Politics PDP Begins Nationwide Performance Tour in Jigawa



✅ NEW - car park, swimming pool, 24 hours light/security and more.
The Publicity Directorate of the Peoples Democratic Party,PDP on Monday began a comprehensive nationwide performance tour to publicise projects executed by its elected and appointed officials at all levels of government.

The tour is expected to publicise all projects executed in all sectors of the economy since the PDP assumed power in 1999.

Mr Olisa Metuh, PDP National Publicity Secretary, had earlier at a news conference, said the projects would include those executed in the various constituencies.

He added that it would also include interventions, using special bodies such as NDDC, PTDF, CBN and SURE-P.

The tour, he said, would entail a comprehensive sector-by-sector appraisal of the performance in all nooks and crannies of the country and the successes recorded in transforming the lives of citizens.

He said the tour, which was not a campaign, was different from the Good Governance Tour recently organised by the Ministry of Information.

He said it was so because its focus would be on projects executed by PDP elected or appointed officials, adding that it would also focus on Federal Government and state governors` projects nationwide.

According to him, there is no state, local government or ward in the country that had not been positively affected by projects executed by PDP governments at all levels.

Such projects, he said, abound in non-PDP states and many Nigerians erroneously gave credit to the opposition.

He said this was in addition to constituency projects by federal and state lawmakers, which were mobilised by the PDP-led Federal Government.

He said that the opposition party in former PDP controlled states, now claimed such projects, adding that the tour would address this and return the credit to the party.

Metuh added that the rapid growth in the private sector was due to the PDP-led Federal Government's well articulated reform policies and programmes in key sectors of the economy''.
