Buhari knows he has failed, says PDP

…tasks Presidency, APC on debate

By Valentine Amanze

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress (APC) administration has “irredeemably failed in every sector of our national life.”

  The opposition party gave the verdict through its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan.

  The PDP disclosed that available data, both locally and internationally, confirmed that the Buhari administration failed woefully in all its promises and claims, particularly on the fight against corruption, economy, security, democracy as well as national unity and cohesion.

  It alleged that the Buhari administration’s claimed fight against corruption had been exposed to be a big lie; a charade designed to hound perceived political opponents while providing cover for humongous corruption and pillaging of resources by agents of the Buhari Presidency.

   The PDP also described the Buhari-led administration as a felonious empire of corrupt individuals, certificate forgers, contract inflators, looters of treasuries and well-known liars, making it, ‘head to toe’, the biggest assemblage of plunderers in the history of Nigeria.

  It also doubted the integrity of Buhari as a leader.

  “We ask, if, Mr. President is indeed a man of integrity, as his handlers want the world to believe, why is he comfortable employing, embracing, surrounding himself with and offering protection to corrupt persons, certificate forgers and liars as ministers, advisers and political associates?

  “Are there things Mr. President benefits or has in common with such individuals that attract them to him or for which they enjoy his cover to steal public funds in parastatals, agencies and ministries, particularly those under the direct supervision of the President?” it stated.

  The opposition party further alleged that the incompetence and corruption of the Buhari Presidency, wreaked the nation’s once robust economy, resulting in hardship, unemployment, hunger and starvation, strange sicknesses and depression with compatriots resorting to suicide missions and slavery as options.

  “Under President Buhari, our nation has become dangerously divided. Violent clashes and bloodletting have become the order of the day. Rights of citizens are daily violated; democratic institutions, including the courts and the National Assembly have come under attack; elections are rigged with impunity; the unity of our beloved country is now under Stress,” the PDP stated.

  It also said that the Buhari administration has no major development project it initiated, executed and completed in the last three years, in any part of the country.

  The PDP disclosed that it would soon commence a series to expose the lies and failures of The Buhari-administration as well as the huge liability, woes and dangers it has brought on the nation.

 The PDP also challenged both the Presidency and the APC to an open debate on governance, “further expose the failures of the  APC and Buhari Presidency to Nigerians.”
