The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) admonishes President Muhammadu Buhari
to stop living in denial, self-praise and making jokes out of the
deteriorated security situation in our country under his administration.
In a statement signed by Kola Ologbondiyan, “The party berates President
Buhari for attempting to award himself an unearned pass mark despite his
abysmal failure to tackle acts of terrorism and violence, which have
continued to worsen under his incompetent watch.
“By resorting to self-praise, in the face of failure and escalated
killings, President Buhari has exhibited a devastating betrayal of the
fundamental responsibilities of his office and this further confirms
that he is indeed not in touch with the reality on ground and as such
has no solutions to offer.
“It is indeed inexcusable that instead of accepting failure, Mr.
President, who recently confessed his surprise over the level of
insecurity in our nation under his watch, is now resorting to
self-praise spurred by his handlers to divert attention from the
consensus by Nigerians and members of the international community that
he had failed as Commander-in-Chief.
“The PDP described as scandalous and self indicting that President
Buhari is claiming that his so-called “successes” have restored the
pride and honour of our nation, at the same time our country is becoming
a pariah nation; listed as number three in world terrorism index while
facing immigration bans and travel advisories from other nations of the
“It is awkward that President Buhari made his unsupported claims at the
time both the Senate and the House of Representatives as well as other
credible organizations in Nigeria are also in unanimity in indicting his
Presidency for failing to take steps to check acts of terrorism,
banditry and violence in the country.
“Furthermore, while Mr. President and his All Progressives Congress
(APC) are busy with their failed publicity stunt on false performance
claims, various sections of our nation are passing a vote of no
confidence in their administration, by setting up various security
outfits such as Amotekun in the South West and Shege Ka Fasa in the
north, to protect their territories.
“The fact is that by resorting to self-praise in the face of failure,
the Buhari Presidency has laid down its armour. No one is now left in
doubt that the Buhari administration has reached the end of its capacity
and should heed the call by Nigerians to take the exit door and allow
more competent, patriotic and proactive hands to effectively tackle the
situation at hand.”
