The Pan Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF) criticised the 61st Independence Day speech by President
The pan-Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere, stated that the President’s speech showcases the dishonesty of those governing the country and the disconnection between them and the people they manage.
National Publicity Secretary of PANDEF, Ken Robinson, in a statement yesterday in Port Harcourt, described the speech as the worst Independence Day speech in Nigeria’s
“There is something wrong with the president’s speechwriters and handlers. It was indifferent to the situation of the country; the growing disaffections, dissensions and disillusions, due to the inactions of the government. Rather, it’s full of hallucinations and wishful thinking, perhaps, based on what might be pleasing to the President, and not the citizens”.
