PDP Mocks Buhari Over Aisha Villa Drama




The country’s main opposition political party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has reacted to the recent drama between wife of the President, Aisha Buhari and daughters of Mamman Daura, Buhari’s nephew.

In a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan on Tuesday, PDP described the “public fight” as disgraceful.

The statement reads:

“The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) describes the dirty public fight between the First Lady, Aisha Buhari and President Muhammadu Buhari’s cousins, over rooms in the Presidential villa, as disgraceful and further underlines the managerial ineptitude and leadership failures of the Buhari Presidency

“The party says the chaos in the Villa further exposes the Buhari Presidency’s poor management of issues and highlights why it has failed monumentally in delivering on any of its responsibilities in governance, thus leaving our dear nation in a shambolic situation in the last five years.

“The feud further uncovers the impunity, disorderliness and vanity that pervade the Buhari Presidency and how the once serious and productive seat of power has been turned into a house of comedy and an overcrowded quarter for illegal occupants.

“Nigerians can now see why it has become difficult for our nation to witness any stability or progress under the Buhari Presidency and why the Buhari-led Federal Government has been bedeviled by confusion, infighting, policy flip-flops, statutory violations, promotion of violence, ingrained corruption and administrative indolence while millions of Nigerians wallow in poverty and neglect.

“Nigerians and the world can equally see why no one expects the Buhari Presidency to articulate any progressive idea or proffer and implement any solution to the myriad of economic and security problems it caused our nation; they can now see why there is no hope in sight and why compatriots are daily agitating for a new order.

“Our party notes that our dear nation has suffered enough disgrace from the Buhari Presidency and the All Progressives Congress (APC). The PDP therefore charges President Buhari to immediately apologize to Nigerians for his failures and be ready to vacate office for more competent hands, since it has become obvious that he is leading our country to nowhere.

“Furthermore, the PDP urges the National Assembly to investigate the alleged abuse of office by President Buhari following revelation that he assigns official facilities in the Presidential villa to unauthorized persons that have no official roles in governance, and apply appropriate sanctions.

“The PDP also urges the National Assembly to sanitize the Presidential villa by probing allegations of illegal allotment of offices and apartments to unauthorized persons, including scammers and corruption fronts in Aso Rock.

“The party however urges Nigerians to remain calm as such provocative and disgraceful developments will soon come to an end with the retrieval of our stolen mandate at the Supreme Court.”

    PDP needs to realize that as a major party in the country, they do not have to win the Presidency to contribute to the economic development, security, job creation in the country. The worn election as Governors, Senate, House of Representatives and this gave them mandate to help move the country forward. If they have no idea as to how to be ab opposition party, they should copy from the United States where the Democrats focus on how to move the country forward. Issues like what happens in Aso Rock is so trivial for a political party to comment on. Such comments contribute nothing to the issues facing the nation.
    As long as the PDP produced Governors, Senators House of Representatives during the last election they owe the electorates the duty to discharged promises made to them to be elected. Voters don’t benefit from criticism year after year but productivity from all parties.
