PDP mocks Buhari over leaked tape
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari’s government is dead because of its failure to deliver on its responsibilities to the people.

He said the Buhari administration had taken steps to promote widespread decadence in national economy, a development, he noted, had produced unprecedented expansion in the level of poverty, unemployment and general misery.

Atiku, who spoke at a political rally in Lokoja, particularly derided the All Progressives Congress (APC) administration for defying the payment of salaries and allowances of workers.


Besides, the National Co-ordinator of Atiku Nationwide Project, Hajiya Aishatu Bello, said the Buhari-led administration had failed in securing lives and property of Nigerians.

Bello, who stated this yesterday while speaking with journalists in Gombe during the official inauguration of North-East co-ordinators and state excos, said that insecurity is worse than under PDP administration in the last 16 years.

Meanwhile, the PDP has asked the President to throw in the towel and end his re-election bid because of what the party called “the expressed disapproval and vilification by his own Campaign Director-General, Rotimi Amaechi, in the leaked audio recording.”

The PDP noted that since the audio recording leaked last Friday, neither Amaechi nor the Buhari Campaign Organisation has mustered the strength to deny or offer any cogent explanation on the matter, an indication, according to the party, showed that Buhari has lost the loyalty of his support base.

The party, in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said: “This development amply shows that the Buhari Campaign Organisation is in agreement with Amaechi that President Buhari’s incompetence, nepotism, insensitivity and corruption, and not the 16 years of the PDP in government, are responsible for the myriad of problems facing our nation.”
