Buhari swimming against tide ―PDP

congresses, pdpTHE Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has observed that President Muhammadu Buhari is swimming against the tide as it believes that Nigerians have already made up their mind to end his administration in next year’s general election.

It has, therefore, advised the president to be prepared to accept defeat after the election.

In a statement issued in Abuja on Monday by Kola Ologbondiyan, its National Publicity Secretary, the party affirmed that indices “including those released by his Presidency, show that Nigerians across board have overtly rejected him for another four years in office.”

The main opposition party added: “Indeed, with the degenerated economic, security and social situations in our nation under his incompetent and anti-people administration, in addition to the spate and weight of direct disapprovals from Nigerians and international bodies, President Buhari knows that he is now swimming against the tide.

“Apart from the acute poverty, hunger and starvation he brought, Nigerians have reached a consensus that President Buhari has betrayed the trust of the ordinary people, particularly in the north, especially with scandalous revelations that he is not indeed pro-poor and uncorrupt as they were made to believe in 2015.

“This is in addition to his disconcerting aloofness to the plight of citizens, his failure to initiate and implement any development project in any party of the country and the refusal to fulfil the littlest of his 2015 campaign promises.

“Today, the electorates have come to terms with the fact that the promises by President Buhari and his APC are all a big scam.

“In fact, our investigations have revealed that President Buhari never intended to fulfil any of his promises. This is because, three years down the line, our President cannot even boast of any clear-cut implementation blueprint on his promises.

“Instead, our dear President and his cronies acquired a life of opulence, going on foreign tastes and swimming in ocean of corruption, while millions of Nigerians who voted him into power are abandoned to languished in poverty and bloodletting occasioned by the APC misrule.

“President Buhari’s handlers, in their shouting match, should know that Nigerians are only clamouring for his expulsion from Aso Rock come 2019 because our nation does not have provisions for mid-term elections. Had such been in our statutes book, Nigerians would have since chased this incompetent, insensitive and tactless President away from office.

“It is a notorious fact that our dear nation and our citizens have not had it this bad since our independence in 1960, leading to the general indignation against the Buhari Presidency.

“Even President Buhari’s aide, Mallam Shehu Garba, has acknowledged that Nigerians across board, including parliamentarians, policemen, customs officials, immigration officials, civil servants and the business community are all clamouring for an end to the Buhari Presidency, come 2019.

“Now that the multitude of artisans, market women, transporters, labourers, small-scale entrepreneurs and professionals, whose businesses have collapsed are teamed with the army of unemployed youths, deprived widows and victims of bloodlettings across our country, in clamouring against President Buhari, who then is left to vote for him in 2019.”

The PDP said the Presidency should therefore not be surprised that “our citizens are now rallying on the platform of the repositioned PDP, a party known for all-inclusiveness and people-oriented policies, to rescue the nation from grips of the Buhari-led APC administration.”
