Former Deputy National Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Bode George has said that it is not yet time to criticise the All Progressive Congress-led Federal Government, adding that his party is in crisis and they are trying to rebuild it.
Speaking in an interview with PUNCH‘s correspondent on Thursday, George said that he has no comment on the new price regime for petrol announced by the Federal Government on Wednesday.
“No comment. No comment for now. It is not yet time to criticise President Muhammadu Buhari or the All Progressives Congress because we in the PDP are in a crisis and we are trying to rebuild our own house.
We have to remove the speck in our own eyes before we can see the one in the eyes of the others. The APC and the President have asked for time to deliver on their campaign promises and we are watching. For now, whether it is fuel price hike or other government policies, I will say no comment.
We are busy holding meetings in order to rebuild the PDP and it would be unnecessary to make any comment yet. As I speak to you, I am in the middle of a meeting; our party is trying to resolve its crisis.
The next general election is still very far away. It is three years away from here. In the fourth year of this government, when elections are around the corner, this present government would have almost finished its tenure. It is then we can roll out our plans and be able to make a good critique of the Buhari government,” he said.
