The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called out the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government, claiming there’s nothing meaningful to show for its last five years in power.
Buhari clocks five years in office as President today (Friday) following his second term victory at the 2019 general elections where he defeated the Presidential Candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar.
But in a post on its social media page, the opposition party described the All Progressives Congress-led government as “total scam.”
The PDP said in the tweet: “#APCFailures: 5 years of President Muhammadu Buhari in office and nothing to show for it, except acute corruption, indebtedness, poverty, stagnation, hunger, insecurity, lockdowns, curfews, dictatorship, nepotism, etc. The All Progressives Congress is a total scam, 419 government.
The opposition party’s reaction comes hours after the Presidency released highlights of Buhari’s achievements in the country since coming into power in 2015.
Recall that Buhari’s spokesman, Femi Adesina, had in a fact-sheet released on Thursday, argued his principal has “made salutary impact in almost all the facets of Nigerian life.”
He had said: “Between May 29, 2015, when it was inaugurated for the first term, and now, the Buhari administration has made salutary impact in almost all the facets of Nigerian life.
“The government swept into office on the wings of change, and that change has been wrought in nearly all phases of national life. Where the lofty goals are yet to be attained, it is work in progress, and eyes are firmly fixed on the ball. No distraction.
“The three umbrella areas on which government based its interventionist agenda are: security, reviving the economy (with particular emphasis on job creation, especially for youths), and fighting corruption. In these three areas, where we are today cannot be compared with where we used to be.”
