Buhari spending ‘inordinate time’ cleaning the rot left by the PDP since 3 years—Tinubu
As political alignments and tactical maneuvers’ continue to take centre stage since the declaration of interest to run for second term by President Muhammadu Buhari last Monday, national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has claimed that his party led federal government has done for the citizens what the ousted Peoples Democratic Party did not even try in the entire 16 years that it was in power.
According to him, “President Muhammadu Buhari has had to spend ‘inordinate time’ cleaning the rot left by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)”.
While arguing that “APC is the direct opposite of the PDP which has perfected the malign craft of giving selfish ambition primacy over the public good,” Tinubu expressed regrets that the APC administration led by President Muhammadu Buhari has had to spend scare time cleaning the rot and plugging the holes in the corrupt system the others had institutionalised as their strategic policy and national direction.”
Continuing, in his remarks at the 35th annual Aminu Kano Memorial Symposium, where he was a special guest of honour, Tinubu envisioned a time when the party would take even bolder steps by modernising national infrastructure, reviving the textile industry, carrying out agriculture reforms by giving credit to farmers, and embarking on a mortgage reform that will provide affordable housing for millions of families.
