The Federal Government has challenged the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to prove its allegation that the All Progressive Congress, APC-led government is using state resources for electioneering campaign.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, was reacting to the allegation made by a media aide to the PDP Presidential Candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar. He said Atiku’s media aide’s allegation was provoked by the ministry’s widely circulated testimony series showcasing the achievements of President Buhari’s administration.
Mohammed dismissed the allegation as “acute paranoia’’, stressing that those who made the comment should prove it. He said that the Buhari administration’s massive achievements had rattled the PDP and its candidate, adding that their actions amounted to an acknowledgement of the administration’s impressive accomplishments.
He expressed surprise that the PDP that had said earlier that the Buhari administration had not achieved anything had now changed its tune.
