Nigerians slam Joe Igbokwe for tagging Buhari’s critics as liars from hell

The spokesperson of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State, Joe Igbokwe, has incurred the wrath of Nigerians on social media for describing the critics of President Muhammadu Buhari as ‘liars from hell.’

Igbokwe made the comment when he featured on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Monday.

He said:

“The PDP was there for 16 years and we didn’t see anything. In the midst of plenty, I cannot lay my hands on anything,” he said.

“Support your leader, don’t be a distraction. Anybody who tells you Buhari is not doing well is a liar from the pit of hell, given where we are coming from.”

Although Igbokwe admitted the nation is faced with myriads of challenges, he, however, said they cannot be fixed in a single day.

“If the president can solve all the problems of Nigeria in one day, they would have done it in the 60s. It’s a continuum,” he said.

“As the population is growing, the problem will continue to grow. As Nigeria is growing, the problem will continue to grow. So problems will never disappear from the face of the earth.”

But Ken Olugbo, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who was also on the programme, tackled Igbokwe over Buhari’s performance in office.

Okolugbo said the current administration has not fared well in its cardinal promises, lamenting the economic situation.

I can’t condemn entirely everything that President Muhammadu Buhari has done. I have said it and I have tried to always be objective,” he said.

“But Igbokwe must admit that we are hungry. Nigerians are hungry. The economy is bad. We need to move to a next level (of economic prosperity).”

Olugbo compared previous PDP administrations with the APC government and admitted that his party made some mistakes.

He said despite that, the PDP performed better in office than the current administration.

Igbokwe’s comment on the show has attracted criticisms from Nigerians on social media who described him as an agent of government who is only protecting his means of livelihood.
