May 29: Buhari, APC, Overburdened By Guilt – PDP

Date:

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said that President Muhammadu Buhari’s failure to address Nigerians at the presidential inauguration showed that the President and his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), are overburdened by the guilt of the “rigged” presidential election.

The party said such also showed President Buhari’s insensitivity and the level of derision with which his handlers and party hold Nigerians, “perhaps, given that the presidential mandate they parade did not emanate from the people”

In a statement Wednesday by the spokesman for the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan,  the party held that the failure by President Buhari and the APC to make any commitment at the ceremony reinforced the truism that a product of flawed electoral process cannot serve the people or meet their aspirations under a constitutional democracy.

The statement said, “The poor attendance and passivity of the audience at the ceremony at a time that Nigerians were trooping, in their millions, to the inauguration of state governors elected on the platform of the PDP, manifestly show.

“It is indeed pathetic that at a ceremony such as presidential inauguration, where truly elected leaders address their people, make commitments and unfold their governance direction, President Buhari did not showcase his plans or commitment to the development of critical sectors of our polity.

“It also speaks volumes that President Buhari had nothing to say to the victims of mindless killings and acts of violence in various parts of our country.

“Moreover, he had no directions toward stemming the economic distress under his administration, for which Nigerians are now resorting to suicide and slavery mission abroad as options”.

The PDP observed that in failing to address Nigerians, President Buhari turned the inauguration to a parody.

The main opposition party, however, urged Nigerians to take solace in their determination to retrieve “our stolen presidential mandate” at the tribunal.
