Tinubu To PDP Governors: Keep Your Mouth Shut, You Planted Present Economic Hardships

The Government of President Bola Tinubu has asked the governors elected on the platform of the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP), who called on him to resign, to keep their mouths shut.
In a statement today, February 18 in Abuja, by the Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, Tinubu’s government reminded the governors that he has been battling to clear the mess created by the 16 years of the PDP’s administration.
According to the statement, the PDP held sway in Nigeria at a time of windfall but failed to improve the lives of Nigerians.
The Tinubu government accused PDP governors of abandoning the works for which they were elected but decided to distract him through a call for his resignation.
“The call (on Tinubu to resign by the PDP’S governors) is nothing but an attempt at distraction by people who should instead be busy supporting the President’s efforts at bringing economic relief to the Nigerian people.
“It is our considered view that the PDP and its Governors should not be seeking, through the back door of intimidation, what they have consistently failed to achieve by democratic means, since 2015.”
The minister said that the state governors have all benefited from huge financial support since the inception of the Tinubu administration, regardless of party affiliations.
“To whom more has been given, more is therefore expected. The President and his administration recognises the unfinished business of revamping our national economy, kick-started by the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, through programmes focused on large-scale infrastructure, social welfare, prioritizing the equipping and welfare of the military and security agencies, and reclaiming Nigeria’s strategic place in the comity of nations.”
The minister said that the Tinubu administration has tackled insecurity, with Boko Haram and its affiliates decimated.
According to him, the APC administration has cleared several liabilities left behind by the PDP government, including subsidy claims by oil marketers, Paris Club Refunds, unpaid pensions, gratuities, and salary arrears owed various categories of pensioners from liquidated and existing State-Owned Enterprises.

“These were some of the challenges met on ground by the present administration. We must continue to state these facts so Nigerians will know where we are coming from, and appreciate what is being done in its full context. President Tinubu is not and will never be overwhelmed by the current challenges the country is facing.
“He will not abdicate his responsibilities. He will courageously continue to wrestle with the challenges and surmount them, laying a durable foundation for the new Nigeria that is emerging.
“He has never shied away from acknowledging the pains of ongoing reforms, and has seized every opportunity to assure Nigerians that inside the pain of the reforms lie the seeds of lasting prosperity and national development.”
The minister advised PDP Governors to join hands instead of engaging in moves that are capable of distracting the president.
