The Vice Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Peter Obi, on Tuesday, lamented that, “all the good brains are in the All Progressives Congress, APC, yet the country isn’t working.”
Mr Obi made the lamentation on ARISE News Television program, in reaction to a statement credited to Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna claiming that there is no single thinking brain left in the PDP.
“Well, all the good brains are in APC, but the country is not working. The good brains are in APC, yet the country is collapsing. That’s all I can say.
“When APC came, this country was growing at six per cent, since they came, look at where we are! Everything has headed south, not one item is positive,” Mr Obi stated.
The vice presidential candidate further regretted the country’s debt burden and carpeted the APC-led administration for not curbing the trend.
He explained, however, that while he was not against borrowing, there must be a purpose for it, and that this must be explained to Nigerians.
“We are using almost 60 per cent of our revenue to service debts. We are borrowing more. The Nigerian financial system, National Assembly, everybody is flying to London for a road show to borrow more money.
“This is what we should be discussing, what is this money going to be used for? Not discussing whether Peter Obi comes from Anambra or Imo.”
