President Muhammadu Buhari has been described as a common enemy of Nigerians by the Peoples Democratic Party and the Social Democratic Party.
The statement was made by the spokespersons of the parties while at the national secretariat of PDP on Wednesday in Abuja.
Princess Goldba Tolofari, the National Publicity Secretary of the SDP, while on a visit to the Peoples Democratic party’s spokesperson, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, made the statement.
Ologbondiyan said, “We have a common enemy; Buhari is the enemy of Nigeria. He’s a common enemy to the SDP and PDP, that is why we are here to rescue the nation.”
Tolofari, while delivering her greetings from Chief Olu Falae, the SDP Chairman, further stated that Buhari was brought into power by Nigerians, thinking that they were bringing a messiah that would rescue the nation.
While describing the story of Nigeria, the SDP spokesperson stated that other Africa countries has lost respect for Nigeria, adding that, “it beat my imagination that under Buhari’s watch, things are deteriorating.”
She added, “They are not democrats, that is why things are deteriorating and we cannot watch and see things going the way they are.
“Buhari is the Minister of Petroleum and the whole place stinks of corruption. Graduates are taxi drivers, there is hunger everywhere and that is why our youths are carrying guns with killings everywhere.”
She commended Ologbondiyan for giving a voice to alternative views which she said that the Federal Government would rather muffle.
Tolofari, however said a joint work with Ologbondiyan would help to unroot the common obstacle holding down national growth and development “for our traumatised people and the nation.”
Ologbondiyan, revealed that a Memorandum of Understanding was signed with the SDP and 37 other parties so as to push out Buhari from power.
He said, “You have said that the problem of Nigeria today is Buhari and we are joining together to push him out. The bloodletting is becoming too much.
“The journey from Abuja to Kaduna, which is less than two hours, has become a nightmare and this government is not doing anything about it. That is why we signed the MoU to rescue this country.”
He stated that the rescue mission is already on, and the result of it is the mass defection of lawmakers from the All Progressives Congress to the PDP at the National Assembly on Tuesday.
Ologbondiyan, pointed out that Nigerians has been failed by Nigerians for been unable to fight Boko Haram, corruption and other vices besieging the nation, stating that the President’s body language supports corruption.
He cited a case of the Minister of Finance, Mrs Kemi Adeosun, who was accused of certificate forgery, saying, “we don’t expect her to stay a day longer, but because Buhari’s body language encourages corruption that is why she’s still there. Buhari must be voted out.”
But the Presidency has described the claim by the PDP and SDP that Buhari is Nigeria’s common enemy as the most hilarious accusation against the President.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said this in an interview with Punch.
Shehu described Buhari as the noblest person to preside over Nigeria since independence.
The presidential spokesman said, “This is by far the most hilarious accusation against our President.
“President Buhari is the noblest person to lead Nigeria since independence.
“Unlike some of his predecessors handed to the nation by the Peoples Democratic Party, no one calls him a coward, a psychopath or a thief.”
