- The PPD accuse the presidency of working to frustrate Atiku from reclaiming his mandate
- The opposition party said INEC was also working in conjunction with the presidency
- The party also condemned President Buhari’s trip to the UK
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has condemned President Muhamamdu Buhari’s private trip to the UK saying it was a wrong move at a time the country was having security issues.
Daily Trust reports that the chairman of the party, Uche Secondus gave this criticism during a press conference on Friday, April 26.
Secondus also claimed the presidency was arm-twisting the Independent National Electoral Commission against Atiku Abubakar to prevent him from reclaiming his stolen mandate.
Secondus decried the killings in in Zamfara, Benue, Taraba and called on the government to face this problem.
He said the eectorsal commission has refused to allow Atiku’s legal team inspect election materials saying it was a plot by the presidency and INEC to frustrate Atiku.
The PDP chairman said: “Nigerian leaders should speak up for the country before Nigeria slides into something else. People are being murdered everyday and Buhari is going on private visit. Nigeria is in crisis.
“The President has embarked on a private trip to the UK to spend 11 days without writing the National Assembly. He has not asked the Vice President to act. We condenm it.”
“The presidency is also armtwisting INEC. INEC has no reason to stop our legal team from inspecting the election materials. Our politics and governance here is sentimental.”

According to a statement by the president’s senior special assistant on media and publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, in Abuja on Friday, April 26, President Buhari made the donations in response to an urgent request for assistance by the government of Guinea Bissau towards the country’s election.
