Press statement from the ….

The Peoples Democratic Party () insists that contrary to claims by the Presidency, the $2.1 billion Liquefied Natural Gas () component of the bailout for states was actually saved by the immediate past President Jonathan-led administration.

The party said in actual fact the dividend stood at $5.6 billion even before the handover date of May 29th and would have been shared but for the insistence of former that it be left for the incoming administration to manage.

PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh in statement on Wednesday thanked for making it possible for Nigerians to know that monies were left behind by the Goodluck Jonathan administration.

The party said despite attempts by the -led administration to hide the truth, the issuance of the bailout with funds from the proceeds and the Excess Crude Account () has exposed the fact that the PDP administration actually left behind huge sums of money, contrary to the impression earlier given to Nigerians and the international community that the new administration met a virtually empty treasury.

“It is gratifying to note that gradually the evidence of monies left behind by the PDP-led administration is coming to public light despite effort by the new government to hide the facts.

The public had been made aware that $2 billion was left in the for which the Accountant –General and the confirmed approvals for the withdrawal of $1.7 billion.

“We know that surely, though slowly, a lot of other monies saved by the PDP and which are now under the control of the government will eventually be unveiled by this administration themselves and without any effort on our part whatsoever.

The PDP says it believes that must have realized that he was earlier misdirected on the actual state of the nation’s finances and should as a respected statesman apologize to his predecessor, who also ensured that he handed over to him a peaceful and stable environment to operate.

The party said “ as a leader on whose shoulders lies the mandate of the Nigerian people and the burden of governance for the next four years should strive to disentangle himself from the intrigues, propaganda, blackmail and machinations of some leaders in his party and focus on delivering on his campaign promises for which he was elected.”

The PDP also urged the APC as a party in power to rise above board and endeavor to be honest in its dealings, especially if it wants Nigerians to take it seriously. It said a situation where a ruling party will resort to a dishonorable act of altering a statement where it earlier acknowledged the approval for the withdrawal from the , just to hide the truth, leaves much to be desired.

Finally, we want the public to note that all our statements and engagements have been based on facts and issues. Consequently, we urge the Presidency to focus on issues and stop trending on personal insults, threats and abuses.
