The Peoples Democratic Party on Tuesday criticized the Buhari administration, stating that the country’s economy had fared better during the PDP’s 16-year run as the governing political party.
In a series of tweet on its twitter handle, @pdpNigeria, the opposition party charged the APC to focus on resolving the economic woes currently ravaging the country.
6. Chief Oyegun will be better served worrying about such things than the spread of a false narrative.

The opposition party also slammed APC National Chairman John Odigie Oyegun over his recent comments over economic data presented by the PDP. It had been claimed that the data was doctored.
The part recently released statistics which painted the country’s current economic picture in bad light.
“There are no indices anywhere by which the Muhammadu Buhari administration can be assessed as better than ours.”
“APC should focus on resolving the economic woes they have brought on Nigerians.
“Chief Oyegun’s response to our media statement of 19/08/2016 is a summary of the APC led FG – long on prose & badly short of substance. His retort that we hired spin doctors to bandy figures is badly unfortunate
“Our collective misfortune is made worse when we consider that the chairman of the ruling party thinks that figures that show the parlous state of the economy under the APC-led FG are spin or that the poor state of the economy is an act of God.“Chief Oyegun needs to concern himself more with the salient issues.”
