The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was on Sunday, 29 of November scolded President Muhammadu Buhari described him as a “lame-duck” following the rate in which the insecurity is growing on daily basis in the country.
“Three years to the 2023 general election, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has turned President Muhammadu Buhari into a lame duck,” the PDP has said.
The party said that the APC succeeded in doing so “given the manifest failure of Buhari’s administration in all sectors of national life.”
This was contained in a statement issued by the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan.
The statement reads, “The PDP says the frenzy by the APC to commence the 2023 election campaign, just a year into President Buhari’s second tenure of four years in office; further confirms that APC leaders are now looking beyond its current structure and government; having realized that the next three years under the Buhari-led APC administration would be a waste.”
The opposition party alleged that the underground moves by APC leaders to disown the Buhari administration, given its failures; “the conversation about possible change of their party’s name; as well as the plot to destabilize the PDP, are signs of desperation to hold on to power despite APC’s failures; and explicit rejection by Nigerians.”
“Our party and indeed discerning Nigerians have seen through the rambling of the APC, which is merely raising dusts to foul the political firmament in a bid to cover for its lack of internal cohesion; failure in governance and reneging on the promises they made to Nigerians in other to have access to power”
“The attitude and character of the APC have manifestly shown that it is mortally afraid to stand election in 2023, given that Nigerians have seen through their antics; and are determined not to have anything to do with such a deceitful; beguiling; divisive; and incompetent party in future elections”
“APC has shown that it is a party without conscience; the reason it has failed, in the last five years; to bring together a Board of Trustees that ought to serve as the custodian of its supposed ideals and principles”
“It is therefore not surprising that under five years, the APC has remained inchoate; uncoordinated; rudderless and totally unable to operate a steady and stable national leadership; a situation that shows why their administration is plagued with confusion; infighting; widespread corruption and collapse of central. command structure of governance.”
