors Aliyu and Lamido are also imagining where they would have been now, had they not betrayed the G7 of which they were original members, seeing the group up to the starting line but cunningly refusing to take off when the race was flagged off.
Mohammed said further that ‘Nigerians have switched from pre-election to post-election mode, making the unsolicited advice and the rehash of the vitriolic electioneering campaign rhetoric from the two governors totally out of tune with reality. Our commitment to Nigeria is sacrosanct irrespective of the state of the economy. Hence we do not need any cheeky advice from governors Aliyu and Lamido.
‘We are not making any excuses, but we will let Nigerians and indeed the world know how much the economy has been wrecked and the role of anyone in bringing the economy to its knees. Mohammed added that ‘governors Aliyu and Lamido are so bitter and traumatised that they have forgotten it was their party, the PDP that divided Nigeria along its ethnic, religious and regional fault lines. They have forgotten that it was their party that cleaned out the commonwealth in its desperation to win at all cost, at a stage shunning the Naira for the United States dollars and helping to crash the value of the local currency.
‘It is disingenuous to accuse everyone who calls for restructuring as trying to break up the county. History tells us that that kind of cheap blackmail will not work as long as the underlying reasons for the agitations persist.’
‘The biggest challenge seems to be that we seem to be allowing moderate voices on this issue to be drowned out by the reckless utterances of a few rabble rousers on all sides who may be tools in the hands of those who do not wish this country well. These are some of the people who arrogate to themselves the toga of spokespersons of our diverse groups.’
