Villa feud shows incompetence, disorganisation in Buhari’s Presidency- PDP


The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described the open animosity between the First Lady, Mrs Aisha Buhari and President Muhammadu Buhari’s cousins, over rooms in the Presidential villa, as disgraceful.

In a statement Tuesday by the spokesman for the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party said the feud further underlined the managerial ineptitude and leadership failures of the Buhari Presidency.

The main opposition party said the “chaos” in the Villa further exposed the Presidency’s poor management of issues and highlighted why it has failed monumentally in delivering on any of its responsibilities in governance, thus leaving the dear nation in a shambolic situation in the last five years.

The statement said, “The feud further uncovers the impunity, disorderliness and vanity that pervade the Buhari Presidency and how the once serious and productive seat of power has been turned into a house of comedy and an overcrowded quarter for illegal occupants.

“Nigerians can now see why it has become difficult for our nation to witness any stability or progress under the Buhari Presidency and why the Buhari-led Federal Government has been bedeviled by confusion, infighting, policy flip-flops, statutory violations, promotion of violence, ingrained corruption and administrative indolence while millions of Nigerians wallow in poverty and neglect.

“Nigerians and the world can equally see why no one expects the Buhari Presidency to articulate any progressive idea or proffer and implement any solution to the myriad of economic and security problems it caused our nation; they can now see why there is no hope in sight and why compatriots are daily agitating for a new order”.

The party further noted that the nation has suffered enough disgrace from the Buhari Presidency and the All Progressives Congress (APC)

It charged President Buhari to immediately apologise to Nigerians for his “failures” and be ready to vacate office for more competent hands, since it has become obvious that he is leading the country nowhere.

“Furthermore, the PDP urges the National Assembly to investigate the alleged abuse of office by President Buhari following revelation that he assigns official facilities in the Presidential villa to unauthorized persons that have no official roles in governance, and apply appropriate sanctions.

“The PDP also urges the National Assembly to sanitize the Presidential villa by probing allegations of illegal allotment of offices and apartments to unauthorized persons, including scammers and corruption fronts in Aso Rock”, the statement added.

The party urged Nigerians to remain calm as such “provocative and disgraceful” developments will soon come to an end with the retrieval of its “stolen mandate” at the Supreme Court.
