The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has slammed main opposition, Peoples Democratic Party for what it described as playing of bad politics out of the fuel scarcity being experienced in Nigeria.
The APC made the allegation in a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, made available to New Nigerian Newspapers Online on Sunday.
“We also wish to note that while we accept the choice of the opposition PDP to make political gains out of the difficulties that Nigerians are experiencing as a result of this fuel scarcity, we however condemn their desperation to make the government and our party look bad by maliciously fabricating and circulating fictitious statements in the names of our government and party officials and then attack us on the basis of those same statements that they fabricated in the first place. This is bad politics,” it said.
The party said that it acknowledge the difficulties Nigerians are currently experiencing as a result of the unfortunate fuel scarcity across the country; especially at this Yuletide period.
“We understand that the Federal Government is doing everything to improve the situation and bring succour to the people as soon as possible.
“We also understand the unhappiness of Nigerians at this situation, which is happening for the first time in the Christmas period since the APC administration came to power,” it said.
The party empathised with Nigerians and appealed for patience.
“We appeal for patience with the Federal Government as they make efforts to improve the situation and find lasting solution to the problem that has bedevilled every administration in our country, including the PDP administration under whose government, Nigerians would recall, the oil cabal enjoyed unprecedented prosperity,” it stressed.
