'Buhari Won't Resign' Presidency Replies PDP
The Presidency has said that President Muhammadu Buhari won’t not resign from duty as against the call of resignation by Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) due to the amount of corruption being unravel in his administration.
Reacting to the main opposition party’s call, Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President (Media & Publicity) said in a statement in Abuja on Friday night, that the administration cannot be stopped from its crusade against corruption.
It said the President is determined to continue the crusade against corruption, both legacy and recently unearthed cases, that are found to be shabbily handled, and in some cases unattended to by past administrations.
The statement further said that the PDP cannot scare the government from probing the grave allegations made against MDAs and their chiefs because, failure to do so will amount to a historic betrayal of public trust.
Shehu said in the statement that PDP cannot subject Nigeria’s democracy to subterranean attacks and continue to pretend that they are well-meaning. He added that the PDP statement observed that the PDP is suffering from what it called “undemocratic pandemic” at a time the world is grappling with coronavirus.
The statement as well said that based on the statement issued by the embattled chairman of PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, it is clear that they would have liked the President to not investigate but to cover things up: to not wake the sleeping lion as voiced by another of their leaders.
Shehu concluded that the PDP government which exited the stage five years ago through a democratic election by voters dissatisfied with corruption on an industrial scale, policy paralysis, obsolete and decaying essential infrastructure appears to have forgotten the reason for their stunning defeat and seem hell-bent on the fooling the nation, yet again for another ride to power.
