The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has said that the President Muhammadu Buhari administration has nothing new to offer as far as tackling the lingering security challenges in the country.
The PDP stated this in a statement on Saturday while reacting to Friday’s comments by Presidential Spokesman, Femi Adesina, who was quoted as saying only God has the solution to Nigeria’s security problems.
The statement, titled ‘Wait on God’: Do Your Part, PDP Replies Buhari Presidency, was signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, in Abuja.
The PDP said: “The dismissive statement by the Buhari Presidency that Nigerians should ‘wait on God’ for solutions to the insecurity in our country is a direct admission of failure by President Muhammadu Buhari.
“The statement has shown clearly that the Buhari administration is completely helpless and has come to its wits end in governance; a development, which validates the position of majority of Nigerians that President Buhari is grossly incompetent and should step aside.
“This statement further goes to confirm that the Buhari’s administration has outlived its usefulness, if it had any, and that the promises and assurances made by President Buhari, on the fight against insecurity amount to mere lip service, the PDP further declared”
According to the party, while it believes in the powers and interventions of God, it restates that such comes with the commitment, determination and show of responsibility on the part of those in leadership position; an obligation in which the Buhari Presidency has completely failed.
Mr Ologbondiyan further said, “We, therefore, find it disturbing that while our nation passes through this trying time, officials of the Buhari Presidency are shamelessly alluding to how they sleep in the comfort of their homes “ensconced in the tender bosom” of their “wives and girlfriends.
“This is even more distressing coming from the office of the Commander in Chief, who had failed in his promise to lead the fight against terrorists from the fronts.
“It is however instructive to note that the Buhari Presidency acts as if it is not in sync with the reality of our nation.”
