Following the directives from President Muhammmadu Buhari to the Service Chiefs to curb insecurity so that his administration will not be tagged a failure, the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has told the President that he is already a failure in governance and will leave a failure.
The PDP described the statement by President Buhari that he will not leave office as a failure as “medicine after death” noting that himself and his “corrupt, inept, directionless and anti-people APC” will leave as a failed leader and party.
PDP in a statement on Friday by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan asserted 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.
“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 in sight.
“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.
“Moreover, the Buhari Presidency cannot point to any landmark project it conceptualized, started and completed in the last six years”.
The opposition party said that Buhari has mortgaged the future of the nation with accumulated N33.107 trillion debt with nothing to show and no clear repayment plan.
“More atrocious is that Mr. President is seeking to borrow additional N5.62 trillion, when he knows that he has less than two years in office.
“Rather than fighting corruption, the APC-led Buhari administration has become the citadel of corruption where over N15 trillion naira have reportedly been stolen by APC leaders from various agencies under the cover of government”.
The party said that what is expected of Mr. President and the APC at this point is for them to end their media orchestrations, apologize for their failure and allow Nigerians to chart a fresh course as they rally with the PDP to salvage our dear nation.
