PDP Blast President Muhammadu buhari New Year Address, Say Country is Leaderless
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has blasted President Muhammadu buhari and his APC led government over the president New Year National address.
The PDP in a press statement describes the President’s speech as directionless and empty. The formal ruling party has also called on Nigerians to come together to salvage the country.
The People Democratic Party Also said in its statement that the country had truly become leaderless. According to the PDP, President Muhammadu buhari’s speech underscores the urgent need for Nigerians to come together and salvage the country which is fast heading to a failed state.
The PDP said the president’s speech was filled with lame excuses, empty promises which add nothing to the national growth in the face of growing insecurity in the country.
“The myriads of lame excuses in Mr. President’s address again underlines our national misfortune of a weak leadership that is unable to resolutely confront and vanquish bandits, terrorists, kidnappers and vandals who are now holding our nation hostage, ravaging our communities, kidnapping and beheading our compatriots without restrain.”
“The least Nigerians expected from Mr. President, in the New Year, was a decisive will to tackle our security challenges by reviewing his parade and heeding the demands by Nigerians to rejig our nation’s security architecture.”
The People Democratic Party (PDP) also said the situation in the country deserved more than an armchair commander-in-Chief.
“On the economy, Mr. President failed to articulate a definite economic recovery blueprint. He had no clear strategies to shore up the value of our naira, repay and end our foreign borrowings, revamp our external reserves, give hope to foreign investors, move promises of job creation from the perpetual drawing board, and guarantee food security, health care among others”
The PDP further said the present administration still has the opportunity to redeem itself by addressing the issue of high food cost, education, pressure on business, high fuel cost, and other challenges bedeviling the country.
