Don Pedro Obaseki, media consultant to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar, on Sunday rebuked the All Progressives Congress (APC) for mismanagement of Nigeria’s resources.
Pedro-Obaseki, who appeared on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics program, said the country was better off before APC took over in 2015.
The DPP leader accused the APC-led administration of lying to Nigerians and bringing the country to a disastrous end.
He also defended Atiku for calling on Northerners to vote for the PDP in 2023, adding that the party would transform the country if Nigerians entrusted it with power.

Pedro-Obaseki said: “What is happening is a reflection of the absolute ineptitude of the ruling party. The fact is Nigerians were fooled in 2015 and here we are. We all know that APC packed a bandit of lies.
“Nigeria is now on the brink. It’s different than it used to be before APC came to power. They shouted for change but they have brought Nigeria to a bad level.
“What this nation needs is simple. We know where we were as of 2015. Atiku fought until 1999 to achieve democracy, a new change. Nigeria before the Obasanjo-Atiku government was in debt. When they left office, our debt was almost zero.”
