Akpabio Reveals Reasons Behind APC Failure


The Senate Minority Leader, Senator Godswill Akpabio has claimed that the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led Federal Government, has failed to deliver in the last two years due to lack of experience and technical skills to lead the country.

Akpabio expressed this while addressing This Day in Abuja.

Apparently mocking APC leaders, the former Governor of Akwa Ibom State said: “If it is not Panadol, it can’t be the same as Panadol. I believed that if it were PDP–between 2015 and 2017, we would have made more significant progress.

“A lot of plans have been outlined but, not much has actually been seen in terms of progress and delivering of campaign promises; most of the campaign promises have actually not been met.

“But from a politician’s point of views, I am just imagining that probably, we could have handled the recession better, if it were PDP and that is how I looked at it.”

Clarifying the reasons behind APC Failure to fulfil its campaign promises, Akpabio accused the ruling party of lacking focus and experience.

“But they can’t say that; before you go into government you must do a critical analysis of what you intend to do. You can’t go and promise free education when you are not sure of whether you are ready.

“Before you make promises to the people you must have done not just the detailed analysis of the economic situation of the government, but a review of the economic policies of the government.

“So, if they say they underestimated the mess created or left behind by the PDP that means they, on their own part, were not prepared for governance”‎, he said.
