The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) may have made a fatal mistake as it attempts blackmailing the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) using photos of dilapidated university classrooms where students are seen learning in a crowded classroom where many are sitting on the bare floor.
The photos displayed by a PDP twitter handle different from the official PDP revealed pictures depicting pathetic scene of students struggling to write sitting on the floor while others were standing in the overcrowded classroom.
In the photos posted by PDP2023 with the hashtag @PDP_2023, the party said: “This is a typical learning condition in Nigerian Universities. The President of this country approved N27 Billion for renovation of the NASS complex in frame 4. SHAME.”
But rather than getting support from people, the reactions all pointed accusing finger at the PDP for failing to address the challenges in the university education while the party ruled from 1999 to 2015. It was more of backlash on the party rather than support as it the party expects in the tweet.
One Comrade Kelvin Suka said: “PDP was in power for 16-years and they did nothing about it. Why your fingers pointing @MBuhari. I say is just a political talk am not saying @OfficialAPCNg is doing a good job though.”
Also, BOBAGUNWA @Babajid76571552 said: “Our great party was there for good 16 years, we didn’t remember this to tackle or remind our leaders on poor standard of the schools. abeg oga change.”
