The Edo State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has countered claims by Governor Godwin Obaseki that Nigeria is in a financial mess under the Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government.
The APC caretaker committee chairman in Edo, Col. David Imuse (rtd) in a statement on Monday through the assistant secretary of the committee, Ofure Osheobo submitted that Edo is not faring any better under the leadership of Obaseki as Governor.
The statement released in Benin, the state capital said Obaseki criticizing the federal government is a “classic case of the pot calling the kettle black.
It will be recalled that Obaseki said that the federal government printed N60 billion as part of federal allocation for March.
Speaking at the Edo state transition committee stakeholders engagement on Thursday, the governor said Nigeria is in huge financial trouble.
He added that the economy is no longer what it used to be due to the rising debt profile as dependence on crude oil is no longer sustainable.
