The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said failure and incompetence marked President Muhammadu Buhari’s first four-year tenure.

The party dismissed as false, the President’s claims of his administration’s performance in his Monday television interview, saying he only engaged in his usual blame game in the said interview.

In a statement yesterday by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP also chided the President for not using the interview to give an account of the trillions of naira allegedly stolen in the last four years.

“The PDP notes that it was an internationally accepted position that all critical sectors in our country performed abysmally in the last four years because of the incompetence of President Buhari’s administration.

“It was unfortunate that instead of accepting responsibility for the failures of his administration, Mr. President is looking for scapegoats where there are none.

“It is for this reason that the PDP presented a presidential candidate and deputy with strong knowledge of the economy and social order in order to rescue our nation from the dire straits into which she had been thrown due to poor leadership in the last four years”, the statement added.”

The PDP also observed that President Buhari’s diatribe against the National Assembly and its elected leadership further confirmed his disdain for constitutional democracy, rule of law and the principle of separation of powers as entrenched in the constitution.

The statement continued: “Mr President’s personal attacks on the Senate President, Bukola Saraki and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, were totally uncalled for and speak volumes of his disposition about democracy.

“Moreover, President Buhari should end his showboating on the war against corruption. He must admit that he failed because his administration, which swims in ocean of corruption, cannot fight corruption.

“This is an administration which thrives in concealment; under which over N14 trillion belonging to Nigerians have been frittered by officials, who have not been investigated or prosecuted.”

The party said President Buhari also failed as a Commander-In-Chief and lamented the escalation of insurgency, bloodletting, kidnapping and other forms of violent acts in various parts of the nation.

“Furthermore, it is disappointing that Mr. President has no soothing words for millions of compatriots who have been subjected to the worst form of economic and social misery under his incompetent and corrupt administration.

“The party however urges Nigerians not to despair but continue in their determination and prayers to retrieve the stolen presidential mandate at the tribunal so that our nation can have a purposeful government that will be truly alive to its responsibility to the people”, the statement added.
