Atiku’s media aide, Pedro-Obaseki berates APC for deceit, management of Nigeria’s resources



Don Pedro Obaseki, the media consultant to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, on Sunday, berated the All Progressives Congress (APC) for mismanaging Nigeria’s resources.

Pedro-Obaseki, who featured in a Channels Television Programme, Sunday Politics, claimed the country was better off before APC took over power in 2015.

The PDP chieftain accused the APC-led administration of lying to Nigerians and taking the country to a disastrous end.

He also defended Atiku for asking northerners to vote for PDP in 2023, adding that the party would transform the country if entrusted with power by Nigerians.

Pedro-Obaseki said: “What is happening is a reflection of the utter ineptitude of the ruling party. The fact is that Nigerians were deceived in 2015 and here we are. We all know APC packaged a bandit of lies.

“Nigeria is now on the brink. It’s different from what it used to be before APC came to power. They shouted for change but have taken Nigeria to a bad level.

“What this nation needs is simple. We know where we were as of 2015. Atiku fought up till 1999 to bring about democracy, a new change. Nigeria before the Obasanjo-Atiku government was in debt. By the time they were leaving office, our debt was close to zero.”
