Buhari’s New Year Address
The party said the myriads of lame excuses in Mr. President’s address again underlines Nigeria’s national misfortune of weak leadership that is unable to resolutely confront bandits, terrorists, kidnappers, and vandals.
Ologbondiyan in the statement said the least Nigerians expected from Mr. President, in the New Year, was a decisive will to tackle the nation’s security challenges by rejigging the nation’s security architecture.
The PDP stressed that the situation at hand requires more than an armchair commander in chief who only dwells on excuses for manifest failures.
It also accused the President of having no clear strategies to shore up the value of our naira, repay and end Nigeria’s foreign borrowings, revamp external reserves, give hope to foreign investors, health care and guarantee food security.
