APC’s six-year performance better than PDP’s 16 years – Yahaya Bello
Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello says the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has performed better in six years than the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 16.
He said that the APC’s superior performance was noticeable in the economy, security, and other sectors.
Bello stated this while appearing as a guest on Channels Television‘s ‘Sunrise Daily’ programme on Tuesday.
President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC government came to power in 2015, upstaging Dr. Goodluck Jonathan-led PDP government.
However, insecurity has been one of the major weapons used by the critics of the current administration to ridicule it.
Reacting, Bello said, “You are talking about my party being in charge for the past six years, yes, APC has been in charge of Nigeria and the government. We have recorded huge successes in various other areas even including this insecurity; daily bombings are no longer happenings.
“And if you talk about this banditry, kidnappings or all of these skirmishes, APC inherited the challenge and we are doing our best to ensure that the challenges are reduced to the barest minimum and that is why I continue to say that the challenges facing this country today, we should take it off partisan politics or political parties and let’s put our hands on deck to solve this problems.
“APC successes today within six years outweigh or outnumber the performance of PDP for the 16 years that they ruled. The statistics are there. If the Honourable Minister of Information (and Culture, Lai Mohammed), is not saying, very soon, we will remind Nigerians of where APC inherited Nigeria and where we are today, so, we shouldn’t ascribe the issues to political parties.”
