PDP Berates Buhari For Snubbing Handover Programme by philips70(m): 5:36pm On May 24, 2015
Read the PDP press statement below...
The peoples Democratic Party (PDP) views with disappointment the apparent snub by the President-elect, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari of the handover programme lined up by the Federal Government to transmit power to him by Friday, May 29, 2015. The PDP said such behavior was a measure of lack of democratic discipline.

PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh in a statement on Sunday said the President-elect owes Nigerians explanations on why he snubbed the prayer sessions scheduled for Friday and Sunday for Muslims and Christians respectively to usher in four years of his in-coming administration as well as the embarrassing protocol gaffe and low-down treatment that characterized his visit to British Prime Minister David Cameron last Saturday.

The PDP said it was disgraceful that due to poor coordination and crass ineptitude in the handling of issues, the President-elect was left almost stranded while waiting for about thirty minutes before he was received by the British leader and wondered if such is a foretaste of the muddling to be experienced under the All Progressives Congress (APC)’s administration.

“Nigerians, as citizens of a sovereign nation were thoroughly embarrassed when they saw their President-elect cheapened and kept waiting at the door of 10 Downing Street to see the British Prime Minister due to shoddy arrangements by his handlers.

“Indeed, they are becoming increasingly worried about the frightening unpreparedness of the APC for governance and the huge embarrassments they have been attracting to our nation. We know that the APC has been lying over issues. We also know that the APC and the President-elect have been flip-flopping and reneging on their campaign promises; but to embarrass the nation by embarking on such a sensitive visit without adequate preparations is shameful and completely unacceptable.

“We share the fear of well-meaning Nigerians on how a party which cannot adequately handle a simple task of organizing a diplomatic outing will effectively administer a country as complex as Nigeria.

“The APC has continued to give signals that it lacks capacity to face the challenges of governance. Such has been evidenced in the uneasiness of the President-elect who in apparent loss of confidence in himself has started reneging on his promises of quick fixes while confessing in a meeting with APC governors-elect on May 5, 2015 that he has ‘started nervously to explain to people that Rome was not built in a day’.

“Instead of settling down for governance and working out how to fulfill its promises of making the naira the same in value with the dollar, paying N5, 000, 000 monthly to 25 million poor Nigerians, providing electricity on 24/7 basis, providing free meals for school children and allowances for discharged but unemployed youth corps members among others, the APC is busy inventing excuses for failure and blaming everyone else but themselves. We hope they will not blame the PDP for their Saturday’s embarrassing outing at 10 Downing Street.

"Furthermore, we find it curious and more than a co-incidence that the nation is experiencing an acute shortage of fuel and electricity supply at this point in time, when such has not been the case under the current PDP-led administration. We ask, are there some forces sabotaging the system to create an impression that the APC is inheriting poor infrastructure and complete system breakdown?

"Is this also part of the larger plot to embarrass and defame the PDP-led administration in an attempt to justify APC's excuses for failure", the PDP probed.

The party insisted that despite the challenges of insecurity and global economic recession that negatively affected many other nations, its administration had in the last 16 years worked very hard in repositioning critical sectors of the polity and laying strong infrastructure backbone that that any prepared and result oriented in-coming administration can comfortably leverage on.

It therefore asked the APC to get ready to apply its much-mouthed manifesto or be bold to apologize to Nigerians for presenting false messianic posture and making false promises to them.

Signed:

Olisa Metuh
National Publicity Secretary

Now it's confirmed, Metuh and PDP have gone mad. They need help. With the serious problems we have at the moment just see what their problem is.

He is even lying. He based his judgement on the earlier still pictures released. The motion pictures that later surfaced said something entirely different and that the president-elect was well received and matters of mutual benefit were discussed. Even if what he said was true, is that the current problem Nigerians are facing? In my opinion Buhari should boycott everything and appear in Eagle square on the 29th and snatch whatever baton from the slowpoke and escort him out of Abuja. These guys don't appreciate the big mess they have landed Nigerians at all. If they do they wont be coming with this useless release at this time Nigerians are suffering the worst suffer of their lifetime.

The man's speeches and press releases are so annoyingly childish and full of lies,u sometimes wonder how in hell he cud act as a publicity secretary.Even a half baked PR person does not comment based solely on a doctored social website pics or stories, talkless one of a soon to b opposition party.

Our politicians with pettiness. All the prayers and kneeling down before men of God that has been done in the past, where's the result.

Please focus on issues at hand. Eg fuel scarcity.

Abi is it Buhari that caused that too?

You did not really get it. If that day would be Jan 1st 1984 GMB would be coming in as a military dictator who will jail all these jailables without any phucking court asking any questions. I just wish we are in China or Indonesia. How on earth can Metuh and PDP release this rubbish at this moment?

This Friday can't come soon enough. I just need the voice of intelligent men to drown out those of morons. For Olisah Metuh to twist a public event like that to pander to his base because that's exactly what Nigeria's problem is right now is just dumb. A series of event that can be easily verified is what the soon to be opposition party is lying about. Does this guy realize that a clip of the visit was shown on tv?? Does he know the picture of Buhari standing outside was after the meeting and not before?? Does he realize that was just Buhari waiting to get into his car after Cameron had gone back into his residence as per protocol??

Yes Mr Metuh, Buhari's visit to the UK is exactly what the whole world is talking about now concerning Nigeria. There are no embarrassing stories of how an oil rich nation like Nigeria is experiencing the worst fuel scarcity ever.

What a party.

With Nigeria's economy vanishing into a Black Hole, PDP is still much more concerned about throwing jabs at APC.

What did we really do wrong to deserve such people as leaders?? This is really depressing.
