The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has advised the All Progressives Congress (APC) led Federal Government to declare “emergency” on the economy.

The PDP National Publicity Secretary, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, made the call in a statement in Abuja on Tuesday.

Adeyeye also advised government to invite competent hands to manage and revive the country’s economy.

He, however, said that PDP had been vindicated of its positions following the acceptance of responsibility regarding the economic misfortune caused by the APC.

He said Gov. Rochas Okorocha of Imo, who spoke with newsmen after APC governors meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday accepted the responsibility.

Adeyeye quoted Okorocha as saying “We must take responsibility and we must never shift the responsibility to anybody. We are responsible for everything happening in Nigeria.

“The good, the bad, the ugly but we are promising Nigerians that we shall fix it”.

The PDP spokesman said that the declaration came after several months of bulk-passing to previous PDP administration.

He called on the APC to also accept other responsibilities as well correct the impression that previous PDP administration achieved nothing in the economy, infrastructure and policies in 16 years.

“For the umpteenth time, let us reiterate that the PDP’s achievements cannot be wished away.

“We therefore appreciate the APC’s acceptance.

“We urge them to accept all other responsibilities for all the wrongs they have plunged the country into and equally apologise for their serial lies.’’

    URGENT MATTERS OF THE MOMENT

    PRESIDENT BUHARI, DEMONSTRATE YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES TO THE OLD AGE FEDERAL PENSIONERS OF NIGERIA.

    AND BUHARI, ALSO ACCEPT YOUR RESPONSIBILITY AND REDEEM YOUR 2015 PRE-ELECTION PROMISES YOU MADE TO PENSIONERS IN THE COUNTRY AND HAVE THE DIGNITY AND COURAGE TO PAY-UP ALL BACKLOG OF PENSION ARREARS TO FEDERAL PENSIONERS. TO JOG YOUR MEMORIES ON THIS SUBJECT, I WILL REPRODUCE BELOW YOUR PRE-ELECTION PROMISE TO PENSIONERS AND YOUR PUBLIC CONDEMNATION OF THE PAST ADMINISTRATION WHICH DELAYED PAYMENT OF PENSION ARREARS WHILE CHOPPING INTEREST ON THE PENSION DEPOSITS IN THEIR PRIVATE ACCOUNTS. HERE IS THE FULL TEXT OF YOUR PROMISE YOU MADE TO PENSIONERS AS PUBLISHED IN THE VANGUARD NEWSPAPER ON MARCH 14 2015:

    I will alleviate plight of pensioners- Buhari

    Abuja- The Presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), General Muhammadu Buhari has promised to alleviate the plight of pensioners across the country when he becomes President’

    General Buhari, who spoke while being presented with a petition signed by a group of ex-servicemen protesting their treatment by the PDP -administration in the country, said that he “saddened by the current situation of military, police and all other pensioners”.

    He said, it is unconscionable to allow senior citizens who have served the country with zeal and patriotism in their youth to be subjected to indignity and suffering while waiting to be paid their gratuity and pension, with some even having to engage in protests in their quest to be paid.

    APC presidential candidate also said ” a situation where corrupt officials of state out-rightly embezzle funds meant for payment of pensioners or delay such payments in order to fraudulently earn interest from deposit placements with banks will not be tolerated” and promised to put a stop to it.

    As elected president, Buhari said he will invoke provision of Article 1.5 of the APC manifesto to ensure that months before retirement of any officer, his or her entitlements would be worked out and accruing gratuity paid on the effective date of
    retirement while pension will follow as at when due.

    While noting that the way and manner a society treats its aged and infirm is reflective of the civilization and decency of its people as a country. Nigeria must strive to provide for the youth and build a strong future for retiring senior citizens. This, he said, is his covenant of service which he pledged to withhold.

    SO, MR PRESIDENT BUHARI, IN LIGHT OF THE ABOVE ELOQUENT PRE-ELECTION PROMISES BY YOU, MY QUESTIONS TO YOU ARE:

    1. WHERE IS YOUR PLEDGE??????

    2. IS THAT HOW YOU ALLEVIATE THE PLIGHT OF PENSIONERS??????

    3. ARE YOU NOW YOURSELF CHOPPING INTEREST ON THE UNPAID PENSION ARREARS???

    4. IS THIS HOW YOU RESPECT THE SENIOR CITIZENS OF THE COUNTRY????

    5. IS IT NOT UNCONSCIONABLE FOR YOU TO ALLOW SENIOR CITIZENS WHO HAVE SERVED THE COUNTRY WITH ZEAL AND PATRIOTISM IN THEIR YOUTH, TO BE SUBJECTED TO INDIGNITY AND SUFFERING WHILE WAITING TO BE PAID THEIR GRATUITY AND PENSIONS?????

    6. IS DENYING PENSIONERS THEIR FUNDAMENTAL PENSION RIGHTS, YOUR COVENANT OF SERVICE WHICH YOU PLEDGED TO WITHHOLD???????

    PRESIDENT BUHARI, DARE TO ANSWER THE ABOVE CHARGES AGAINST YOU, OTHERWISE NIGERIANS WILL HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO BRAND YOU AS A CHARACTERLESS LAIR, A CHEATER AND A DECEITFUL MAN WHO SHAMELESSLY RENEGED HIS PRE-ELECTION PROMISES TO THE POOR OLD AGE FEDERAL PENSIONERS OF NIGERIA.

    LONG LIVE NIGERIA.
