Following the commissioning of the Nigeria Rice Paddy Pyramids, at the Abuja International Trade Fair Complex by President Muhammadu Buhari, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has reportedly mocked the All Progressives Congress, APC, for staging shameless media stunt with the unveiling of rice pyramids, terming it “pyramids of lies”.
This was reportedly disclosed in a statement signed by the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Debo Ologunagba.
According to the statement, “There is nothing to celebrate in the APC pyramid of lies in Abuja. It is rather shameful that APC leaders are again ridiculing President Muhammadu Buhari by making him unveil pyramids of allegedly imported foreign rice which are re-bagged as locally produced, just to create an impression of a boost in local production under his watch.”
It added that, “It is on record that the PDP turned the waterland of various states of our nation into huge rice production hubs with farms and mills springing up across the country, leading to a boost in local production, drastic drop in imports and the celebrated affordable prices of food products under the PDP administration.”
It maintained that, “The APC pyramids of lies are therefore nothing but huge signposts of their failures and irredeemable proclivity for lies, deception, beguilement and fake performance claims even in the face of unbearable high costs of food, 22.95 per cent food inflation rate and our nation’s ranking as 98th out of 107 in Global Hunger Index.”
It remarked that, “It is clear that with the 2023 elections in sight, the APC is desperate in pushing its stock-in-trade, pyramid of lies, propaganda, deceit and bogus claims with which they stole power in 2015.”
