Buhari Presidency Abandons Duties, Turns To Monitoring Spirit - PDP

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has reacted to fresh fabrications being sponsored in a section of the media, against its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, saying Muhammadu Buhari Presidency, has abandoned its statutory duties and turned itself into a lying, “monitoring spirit” on Atiku Abubakar and his movements.
PDP, which noted that presidency has not been able to produce any documentary evidence to substantiate its claims, pointed out that the sponsored fabrications, only goes to show that Buhari is intimidated by “our candidate’s resume, his overwhelming popularity and policy direction, which have since amplified his (President Buhari’s) incompetence and lack of direction, as a result of which he is being rejected by the majority of Nigerians.”
PDP, in a statement by its Director, Media & Publicity of its Presidential Campaign Council,
Kola Ologbondiyan, said, “It is indeed despicable that President Buhari will continue to endorse the spinning of lies by his handlers against another Presidential candidate, including its false claims that Atiku Abubakar cannot travel to the United States, which Nigerians have since seen to be mere fabrications.
“Is it not ludicrous that the Buhari Presidency has abandoned its statutory duties and turned itself into a lying, “monitoring spirit” on Atiku Abubakar and his movements, yet it has not been able to produce any documentary evidence to substantiate its claims?”
The party noted that Atiku is a global figure and is not inhibited, in any way whatsoever, from traveling to any part of the world, adding that he’s not prepared to make the sky his office, unlike President Buhari, who unleashed a widely condemned taste for very expensive and wasteful gallivanting with “our national fleet, while Nigerians wallow in abject poverty for neglect and abuse of resources.”
PDP said that it refuses to lose sight of the fact that “our campaign is on the rescue mission and that Nigerians are looking up to our candidate for direction.
“As such, we will not allow the rejected Buhari Presidency to distract us from our focus of repositioning and redirecting our nation to the path of a united, peaceful, secure and prosperous nation where all citizens are happy and free.”
The PDP counseled President Buhari to note that Nigerians have moved ahead with Atiku Abubakar as their next President, adding that he should use the remaining days of his fading administration to prepare answers for his misrule.
“President Buhari should, by now, be providing answers for the over N11 trillion stolen under his watch, particularly in the petroleum sector where he sits as minister; the alleged diversion of funds meant for the purchase of weapons and welfare of our soldiers to finance his re-election campaign as well as the neglect and insensitivity that led to the escalation of killings and bloodletting in various parts of the country under his rule.
“President Buhari should provide answers for his incompetence and harsh economic policies that plunged our economy into recession, leading to high cost of living, loss of over 30 million jobs, acute poverty, hunger, collapse of infrastructure in our country in the last three and half years.
“On our own part, the PDP will continue to focus on issue-based campaign and run with practical answers to the myriad of challenges facing our nation in line with the manifesto of our repositioned party and the policy direction of our Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar,” the party said.
