The Presidency on Thursday dismissed the claims by the Peoples Democratic Party that President Muhammadu Buhari is embarking on a 10-day leave in order to open the stage for illegal and unconstitutional actions by his administration.

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, described the claims as “ridiculous” and “a hollow narrative” to garner cheap sympathy.

“That the President, himself a sworn democrat, had handed power to his deputy without compulsion is itself exemplary and innovative, something that the PDP failed to produce in their 16 years of monumental mismanagement and sadistic plunder.”

The presidential aide added: “For the benefit of the doubters, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, the Vice President who acts in the absence of the President, is a lawyer of the highest rank and a social rights crusader who had received local and international acclaim before he took the president’s office.

“It is inconceivable that this is the team to copy the bad manners cast in stone in the PDP.

“We welcome objective criticisms and take them seriously and humbly, but Nigerians must by now be tired of a party, the stock-in-trade of which is to cry wolf where there is none, ostensibly to spread negativity and distract the President’s attention from the cleansing operations he has been mandated carry out.’’

According to him, the President is carrying out difficult reforms for the future growth of the country, such as the implementation of the ease of doing business, the Treasury Single Account and the whistleblower policy.

Shehu added that other refoms embarked upon by the president included the massive investment in rail, roads and power.

“If such reforms had happened in 16 years of the PDP, it would have made things much better for the country.

“Instead, they seem to be fixated with a desperate quest for power, nothing but power for its own sake because they have nothing to offer.

“They draw a sadistic pleasure when things appear to be going wrongly, yet they offer nothing by way of remedy or solutions.

“The whole country is fighting corruption and the ordinary citizen is happy about all that is happening,’’ he further stated.

The presidential spokesman also noted that the economic parameters had changed for the better, a clear indication that the administration’s political and economic strategies were working but the opposition was not interested.

He therefore advised the PDP to just keep quiet if the party does not have anything that would help the farmers, women, the common man and the youth.

He said: “In the end, one thing Nigerians should take away from the cacophonous falsehoods from the PDP and the tenants back in their tent is that they all fear one thing, that their old records will be reopened.’’
