President Michael Sata has dismissed the National Restoration Party NAREP’s statement that the country is heading in a wrong direction under the PF government.
President Sata says that the statement regarding the performance of the PF in Government by NAREP President, Elias Chipimo is not only exaggerated, but completely disregards the basic realities on the ground.
This is according to a Press Statement issued by President Sata’s Special Assistant for Press and Public Relations, George Chellah made available to Breeze News.
President Sata has challenged Mr. Chipimo to tell the nation if he desires a situation where politicians get away with crimes and corruption, all in the name of tolerance of divergent views.
Mr. Sata has further asked Mr. Chipimo to pinpoint where the PF Government has failed, and provide alternative grounded options rather than spend time in what he has described as a day-dreaming or academic session about what he wishes to happen.
President Sata says that he is cognizant of the fact that opposition political parties are an essential constituent in every democratic system but that they lack respect and sincerity in their engagements with the Government.
President Sata says that lies, deceit, incitement and wayward utterances can only excite the media without providing concrete solutions to the needs of Zambians.
He has advised the opposition to invest in sober and resourceful forms of engagement with the Government stating that his administration stands ready to dialogue with all well-meaning citizens on matters affecting the country.
