The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has reacted to President Muhammadu Buhari’s 61st Independence speech saying, his confession that Nigerians are going through adversities much like the circumstances of the 1967 civil struggle below his administration has vindicated the social gathering.
The opposition social gathering introduced that President Buhari’s authorities is incompetent, confused and the worst within the historical past of the nation.
In a press release issued by the National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbodiyan on Friday, PDP maintained that the truth that President Buhari in contrast the challenges and sufferings being confronted by Nigerians below his administration to the agony of the civil struggle, underscores the horrible scenario within the nation at this time.
“In President Buhari’s phrases, “The past 18 months have been some of the most difficult periods in the history of Nigeria. Since the civil war, I doubt whether we have seen a period of more heightened challenges than what we have witnessed in this period.”
“This grave assertion brings to mind the ugly images of the Civil war; the killings, lawlessness, violence, human rights violations, poverty, hunger, starvation and other horrible situations as also being currently witnessed today under the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led administration,” the PDP said.
”From Mr. President’s admission, it’s clear that he has no one however himself guilty for the sorry scenario in Nigeria below his watch
”It is, due to this fact, a pathetic antithesis for Mr. President to try to exonerate himself by claiming that no authorities, since 1999, has performed what his administration has performed in six years; a declare that portrays desperation to parry blame for the results of the misrule of his administration.
”Rather, what obtains within the public house is that no authorities has since 1999 introduced our nation to her knees on each aspect of life just like the Buhari administration.
”It is appalling that in his speech, President Buhari had no concrete assurance on tips on how to revamp our economic system and tips on how to finish acts of terrorism in our nation. Instead, the speech, as typical, dwelt on empty claims that haven’t any bearing on the precise scenario within the nation.
”Such disposition additional exposes the insensitivity of the APC in direction of the plight of hundreds of thousands of Nigerians and confirms that our nation will finish in ruins if the APC is allowed to remain in energy any second past May 29, 2023,” the PDP mentioned.
