Akwa Ibom State PDP cautions APC against buck passing
Akwa Ibom State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has condemned the All Progressives Congress (APC) for attacking governors’ observations during their meeting in Uyo, insisting that it was time to stop the buck-passing and blame game.
The APC had accused the PDP Governors Forum of creating the many challenges the country was passing through in the 16 years prior to assuming power.
In a statement issued by its Publicity Secretary, Borono Bassey in Uyo, the party lampooned the APC for always blaming the PDP for President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration’s failure to tackle the economic and insecurity challenges facing the country.
He said APC’s reaction to the governors’ comment on the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and other Federal Government’s revenue-generating agencies, clearly exposed their ignorance.
Bassey added that the PDP governors were only restating the views expressed by the Senate and House of Representatives.
He described APC’s insinuations that the PDP meeting in Uyo was to facilitate Governor Udom Emmanuel’s defection to the APC, as “a tall dream and wishful thinking” since the governor was delivering democracy dividends to Akwa Ibom people under the PDP.
BESIDES, Governor Emmanuel has charged students of Uyo High School and Government Technical College, Ewet Offot in Uyo Council to shun cultism and other social vices capable of tarnishing their image, family and the larger society.
The governor spoke through Hon. Anietie Eka, the representative of Uyo State Constituency, was on a sensitisation visit to the schools.
He stressed the need for the students to eschew cultism, violence, prostitution, examination malpractices, rape, indecent dressing and drug abuse, among others, describing them as future leaders who must show good character.
“Uyo High School and Government Technical College are some of the best schools in Akwa Ibom State, and as such, your character in and outside the schools must depict you as worthy ambassadors of these great schools,” he admonished the students.
