PDP Berates Buhari Presidency For Dismissing Financial Times’ Caution On Nigeria Becoming A Failed State



President Muhammadu Buhari

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has berated President Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress (APC) over what it described as the “arrogant trivialization of our nation’s tragic descent to a failed state” under his administration, saying it confirms that Nigeria “is on autopilot with nobody in charge”.

The PDP asserted that the Presidency’s conceited response to Financial Times editorial on the sorry state of affairs in the nation under President Buhari also further confirms the position of its party that “there is complete leadership failure in Nigeria”.

In a statement issued on Sunday by Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP Spokesperson, the opposition party noted that it was sad that the Buhari Presidency “prefers to rebuff wise counsel and continue to drive our nation to the precipice instead of seeking help for the sake of millions of traumatized Nigerians”.

“Indeed, the editorial by Financial Times is only stating the obvious, as our nation under President Buhari has presented all the trappings of a failed state including having a rudderless government with a dysfunctional command structure that cannot guarantee security, manage our economy or even perform very simple tasks of governance,” the statement further reads.

“Our great nation now tends towards a leaderless society where terrorists, bandits, kidnappers, marauders and vandals have taken the lead, running riotous across our land while those who promised to protect lives and property have gone into hiding in Aso Presidential Villa.

“Under President Buhari life is fast tilting towards Hobbesian state of  nature; driven by the combined negatives of an incompetent and unconcerned Presidency and a reckless, kleptomaniac and dysfunctional ruling party that is more interested in power-grabbing instead of governance.

“President Buhari has badly failed in governance to the extent that over 600 students could be kidnapped by bandits in his home state, Katsina, a few hours after his security machinery took over the state, where he had gone to holiday.

“Under Buhari’s watch, our command structure has become extremely weak that government officials now patronize bandits and rationalize acts of terrorism to the extent of blaming victims for not obtaining permission before living their normal lives as was the case in the 43 farmers beheaded by terrorists in Borno state.”
