President Buhari Is Not A Democrat – PDP
The leadership of the All Progressives Congress on Tuesday kept sealed lips over the rejection of President Muhammadu Buhari’s list of non-career ambassadors.
Attempts to get an official reaction from the party were futile. Calls to the mobile number of the party’s National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, were neither picked nor returned.
A response to a text message sent to him on the subject was being awaited as of the time of filing this report.
Similar calls to the party’s National Secretary, Mai Buni, indicated that his telephone was switched off. He also did not respond to a text message sent to him.
Calls to the mobile telephone number of the party’s Deputy National Chairman ((South), Segun Oni, were also neither picked nor returned.
A response to a text message sent to him was also being expected as of the time of filing this report.
The party’s Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Timi Frank, did not pick his calls neither did he respond to a text message on the subject as of 9:06pm.
The PDP, however, blamed Buhari for the rejection of the list.
Spokesperson for the Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led national caretaker committee of the party, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, said that it was obvious that the President had lost control of the National Assembly, especially the Senate.
He said the President did not know how to play politics and was not schooled in the art of consultation.
Adeyeye said, “The action was not surprising to us as a party. It is obvious that the President is not a democrat and he is always doing things in a shoddy manner. Look at the way he presented the loan, the budget and others issues before the Senate.
“This is a President whose party is in control of the two chambers of the National Assembly, yet, he doesn’t know how to consult the leadership.
“The President does not know how to consult and speak with the members of his party. Here is a President that does things in a shoddy manner without diligence.
“The rejection did not come as a surprise to us. Rather, Nigerians should brace for more embarrassing moments and actions from the President who was not prepared to govern.”
