The People’s Democratic Party, PDP in a statement. Signed Thursday September 10 in Abuja by its National Publicity Secretary, K. Ologbondiyan, condemned ministers under the current administration headed by President Muhammadu Buhari for celebrating failure.
The PDP claimed it was alarmed by the latest order to ”Go on offensive” against Nigerians in projecting their achievements.
A statement entitled ‘Ministerial Retreat:. PDP raises alarm over the ‘Go On The Offensive’ Order of Buhari,’ PDP expressed its concern.
The statement reads;. “The PDP is alarmed by President Muhammadu Buhari’s directive to officials of his administration. To ‘go on the offensive’ against Nigerians, who are patriotically crying out under the burden of economic hardship. Foisted on them by his insensitive, clueless, deceptive and extremely corrupt administration.
“The PDP asserts that such a directive in a ministerial retreat which ought to be a problem-solving forum is symptomatic of an administration that has become overwhelmed by the reality of its own failures and now seeking desperate measures to suppress the voice of the people.
“Our Party declares that such anti-people stance amounts to a huge betrayal by Mr. President, who, before his elections, promised Nigerians an Eldorado, only to now turn around to label their cries and demands for good governance, security and basic necessities of life, particularly at the time they are agitating for reduction in the cost of fuel and electricity, as “irresponsible and politically motivated.”
