PDP Blasts President Buhari For Saying Those Who Feel They Have Another Country May Choose To Go 3

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) blasted President Muhammadu Buhari for saying Nigerians who feel they have another country may choose to go. A statement he made at the Presidential Villa on Monday, October 22, 2018, when he received the Kwara state All Progressives Congress (APC) candidates for the 2019 general election. Read the report HERE.

According to Femi Adesina, the presidential spokesman, President Muhammadu Buhari made the comment; “We have no other country but Nigeria. Others who feel they have another country may choose to go. We will stay here and salvage it together,”  at the Presidential Villa on Monday, October 22, 2018.

The PDP has described the president’s comment as ‘unfatherly’ and ‘insensitive’ to the plight of Nigerians in a statement signed by the PDP’s National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, on Wednesday, October 24, 2018. The also said Buhari’s comment is a characteristic of his failed leadership and loss of sense of responsibility towards Nigerians. The statement reads:

“The party said President Buhari, in saying that Nigerians, ‘who feel they have another country may choose to go’, has further confirmed that he is completely insensitive to the plight of our citizens and has no solution to the myriad of problems his incompetent and disorganized administration has caused our nation.

“The PDP describes such comment as ‘unfatherly’ and a direct slap on the sensibilities of millions of Nigerians, who have been painfully bearing the economic hardship, hunger and starvation caused by President Buhari’s wasteful and inept administration, to the extent that many have taken to suicide missions and slavery as survival options.

“Such comment is a putrid spit on the graves of thousands of compatriots killed by marauders in various parts of the country, while the Buhari Presidency and dysfunctional All Progressives Congress (APC) remained aloof without decisive actions to end the carnage and bring the perpetrators of the bloodlettings to book.

“Mr. President’s comment is also a mockery on millions of Nigerians who have lost their businesses and whose families have been wrecked by the anti-people policies of the Buhari-led APC administration.”

The PDP said it would have been more advisable for the president to accept responsibility for the failures of his administration and find solutions to ease the burden of his failures on Nigerians instead of dismissing their pains and asking them to abandon the country.
