The People’s Democratic Party(PDP) has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of abandoning Nigerians to their fate and channelling his energy on his own personal interest and comfort.
The opposition party said in a statement on Sunday that the people are suffering, following the “lack of attention to critical sectors of the economy and national life” by the president.
The statement reads in part: “The PDP says such unpatriotic and self-centred acts, which is a direct slap on the sensitivity of the citizens, are only associated with leaders who do not have the mandate of the people but found themselves in office as beneficiaries of manipulated elections.
“That is why at the time Nigerians expect urgent interventions on critical issues of national insecurity and uncertainties; kidnapping and bloodletting; high costs of food and essential services; lack of affordable healthcare, decayed infrastructure and excruciating poverty in the land, President Buhari and his handlers are more interested in appointing housekeepers and managers of social events that have only to do with him.
“The PDP invites Nigerians to note that this development and the general lethargy in governance is a weighty effect of the validity challenge that confronts governance in our nation today, following the rigging of the 2019 Presidential election.
“Moreover, such unseriousness further amplifies the insensitivity and incompetence of the Buhari Presidency as well as signposts the deplorable situation that might further befall the nation under the APC.”
