PEOPLES Democratic Party (PDP) Monday accused the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN)-controlled states of misusing their share of the fuel subsidy fund.
It also declared that the ACN was trying to politicise the Subsidy Re-Investment Programme (SURE-P) initiative of the PDP-led Federal Government.
PDP’s National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, while reacting to claims by the ACN that the SURE-P fund was being shared to PDP members, noted that the claim was part of a grand plot by the opposition to unnecessarily stir up animosity among the people and ensure that they do not benefit from government programmes.
Metuh’s statement read in part:
“The attention of the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has been drawn to malicious and baseless media reports by the opposition Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) that the Subsidy Re-Investment Programme (SURE-P) fund is being shared to PDP members.
“To say the least, we found it nauseating that the opposition would want to play politics with everything including a programme meant for the benefit of all Nigerians. We are aware that this is part of a grand plot by the ACN to stir up animosity among peace-loving Nigerians and prevent them from benefiting from the programme.”
