The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has advised the All Progressives Congress (APC) led Federal Government to declare “emergency” on the economy.

The PDP National Publicity Secretary, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, made the call in a statement in Abuja on Tuesday.

Adeyeye also advised government to invite competent hands to manage and revive the country’s economy.

He, however, said that PDP had been vindicated of its positions following the acceptance of responsibility regarding the economic misfortune caused by the APC.

He said Gov. Rochas Okorocha of Imo, who spoke with newsmen after APC governors meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday accepted the responsibility.

Adeyeye quoted Okorocha as saying “We must take responsibility and we must never shift the responsibility to anybody. We are responsible for everything happening in Nigeria.

“The good, the bad, the ugly but we are promising Nigerians that we shall fix it”.

The PDP spokesman said that the declaration came after several months of buck-passing to previous PDP administration.

He called on the APC to also accept other responsibilities as well correct the impression that previous PDP administration achieved nothing in the economy, infrastructure and policies in 16 years.

“For the umpteenth time, let us reiterate that the PDP’s achievements cannot be wished away.

“We, therefore, appreciate the APC’s acceptance.

“We urge them to accept all other responsibilities for all the wrongs they have plunged the country into and equally apologise for their serial lies.’’
