The Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led PDP National Caretaker Committee has said that President Muhammadu Buhari’s performance falls short of expectations.
This was contrary to Buhari’s claim that he had worked hard to meet the expectations of Nigerians.
Buhari in his Easter message said he had worked hard in the areas of security, campaign against corruption and steps taken to revitalise the economy.
A statement yesterday by the Spokesman of the PDP Caretaker Committee, Prince Dayo Adeyeye said Buhari did not give the true picture of his stewardship.
“These comments from Mr President are to say the least untrue and an insult to the intelligence of Nigerians who have been at the receiving end of his government’s mismanagement in the last two years,” he said.
Adeyeye argued that the PDP did not only defeat Boko Haram before it handed over power in 2015, but had also reduced kidnapping and other anti-social vices in the country.
He said the same cannot be said today as kidnapping has taken a new dimention.
“We are also facing another menace of insecurity in the name of Herdsmen attacking and displacing communities across the country. Suicide is also gradually becoming a household name in Nigeria as citizens who cannot cope with the current harsh economic condition have resorted to taking their own lives.
“The war on corruption like other policies and programmes of the Buhari-led APC administration has failed as well. As we have mentioned in our previous statements, any war on corruption that is selective and targeted at humiliating only leaders and other members of the opposition is a total failure.
“The entire anti-corruption war of the APC since inception is just in the media with only one conviction. Many of the cases in courts have been set aside and suspects discharged and acquitted while others are in EFCC and DSS detention centers without trial against their fundamental human rights as enshrined in the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” he said.
