"PDP Caused Us The Pain We Are In Today" - Senator George Akume by GidiParrot: 7:27am On Sep 09
Former Governor of Benue State, Senator George Akume while addressing Zone B APC Women Leaders and their Deputies in Makurdi on Friday, said:


"Don't lose hope in the APC. This party inherited a damaged system that is undergoing structural repairs. Better days will soon be here. PDP Caused us the Pain we are in Today and shouldn't see their party as an option"

Senator Akume was elected governor of Benue State under the platform of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) in 1999. He was again re-elected in 2003 for a second term in office.

He left PDP for ACN and later to the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Was George Akume not a PDP governor during the PDP era? So he now decamps to apc and then turns around to blame pdp? And sadly, zombies(creatures devoid of independent and objective reasoning) would join him to blame pdp.
And anyone who can reason will know that the blame for our present mess rests squarely with buhari. There are many things you can do to cripple your economy. Buhari did them all on assumption of office.
And if at this stage,two years after assuming power,apc is still blaming pdp, then it clearly means they lack the prerequisite knowledge to move the nation forward

And the blame game continues.....
APC, Presidiot Bullharry and all their supporters, in one way or another, have all manifested brain malfunctions many a time.

Here is a man who was a PDP Governor of Benue State for eight years, yet he is accusing PDP, excluding himself, of being behind Nigeria's failed economy under the London Dry Gin's administration.

These Middle Belt people are always sucking Bullharry's craw-craw infested anus, little wonder the core North never take them seriously.

APC will soon implode, let's see who they would delude again.

What were those worldclass capital projects in Benue state that can be attributed to Akume's reign as governor of that state?


Anyone up for the challenge?


Or was federal allocation frozen in his 8yrs as governor?

There is no amount of propaganda, preaching or hate speech against the APC that will make me change my opinion of distrust about the PDP.

Truly the PDP is not and will never be an option for me in the future. If you've given a man 16 years to prove his worth and he failed then, you have tried.

It's only kids who can't read between lines and disgruntled elements who believe that the sorry state of the nation should not be attributed to the actions and inactions of the previous government.
