PDP, Testimony Of Everything Wrong With Nigeria –Fani-Kayode

PDP Campaign Director, Femi Fani KayodeFormer Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has described National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Olisa Metuh, as representative of a “sinking ship.”
Fani-Kayode, who stated on Sunday night on a Channels Television programme, ‘Politics Today’, was responding to comments credited to Metuh about the recently launched manifesto of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Fani-Kayode, one time Minister of Aviation and a chieftain of the APC, said in any case he did not expect the PDP spokesman to say anything different from what he had said as “he represents a sinking ship”.
He described the PDP as a sad testimony of everything that is wrong with the country, just as he did not spare himself of blame as a former member of the party.
Fani-Kayode admitted to being partly responsible for the failure of the PDP leaders having contributed to putting them in office.
According to him, the PDP that existed during the administration of former President Olusegun Obasanjo was the good old PDP, adding that Nigeria was debt free for the first time in many years at the end of the Obasanjo administration “but the country had since the Goodluck Jonathan era gone back to debts”.
Fani-Kayode, who insisted on clarifying the reasons behind his decision to leave the PDP, criticised the power sector reforms of the Jonathan administration, claiming that the country generated 4,300 megawatts at the end of the Obasanjo administration but that it is now down to generating as low as around 3,000 megawatts.
While reacting to his position as a former minister in the aviation sector, which has been said to have experienced more development since the administration of Jonathan than in his time, Fani-Kayode refused to criticise the sacked Aviation Minister, Stella Oduah, but noted that the resources available to them were not the same as the latter had access to more funds.
He added that his place in the history of the ministry was a special one, as he maintained the safest aviation industry that did not experience any crash, a feat, he said, was more important than beautifying airports.
