Ken Okolugbo, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who featured on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Monday, tackled Joe Igbokwe over Buhari’s performance in office.
Okolugbo said the current administration has not fared well in its cardinal promises, lamenting the economic situation.
“I can’t condemn entirely everything that President Muhammadu Buhari has done. I have said it and I have tried to always be objective,” he said.
“But Igbokwe must admit that we are hungry. Nigerians are hungry. The economy is bad. We need to move to a next level (of economic prosperity).”
Okolugbo compared previous PDP administrations with the APC government and admitted that his party made some mistakes.
He said despite that, the PDP performed better in office than the current administration.
“I am not saying we had a perfect government, let us stop that blame game. We have passed that era of the blame game,” he said.
“We have always said it that PDP’s government isn’t perfect. In fact, Secondus apologised to Nigerians. For somebody to apologise, does that not tell you that we didn’t do well in a lot of areas?
“But we are looking at it. When you marry two wives, you compare the two wives. You have married the PDP, now you are married to the APC. Now Nigerians can see for themselves. We did better than what we are currently seeing.”
