The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) charges President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) to respect the office of the President and stop irritating Nigerians with false performance claims.
The PDP describes as embarrassing, the resort by the Buhari administration to media hyping of non-existent projects and programs in the face of manifest stagnation and failure in all sectors of national life.
According to a press statement signed by PDP National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kolapo Ologbondiya, “Is it not strange that with the near total collapse of infrastructure, deteriorated economy, skyrocketing inflation, high cost of food, inexcusable high mortality rate, an abysmally low purchasing power, high spate of insecurity and a lack of direction in the country, President Buhari is busy parading non-existent projects as achievements?
“We challenge President Buhari to break the circle of his administration’s fairy-tale by leaving the comfort of Aso Rock and commence an infrastructural tour of the nation, by road, and see whether he can locate the projects he had been made to hype on paper as achievements.
“After the trip, President Buhari would know why he and his administration have become a butt of joke among Nigerians and why his administration has gone down in history as the worst in our nation.
“Of course, if there were such projects as claimed by the Buhari Presidency, Nigerians would not need any media hype to see them.
“The resort to media hysteria and defacing of our streets with banners of fictitious projects is because they do not exist on the ground.
“Our party urges President Buhari not to allow his handlers to continue to ridicule him but use the opportunity of such ceremonies to apologize to Nigerians for his failures as well as the agony he has plunged them into in the last six years”, the statement said.
