Okechukwu said that had the People’s democratic Party (PDP) constructed the $23 billion, 3 Greenfield Refineries, which they awarded to the Chinese on May 13, 2010, the Buhari administration won’t be borrowing to import refined petroleum products today. They should refund us siphoned public finance (funds).”
At the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) convention, which was held on Saturday, Ekweremadu scored the All Progressives Congress-led administration low on security, economy, job creation, and national unity.
He described the 16 years leadership of the PDP as ‘glorious’ years for the country, noting that ‘good men and women’ who left PDP for the APC are eager to return to join and build a better Nigeria.
Okechukwu said that he was particularly surprised that Ekweremadu had the effrontery to query President Muhammadu Buhari for borrowing interest-free Suku N100 billion loan to fix the Enugu-Onitsha highway and similar projects across the federation,
“Our debt profile is rising because of the profligacy of my brother, Ike Ekweremadu and his Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) co-travellers, who squandered our patrimony raked during the oil boom era,” Okechukwu said.
