National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu has asked Nigerians not to accept the apology issued by the opposition party few days ago.
National Chairman of the PDP, Uche Secondus said the party has in the last three years seen all the mistakes they made during their 16 years in office.
The Chairman said they would like to correct these mistakes if given an opportunity to come back to office in 2019.
This statement was made at a Nation Building event organized by the party.
Secondus appealed to Nigerians to vote the party back into power during the 2019 election.
Reacting to the apology, Bola Tinubu at the colloquium organized to mark his 66th birthday which had in attendance President Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and many others, said Nigerians should not accept the oppositions apology.
Tinubu likened the party’s apology to the case of a thief who is only begging because he was caught in the act.
”Dear Nigerians, do not take their apology. They lied. They falsified. They even changed figures.
“For 16 years, they made fake promises and gave us fake figures. And they said we should not talk about it.
“It is like saying after all they did wrong, do not look at me. Just steal your own.
“That we will not take it off the table…no matter how twisting the mind of PDP and their supporters may be, we will continue to talk about it because you wasted our resources.
“You did not do what you promised Nigerians, what you said you would do when you were in office. The market gave you the maximum and production was also at maximum.”
Continuing, the former Lagos state governor said:
“President Buhari has changed the economy from the wrong direction to steer the ship back before the final crash because it was necessary.
“We have started the journey. And the voyage is on the voyage of hope and the voyage that we are reclaiming Nigeria.
“We are retooling Nigeria. We are reinventing Nigeria. We are redirecting Nigeria.”
