Buhari

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on Monday, chided President Muhammdu Buhari for resorting to false poll sweep claims on the December 5 bye-elections, describing it as another desperate measure to divert public attention from its manifest failures. 

The party also mocked the President for assuming the role of an emergency spokesman of the party in a bid to launder the image of the dying party, saying by this, he had become a lame duck President, having abdicated his presidential responsibilities of securing the nation and managing the economy to issuing press statements for APC and struggling for media space, as spokesperson and image launderer of the party.

“Perhaps Mr. President’s handlers ought to have informed him that out of the six senatorial bye-elections, the PDP freely swept three in  free, fair and credible contests, while the APC only muscle the other three in polls that were marred by manifest irregularities and rigging,” the party, said in a statement by its spokesman, Kola Ologbodiyan.

It countered that the PDP was actually in clear lead in Zamfara where the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC’s) returning officer, Prof. Ibrahim Magatawa, openly betrayed the plot between the commission and APC to allocate votes for the ruling party and rig the Bakura State Constituency bye-election.

The statement, added: “The shameful enterprise witnessed in Zamfara only goes to further confirm how the APC rigged isolated bye-elections in Katsina, Kogi, Borno and Lagos where INEC officers were used to allocate fictitious figures away from the genuine ballots cast, which placed the PDP in clear lead.

“Such resort to rigging by the APC only confirmed its heightened unpopularity given the failures of its administrations both at federal and state levels, including wrecking our economy and pampering terrorists, bandits and kidnappers who are ravaging our communities and murdering our compatriots in the most vicious manner. 

“Indeed, no well-meaning Nigerian can truly support such a corrupt party and incompetent government that have not only failed but has also roundly betrayed our nation, looted our treasury, destroyed our pride as a country and brought so much hardship and suffering to the people in a space of five years.

“It is indeed appalling that at a time Nigerians expect Mr. President to frontally tackle the escalated insecurity under his incompetent watch, particularly in dealing with the recent massacre in Borno state, he is more interested in praise singing of a party that has been rejected by Nigerians.

“Such dereliction of duty is a direct spat on the victims of mindless killings in our country and an insult on the generality of suffering Nigerians. 

“As a party, the PDP asserts that since Mr. President has demonstrated his preference for party politics above governance, he should take a crash course on party spokesmanship, relocate to the APC national secretariat to join Alhaji Mai Bala Buni and leave governance for more capable and competent hands to pilot the affairs of our nation.”
