Buhari’s New Year Message Empty, Uninspiring – PDP
Nigeria’s main opposition political party, The Peoples Democratic Party has dismissed the January 1, 2021, national broadcast by the President Muhammadu Buhari , as empty, uninspiring and directionless.
This was contained in a statement titled, ‘Buhari’s New Year Address, Empty, Directionless – PDP…Shows Nigerians Have To Come Together, Salvage Our Nation,’ signed by the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, in Abuja, on Friday.
The party noted that the president’s 2021 New Year address was “empty, directionless” and confirmed its projection that the nation had indeed become leaderless.
Ologbondiyan said, “The President’s speech underscores the urgent need for compatriots to come together and salvage our nation that is fast becoming a failed state.
He further said it was “appalling that on New Year’s Day, all that President Buhari could offer a troubled and frustrated nation was a regurgitated script full of lame excuses and empty promises that addressed nothing.
“President Buhari has not demonstrated the capacity to play his own part, as he claimed, having failed to find solution for the security and economic challenges that pervade our nation under his incompetent and lethargic watch.
“The myriads of lame excuses in Mr. President’s address again underlines our national misfortune of a weak leadership that is unable to resolutely confront and vanquish bandits, terrorists, kidnappers and vandals who are now holding our nation hostage, ravaging our communities, kidnapping and beheading our compatriots without restrain.”
