Presidential Inauguration: Buhari’s Silence Is Evidence Of Guilty Burden



PDP Abia primary

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has lampooned President Muhammadu Buhari over his failure to address Nigerians on his second term inauguration saying that the president was burdened by the guilt of what it described as the stolen mandate of the party.

The party in a statement on Wednesday also said the president’s failure to speak on the inauguration also reflected his lack of substance and insensitivity to the plight of Nigerians harassed by the insecurity in the land.

The party in a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondinyan said:

“The PDP holds that the failure by President Buhari and the APC to make any commitment at the ceremony reinforces the truism that a product of flawed electoral process cannot serve the people or meet their aspirations under a constitutional democracy.

“The poor attendance and passivity of the audience at the ceremony at a time that Nigerians were trooping, in their millions, to the inauguration of state governors elected on the platform of the PDP, manifestly show.

“It is indeed pathetic that at a ceremony such as Presidential inauguration, where truly elected leaders address their people, make commitments and unfold their governance direction, President Buhari did not showcase his plans or commitment to the development of critical sectors of our polity.

“It also speaks volumes that President Buhari had nothing to say to the victims of mindless killings and acts of violence in various parts of our country.

“Moreover, he had no directions toward stemming the economic distress under his administration, for which Nigerians are now resorting to suicide and slavery mission abroad as options.”
