PDP to President Buhari: You have failed in governance

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has stated that President Muhammadu Buhari has failed in governance.

According to the opposition party, the president and his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), have failed to deliver on their campaign promises of providing security, fighting corruption and ensuring economic development.

This comment was made by the main opposition party, PDP in reaction against the backdrop of the comment credited to Buhari on insecurity.

Recall that the national security adviser (NSA), Babagana Monguno who briefed state house correspondents after a meeting with the president on Thursday, said Buhari had asked security chiefs to improve on efforts in the fight against insecurity, adding that he is not prepared to leave office as a failure.

Reacting to the comment on Friday, Kola Ologbondiyan, national publicity secretary of the PDP, said the statement by Buhari is “medicine after death”.

“The party asserts that President Buhari’s veiled admission of failure, which smacks as a tactic to exonerate the APC, is an exercise in futility as the APC, which now only exists on paper, will soon fizzle from our political firmament, having shown itself as perverted platform that cannot be entrusted with
governance at any level in our country,” Ologbondiyan said in a statement.

“President Buhari and his APC have failed in their three-pronged promises of security, anti-corruption and economic development. They have instead wrecked all sectors of our nation life with no hope insight.

“What explanation can the Buhari Presidency and the APC offer for failing to decisively tackle terrorists, insurgents and bandits, who are daily ravaging our communities, killing and maiming our compatriots in various states across the country, despite the huge resources at their disposal?

“How do President Buhari and APC leaders sleep at night when they know that due to their incompetence and compromises, hundreds of Nigerians, including school children, are languishing in kidnappers’ den at the mercies of their assailants and these elements?

“President Buhari has so failed as a Commander-in-Chief that non-state actors have taken over, with regions now resorting to their own security outfits while state governors, including his home, Katsina state governor, Aminu Bello Masari, telling helpless victims of terror attacks to defend themselves.

“On the economy front, President Buhari has only succeeded in ruining the once robust economy handed over to him by the PDP administration in 2015 and turned Nigeria into the poverty capital of the world, where over 82.9 million once thriving Nigerians can no longer afford their daily meals and other necessities of life.

“Rather than fighting corruption, the APC-led Buhari administration has become the citadel of corruption where over N15 trillion has reportedly been stolen by APC leaders from various agencies under the cover of government.”

The opposition party asked Buhari and APC “to end their media orchestrations, apologise for their failure and allow Nigerians to chart a fresh course as they rally with the PDP to salvage our dear nation”.
