President Muhammadu Buhari has been told by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that he is already a failure in government and would leave a failure, adding that his attempt at political damage control will not help his sputtering All Progressives Congress (APC).
The PDP calls President Buhari’s declaration that he will not leave office as a failure “medicine after death,” saying that he will leave as a failed leader as long as he is a product of the corrupt, ineffective, directionless, and anti-people APC.
The party claims that President Buhari’s veiled admission of failure, which appears to be a ruse to exonerate the APC, is a futile exercise because the APC, which now only exists on paper, will soon vanish from our political landscape, having demonstrated that it is a perverted platform that cannot be trusted with governance at any level in our country.
President Buhari and his APC have failed to deliver on their three-pronged security, anti-corruption, and economic growth pledges.
Instead, they have wreaked havoc on every aspect of our country’s life, leaving no hope in sight.
Despite the vast resources at their disposal, the Buhari Presidency and the APC have failed to decisively combat terrorists, insurgents, and bandits who are ravaging our communities on a daily basis, killing and maiming our compatriots in many states across the country.
How do President Buhari and APC leaders sleep at night knowing that hundreds of Nigerians, including schoolchildren, are suffering in kidnappers’ dens at the mercy of their assailants and the elements because of their incompetence and compromises?
Non-state actors have taken over as President Buhari’s Commander-in-Chief, with areas turning to their own security forces and state governors, including his own, Katsina state governor, Aminu Bello Masari, advising defenceless victims of terror assaults to defend themselves.
On the economic front, President Buhari has only succeeded in ruining the once-strong economy that the PDP administration handed over to him in 2015, turning Nigeria into the world’s poverty capital, with over 82.9 million once-thriving Nigerians unable to afford their daily meals and other necessities of life.
