‘Stop Blaming Opposition For Your Failures’- PDP Slams Buhari’s Government

Published

on

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on the Federal Government to stop inventing excuses and blaming the opposition for its mass failures.

The PDP added that the expectation of Nigerians was for the Muhammadu Buhari Presidency to live up to the demands of their offices; instead of blaming the opposition for their self-inflicted woes.

The main opposition party was reacting to comments by the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, where he accused it of doing everything possible to sabotage President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.

The PDP said the minister’s tone betrays the frustration of a failed administration seeking excuses and scapegoats, instead of accepting its failures and self-inflicted woes.

The National Publicity Secretary of PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, in a statement on Wednesday said:

“it is incontrovertible that the PDP as a highly responsible political party, committed to the unity and stability of our dear nation, nurtured our democracy for 16 years and has continued to express its full respect for every arm of government including the judiciary

“It is equally undisputable that the All Progressives Congress (APC), within a period of four years, has wrecked our democratic structures, relegated and harassed judicial officers, disregarded our laws and judicial pronouncements, divided our people and practically brought our nation to its knees only for them to now turn to look for scapegoats where there are none.

“It is instructive to state that, in the course of serving our dear nation for sixteen years, the PDP was never known for intimidating and harassing judicial officers at any level.

“It is, therefore, unfortunate that the Minister of Information and Culture could suddenly recourse to making irresponsible allegations against the PDP and our Presidential candidate instead of accepting their failures.

“As a party we consider it awkward for the APC and its government, under whose only four years tenure, our judiciary has been thoroughly embarrassed, to make frivolous allegations against our party and Presidential candidate.

“It is manifestly clear that the PDP and our Presidential candidate are in court to seek justice and the issues of bias raised by our party are in public domain and in the general interest of majority of Nigerians who gave their Presidential mandate to Atiku Abubakar.

“The fact remains that the APC and its failed government owe it as a responsibility to be accountable to Nigerians; the PDP has a constitutional role to play in this accountability process and our party will not shy away from it.”
