The Presidency has frowned at the activities of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP); saying the party represents the single biggest obstacle to good governance and change in the country.
Malam Garba Shehu, the spokesman of the Presidency, in a statement in Abuja on Thursday, January 9; said the country’s main opposition party had no business in the internal affairs of the governing party, the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He said: “As the Peoples Democratic Party, the country’s main opposition party grapples with deeply troubling questions about its terminal decline and future in national politics; Nigerians must be surprised reading a statement issued by the; assuming the role of Spokesmen for President Muhammadu Buhari.
”What business do they have talking about alleged love lost between President Buhari and the APC? What do they know? Who sent them?
”Today, the PDP represents the single biggest obstacle to good governance and change that the country needs and the people are yearning for.
”Both self-respect and sound political judgement demand that the Party takes an introspective look at itself; after two successive defeats in national elections; asking what went wrong and how to fix its battered image.
”The party needs a reboot that aligns with current national mood and aspirations; to focus on their grim future after two successive defeats.
”It is the issue they need to focus on if they are to be taken as a serious opposition party again.”
According to him, a tough task awaits anyone leading a party with nothing to offer to contemporary Nigerians; but corruption, misgovernance and division.
”As for the APC, the geographical expansion of the party is nothing short of a testimony to the rosy future that lies ahead. The party has come to stay, and the President and the country will ensure that this is achieved,” he added.
