PDP should stop their campaign of disorganization - Garba Shehu

- The presidential spokesperson has tackled PDP over the party's comment criticizing President Buhari's nationwide broadcast

- A statement by presidential spokesman Garba Shehu asked the opposition party to stop their campaign of disorganization

- Recall that PDP in reaction to Buhari's speech expressed disappointment and noted that he did not address important issues of concerns to Nigerians

The presidency has tackled Nigeria's opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) over their comments on President Muhammadu Buhari’s nationwide address on Monday, April 13.

It would be recalled that the PDP faulted Buhari's speech on coronavirus, noting that the president failed to address important issues of urgent concerns to Nigerians.

However, reacting on Wednesday, April 15, the presidency said something much is wrong if the opposition party dismissed the national broadcast which the European Union, described as ‘‘a very powerful address to the nation” as disappointing.

The presidency said every single decision taken in the interest of national security by the Buhari administration has been opposed by PDP.

Buhari's speech failed to address important issues of urgent concerns to Nigerians - PDP reacts

The reaction was contained in a statement by the senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu.

"Something must definitely be wrong with Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP) if they would-as they did yesterday- dismiss the important national broadcast by President Muhammadu Buhari as “disappointing,” a speech for which the European Union, through their Ambassador to Nigeria, congratulated the President, describing it as ‘‘a very powerful address to the nation last night," part of the statement reads.

The presidential spokesman also tackled the country's main opposition party saying they have a choice to reconnect with the people by joining this coalition and stop the unnecessary distractions.

He also added that the party should recognize the efforts of the Buhari-led administration and if there is nothing important to say they should simply close their mouth as Nigeria is more important than politics.

He said: "The PDP should make the choice of reconnecting with the people by joining this coalition and stopping the unnecessary distractions; recognizing the efforts of the people led by the government or simply shut their mouth if they have nothing important to say. The nation is more important than politics."
