PDP replies Presidency, says Buhari ill-equipped for governance

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has responded to the attack launched at it by the Presidency on Thursday, where it suggested that the main opposition party was the greatest obstacle to Nigeria’s development, with the PDP saying now that President Muhammadu Buhari was ill-equipped for governance.

In a statement issued in Abuja on Friday by Kola Ologbondiyan, its National Publicity Secretary, the PDP noted that the vituperation by the presidency “in desperate defence of the fizzling All Progressives Congress (APC)” was a further confirmation that the APC has become comatose.

It said the presidency response to an earlier statement by the PDP further showed that President Buhari has abandoned governance “to engage in threnody for his dysfunctional APC.”

The PDP added: “Our party also notes that a reading of the reaction from the Presidency further strengthens the fact that the Buhari’s administration has become uncoordinated and ill-equipped for governance.

“The statement also portrays a Presidency lacking in confidence that its party, the APC, can still perform its roles.

“The Buhari Presidency ought to have known that it is too late in the day for concealments or gagging of Nigerians as its failures, incompetence and lack of confidence in itself and the APC are manifest at all turns.

“Moreover, the Presidency should know that the PDP, as a party that resonates with Nigerians and on which our democracy and national cohesion is anchored, has a solemn duty to hold President Buhari and his APC accountable for their misrule which has brought untold poverty, hunger, violence, bloodletting and division in the land.

“In doing this, the PDP charges Mr. President to explain how he and his party wrecked our economy from one of the fastest growing in the world to a shameful world poverty capital in a space of four years and brought so much hopelessness that compatriots now resort to suicide, infanticide, human trafficking and slavery mission abroad for survival. The answer is incompetence and dishonesty!
