THE Presidency has accused the opposition APC of dishonesty and playing politics with insurgency and terrorism.
The Presidential Spokesperson, Dr Reuben Abati, made the statement in a reaction to a statement credited to the APC accusing President Goodluck Jonathan of abdicating his responsibility in the fight against terrorism.
“It is very clear that the APC is being dishonest. Its intention is to play politics with insurgency and terrorism.
“I think the question needs to be pointedly asked: `What country does the APC belongs to?
“What country is the APC seeking to preside over?
“As it appears, the APC seems blinded by its own narrow ambition and that is why in recent times, you can find some persons purportedly speaking for the APC making completely illogical and unreasonable statements.
“If you look at the statement by Lai Muhammed, he is accusing the government of abdicating its responsibilities.
“President Jonathan has never at any time abdicated responsibilities.
“He has consistently made it clear that the safety of every Nigerian is important to him, that the security of lives and property is central to all the goals and objectives of this administration,” he said.
