2019: PDP Challenges Buhari, APC To Debate On Good Governance
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says President Muhammadu Buhari knows that he has failed.
The opposition party noted that available data, both "locally and internationally, confirm that the Buhari administration has failed woefully in all its promises and claims, particularly on fight against corruption, economy, security, democracy as well as national unity and cohesion."
To prove that Buhari has failed, the party has challenged Buhari and the APC to a national debate on good governance.
The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Kola Ologbondiyan, in a statement in Abuja on Sunday said it has observed that Buhari’s claim over fight against corruption had been exposed to be a big lie, describing it as a charade.
PDP stated, ‘’Instead of fighting corruption, this administration is practically a felonious empire of corrupt individuals, certificate forgers, contract infiltrators, looters of treasuries and well-known liars, making it head to toe, the biggest assemblage of plunderers in the history of our nation.
‘’We ask, if, Mr. President is indeed a man of integrity, as his handlers want the world to believe, why is he comfortable employing, embracing, surrounding himself with and offering protection to corrupt persons, certificate forgers and liars as ministers, advisers and political associates?
‘’Are there things Mr. President benefits or has in common with such individuals that attract them to him or for which they enjoy his cover to steal public funds in parastatals, agencies and ministries, particularly those under the direct supervision of the President?’’
PDP claimed that due to the incompetence and corruption of the Buhari Presidency, the nation’s once robust economy had been wrecked, resulting in unbearable hardship, unemployment, hunger and starvation.
The party further claimed that under President Buhari, the nation has become dangerously divided, and violent clashes have become the order of the day, adding that ‘’rights of citizens are daily violated; democratic institutions, including the courts and the National Assembly have come under attack; elections are rigged with impunity; the unity of our beloved country is now under stress.’’
‘’Moreover, the Buhari administration cannot boast of any major development project it has initiated, executed and completed in the last three years, in any part of the country’’, the party further stated.
‘’If anything, Mr. President has been going around the country shopping for projects executed by other persons, including PDP governors, to commission.’’
The PDP said it was ready to commence a series to expose the lies and failures of the administration as well as the huge liability, woes and dangers it had brought on the nation.
