The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Sunday declared that “President Muhammadu Buhari knows that he has failed.”
PDP said the Buhari-led administration had “irredeemably failed in every sector of our national life.”
The opposition party noted that available data, both “locally and internationally, confirm that the Buhari administration has failed woefully in all its
promises and claims, particularly on fight against corruption, economy, security, democracy as well as national unity and cohesion.”
A statement by PDP’s spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan said it had observed 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 statement said, “Instead of fighting corruption, this administration is practically 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 our nation.
“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 an 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?
“Largely, due to the incompetence and corruption of the Buhari Presidency, our once robust economy has been wrecked, resulting in unbearable hardship, unemployment, hunger, and starvation, strange
sicknesses and untold 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.
“Moreover, the Buhari administration cannot boast of any major development project it has initiated, executed and completed in the last three years, in any part of the country.
“If anything, Mr. President has been going around the country shopping for projects executed by other persons, including PDP governors, to commission.”
PDP said it was ready to commence a series to expose the “lies and failures of this administration as well as the huge liability, woes and dangers it has brought on our nation.”
The opposition party also challenged both the “Presidency and the APC to an open debate on governance, where we will further expose the failures of the APC and Buhari Presidency to Nigerians. The time has finally come!”
