Major opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party has on Wednesday, described the inauguration of the 43 ministers by President Muhammadu Buhari as “a poor parade of recycled foot-travelers.”
The PDP National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, in a statement also alleged that many of the ministers had failed Nigerians in governance assignment in the past.
According to him, in assembling a team made up of persons “indicted for corruption and treasury looting,” Buhari demonstrated that he has nothing to offer to the nation other than “condoning and encouraging corruption,” as well as “perpetuating incompetence, failure and ineffectiveness in governance.”
He said, “The PDP is, however, not surprised that the President had no clear-cut blueprint to rescue the nation from the economic, security and social quagmires which his administration had plunged our nation into in the last four years.
“Of course, Mr. President has, several times, demonstrated a lack of required capacity to lead a nation as complex as Nigeria, especially at these trying times,” he said.
He however added, “Nigerians should not lose hope but continue in the expressed determination to retrieve Atiku’s stolen presidential mandate in court.
