The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of pretence and deceit in his reaction to the postponement of elections.
Secondus said President Buhari’s spirited attempt at extricating himself from the electoral malady merely exposed his administration’s hypocrisy.
The PDP Chairman also noted that conducting a general election is the most important national assignment of any government in four years, adding that for the President and Commander-in-Chief, who is privy to every intelligence report, to try to feign ignorance of the Independent National Electoral Commission’s (INEC) challenges is the height of government insincerity to the people.
In a statement released by his media adviser, Ike Abonyi, Secondus said President Buhari’s attempt to shift blame is not convincing enough to discerning minds.
He said the events leading to the postponement could not have come to both the President and INEC as a surprise, given that the president’s controversial niece, Amina Zakari was the Chairperson of Electoral operations and Logistics Committee, possibly to ensure that the desired agenda was executed.
The PDP leader said Buhari’s blame game is in line with his usual way of being unaware of anything happening around him and wondered what he is aware of.
He advised President Buhari to stop hiding under the cover of being unaware and accept the reality that he has failed woefully in piloting the country’s affairs, a mandate that was lavishly given to him by Nigerians four years ago.
Secondus urged the All Progressives Congress (APC) and INEC to stop “their hide and seek game and admit that what God has sealed can never be thwarted by any human scheming.”
