The Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Delta state, Jones Erue, has come hard on his Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, counterpart, Kingsley Esiso, for attributing the current economic challenges trailing the country to the APC. He also did not spare the administration of former President, Goodluck Jonathan in his response.
Esiso had told PDP Patriotic Ladies in Asaba yesterday that the APC-led Federal Government has brought untold hardship, stressing that “They came with the mantra of change that former President Goodluck Jonathan was not doing well but the reverse is now the case. We will endure till 2019 to change the change.”
But speaking on Thursday at an APC ward executive meeting convened by a former House of Representative member, Hon Solomon Edoja at Kokori, Delta State, Erue who was represented by the deputy chairman of the party, Cyril Ogodo, averred that it is totally wrong for anyone to make such utterances against the APC.
While accusing the PDP of stealing the treasuries of Delta State and federal government dry, Erue said: “If President Goodluck Jonathan was still in power, fathers would have been selling their children for them to get their daily bread.
“What Esiso should be doing is to ask Governor Ifeanyi Okowa what he did with the N15billion bailout fund received from the federal government since his assumption of office.
“Prior to the 2015 general election, local government workers in the state were owed over 8months salary backlog, was it Buhari too that caused that?
“The PDP stole the country dry and I believe the Delta state PDP chairman is just waking up from his slumber. He needs to go back to bed and wakeup to reality.”
