Federal Government of Nigeria says the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is more interested in playing politics with national challenges than helping to find solutions to them.
This followed the suggestions made by the main opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) at the press conference the party held on Monday.
PDP claimed it was dropping the toga of politics in the national interest.
However, the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, at a press conference held on topical national issues in Abuja on Tuesday, described the suggestions as political gimmickry.
Mohammed said, “unfortunately, the PDP did not respect its own words, as it played cheap politics while playing the ostrich.
“The party went ahead to make wild accusations against the President and his government.
“For example, the PDP said the government has refused to engage, and that we were running a ‘government of exclusion’.
“The opposition party then went ahead to reel out a number of suggestions as a way out of the current challenges facing the nation.
“Unfortunately, the recommendations by the PDP have exposed the opposition party’s gimmickry, and the fact that it was merely playing politics with serious national issues, especially security.”
According to him, PDP’s suggestions which were presented as original are the same resolutions that the federal government is already working to implement.
