PDP slams Buhari over ‘Nigerians are free to go’ comment



The Peoples Democratic Party has condemned President Muhammadu Buhari’ s statement in which he said Nigerians “ who feel they have another country may choose to go . ”
The PDP described the statement as unpresidential, defeatist and characteristic of what it called failed leadership .

National Publicity Secretary of the party , Mr . Kola Ologbondiyan , in a statement in Abuja on Wednesday , said President Buhari, in saying that Nigerians , “ who feel they have another country may choose to go ”, had further confirmed that “ he is completely insensitive to the plight of our citizens and has no solution to the myriad of problems his incompetent and disorganized administration has caused our nation. ”

He described the President ’ s comment as “unfatherly” and a direct slap on the sensibilities of millions of Nigerians , who he said, had been painfully bearing the economic hardship, hunger and starvation which he said was allegedly caused by President Buhari ’ s administration .

Ologbondiyan said these were the problems that were forcing Nigerians to embark on what he called suicide missions and slavery as survival options .

He said, “ Such comment is a spit on the graves of thousands of compatriots killed by marauders in various parts of the country , while the Buhari Presidency and the All Progressives Congress remained aloof without decisive actions to end the carnage and bring the perpetrators of the bloodlettings to book .

“Mr . President ’ s comment is also a mockery on millions of Nigerians who have lost their businesses and whose families have been wrecked by the anti -people policies of the Buhari -led APC administration .

“Since Mr . President now knows that Nigerians across the board are hurting over the failures of his administrations , the least he, as an elected leader , should have done , was to accept responsibility , rise up to the occasion and find solutions , or at least , have some soothing words to suffering Nigerians instead of dismissing their pains and asking them to abandon their fatherland .

“ This remark by Mr . President also reminds of his widely condemned outbursts against our youths who he held in disdain as lazy and lovers of freebies . ”
