Ologbondiyan added that since the president has demonstrated his preference for party politics above governance, he should take a crash course on party spokesmanship.

He explained that no well-meaning Nigerian can truly support such a corrupt party and incompetent government that has failed and betrayed the nation.

This is coming after the presidency said APC as a party has got the confidence of Nigerians and this has been shown by the recently held by-elections across the country.

The 'verdict' was given in a statement by Malam Garba Shehu, a senior aide to President Buhari on media and publicity.

In a statement he released in Abuja on Sunday, December 6, the presidential spokesperson said the APC is the party chosen by Nigerians.
