PDP fires back at Buhari as President says government has succeeded



The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has fired back at President Muhammadu Buhari for saying that his government has succeeded with the resources and time offered to it.

Buhari said, on Thursday, that history and posterity would judge his regime over its efforts to restore security and improve the economy in Nigeria.

The President added that he and the All Progressives Congress (APC) Governors were doing all within their powers to ensure that the country progresses.

Buhari said this shortly before he went into a closed door meeting with 12 Governors, who visited him in his country home on Kongolam Road, Daura, Katsina State.

The President stated, “It’s not easy for us in this country to make people appreciate what we have gone through, but if you try to discuss in relation to time and resources, then you will appreciate what the APC government has done.

“So, I think all of us have done our best and we thank God that within the resources and time available, God has helped us and we have succeeded; otherwise, we would have been in trouble.

“So, I thank you very much for the visit, including those who have recently joined the party.

“I assure you that our intellectuals and historians will be expected to be fair to the APC government to examine the time and resources within which we operate, so that for those who are looking for positions of excellence in the Presidency and the governors not exposed to know the ignorance or lack of political knowledge of the ordinary people and feed them with lies.”

Buhari said before his government came into power, the security state was horrible in the North-East, stating that the condition there had become better now.

The President added that the involvement of military personnel in dealing with banditry in the North-West had also helped to curb bandits attack in the zone.

Twelve Governors were in attendance at the meeting, which started a few minutes to 4pm and ended about an hour later.

The Governors include Lagos, Babajide Sanwo-Olu; Kebbi, Abubakar Bagudu; Ekiti, Kayode Fayemi; Katsina, Aminu Masari; Plateau, Simon Lalong; Nasarawa, Abdullahi Sule; Niger, Abubakar Bello; Kano, Abdullahi Ganduje; Osun, Gboyega Oyetola; Cross River, Benedict Ayade; Ebonyi, David Umahi; and Gombe, Muhammed Yahaya.

In addition, the former Governor of Zamfara State, Senator Ahmed Yarima was in attendance.

Meanwhile, PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, has stated that history will not be kind to Buhari due to the damage his government has done to the country.

He was replying to assertions by President Buhari that history would be kind to him for doing so much for Nigeria with so little resources.

Ologbondiyan, who spoke our reporters on the phone on Thursday stated, “In case Mr President is not aware, the summation of opinion of most Nigerians is that his best is the worst for Nigeria.

“In case he is not aware, life in this country has become hellish, brutal and short. Parents no longer feel safe sending their children to schools for fear of bandits and terrorists, who ransack schools to kidnap children. He promised us security; insecurity has made Nigeria a butt of jokes across Africa. He promised to fight corruption; now, the Aso Rock Villa, where he sits, is the citadel of corruption.

“Since 2015 and despite the mountain of corruption in the FIRS, NNPC, NHIS and other parastatals too numerous to mention, all we hear is that he has eased the heads out; he was not elected to ease corrupt people out, but to prosecute them. History will judge him no doubt, but we in the PDP doubt that history will be kind to him considering the damage his rule has done to our institutions and national cohesion.”
