The member representing Aboh Mbaise/Ngor Okpala federal constituency of Imo State on the platform of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the House of Representatives, Bede Eke, has carpeted the All Progressives Congress, APC, for riding to power on the back of deceit and propaganda.
Rep Eke said it was now clear that the APC government lacked the capacity to fix the numerous problems confronting the country.
The deputy chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Constituency Outreach, who made the claims on Saturday in Abuja, said that instead of fulfilling the campaign promises made to Nigerians, the APC-led federal government was busy playing the blame game by accusing the PDP of 16 years of misrule.
Assessing the APC government in Imo State, the federal lawmaker said the Rochas Okorocha administration was a complete disappointment and has brought untold hardships to the indigenes of the state.
Eke, who took exception to the allegation by the governing party that the 16 years of the PDP at the centre was a disaster, said “APC came and told Nigerians that they can solve these problems within few months, why are they now saying that they never knew that the corruption had eaten deep to the extent that you can’t fix it within the period that you promised Nigerians?
“That for me, is not an excuse because if you want to take over government, if you want to lead people you should sit down and know what the people want, know where the problems are and we had expected that APC as a party should have studied Nigeria and know what the problems are”.
