Peter Obi has nothing to offer Nigerians - APC Brags

The All Progressives Congress (APC) says Peter Obi, Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate has nothing to offer Nigerians going by his released policy document.

Mr Bayo Onanuga, the Director, Media and Publicity, APC Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) said this in a statement on Tuesday in Abuja, saying that the document was empty and vacuous.

“We are glad that Labour Party and its presidential candidate, Mr Peter Obi finally released their much awaited policy document after many contradictory statements on same.

“After perusing the document which is very high on graphics and demagogic rhetorics and short on substance, we have come to the conclusion that the document is empty and vacuous.

“The document which is titled: ‘It is Possible: Our Pact with Nigerians’ offers nothing refreshing to Nigerians and comes across as total anti-climax.

“The subtitle ‘Action Plan’ was shamelessly parroted from Asiwaju Bola Tinubu’s manifesto,” Onanuga said.

He said many of Obi’s gullible followers must have been utterly disappointed that their man failed to offer them anything to be proud of.

This, he said, was after all the blusters and the initial leakage of the document which contained strangely, 15 pages of the biographical sketches of Obi and his running mate, Datti Baba-Ahmed.

Onanuga said Obi’s document contained no grand policy initiatives and options to excite right thinking Nigerians, adding that the document was silent about how he wanted to achieve his objectives.

“Instead, it will set alarm bells ringing in the South South and North East as Obi promises to ‘engineer the transition of Nigeria from a fossil fuel dependency to climate and eco-friendly energy use.

“As expected, Obi’s document contains fallacies and false statistics.

“He claimed China moved 740 million people out of poverty. He understated the achievement and was silent about the period it took the Chinese Communist party to achieve this.

“China moved close to 800 million people out of poverty and it was achieved in 40 years.

“This makes the present APC government’s plan to move 100 million Nigerians out of poverty in 10 years, more realistic than Obi’s rhetoric tends to suggest,” Onanuga said.
