Prepare to go! – PDP tells Buhari



The Peoples Democratic Party has told President Muhammadu Buhari not to waste his energy on any “ cosmetic campaign ” for collection of Permanent Voter Card , alleging that the “ failure” of his administration has provided enough stimuli for Nigerians to fully participate in the 2019 election .
The party said President Buhari , by now , ought to have known that such “ theatrics , ” allegedly simulated by his “ handlers , ” cannot help his “ self- destroyed public image ” or reverse the determination of Nigerians to vote him out in 2019 .

National Publicity Secretary of the party , Mr . Kola Ologbondiyan , said in a statement in Abuja on Sunday , that Buhari declared his interest to run again some months back without engaging in voter education .

He wondered what had made the President to suddenly realise the importance of PVCs .

Ologbondiyan said , “ This is a leader who declared interest to contest , months ago , without talking about PVCs or engaging in any form of voter education , only for him to suddenly wake up to the reality of the mass wave of PVC collection by Nigerians , which signposts the inevitable electoral humiliation that awaits him and his party in 2019 .

“ The sad issue is that President Buhari has refused to come to terms with the fact that Nigerians have since moved ahead of him . He does not need to urge them to get their PVCs .

“ They have had enough of his administration with its associated economic hardship , nepotism , bloodletting , violence and killings , and are therefore eagerly collecting the cards with the singular aim of voting him out of office .

“ In fact , it appears that Mr . President just started hearing the drumbeat by Nigerians , expressing their dissatisfaction . ”

He said that the shock that awaits the President in 2019 would be unprecedented in the nation’ s political history .

He called on the President to get prepared to accept defeat and quit office for a new President in 2019 .
