The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has ridiculed the All Progressives Congress (APC), presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, over his recent comment that the former ruling party was full of termites.
Atiku’s camp informed Tinubu that termites and snakes were said to have eaten money and documents under the APC’s President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.
Tinubu had described PDP as a party full of corrupt politicians during the launching of the APC Women Campaign Council in Abuja, on Monday
He said; “Our opponents spent 16 years, they had forgotten that the highway is an economy, electricity is mandatory for industrialisation. They don’t understand the transmission lines and the need for maintenance. They couldn’t make a down payment for the trail track. They are a political party of termites.”
Reacting to the statememnt, a media aide to Atiku, Phrank Shaibu, reminded Tinubu of how corrupt the APC Government is.
Shaibu said; “@officialABAT, have you forgotten that under Buhari’s @OfficialAPCNg #monkeys abandoned banana for #Naira notes; termites left woods for vouchers; snakes left rodents for #Naira notes? #Amnesia is real. Nigerians are your greatest albatross, hamstrung and nemesis! @daily.”
Recall that animals have been blamed for missing funds without a trace or eating up financial documents under Buhari’s administration.
Termites were alleged to have recently eaten up some documents of the Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF) containing expenditures worth N17.1 billion.
