APC Yet To Seek Our Advice On Tackling Insurgency – PDP

The  Peoples  Democratic  Party (PDP)  on  Monday said the ruling  All  Progressives Congress (APC) has not sought its advice on how to effectively tackle the issue of insurgency in the country, especially  the  Boko Haram menace.
Its National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa  Metuh said while the party will not constitute itself a distraction to the policy the APC- controlled have  on tackling insurgency, it is ready to offer private advice to the party on how best to effectively  wage the war if the need arise.

“Yoruba have a saying that ‘ if someone promises to give another man a cloth, we first look at the clothes that he is wearing’. What advice do they have? They want to be in the opposition but they are so amateurish in their approach”. 
“They obviously do not understand that It is not the amount of what you say as an opposition that matters but the credibility of it. If they know they have any advice to give, let them go and publish it in the newspapers. After all, they publish
