Presidency to PDP: Settle crisis in your party — Tinubu solving Nigeria’s problems



 The presidency has criticised the Peoples Democratic Party
(PDP) over its statement on the President Bola Tinubu administration.


On Thursday, the PDP conducted its 98th national executive
council (NEC) meeting at the party’s secretariat in Abuja.


During the meeting, the PDP NEC asked Umar Damagum to remain
as the acting national chair of the PDP.



In a communique issued after the meeting, PDP NEC expressed
concerns over “the ill-implemented policies of the insensitive APC
administration, leading to worsening insecurity”.

“NEC expresses serious apprehensions over the spate of acts
of terrorism and violence including the escalated cases of mindless killings,
mass abduction of innocent Nigerians and marauding of communities in various
parts of the country,” PDP said in a communique.



“NEC condemns the insensitivity, nonchalance, incompetence
and arrogance in failure of the APC administration which continues to conduct
itself in a manner that shows that it has no iota of interest or commitment
towards the wellbeing of Nigerians.


“NEC also condemns the creeping totalitarianism and
tendencies towards a one-Party State which is inimical to the peace, stability
and corporate existence of our nation as well as the development of Democracy
and good governance in the country.


 “NEC, after due
consideration demands that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu should urgently convene
a special National Security Council meeting to proffer a holistic solution and
measures to curb the disturbing insecurity with its attendant negative
consequences on our national life.



“NEC also demands that President Tinubu should immediately
rejig his Economic Team to bring in persons of proven integrity and competence
without bias and vested interest to assist in repositioning the economy.”


Reacting to the communique, Bayo Onanuga, special adviser to
the president on information and strategy, said members of the PDP NEC
“completely ignored” reality and the “stellar” achievements of the Tinubu



Onanuga said Tinubu’s economic team is doing well, contrary
to PDP’s take, adding that the security situation of the country is improving.


 “We believe the
party’s NEC members must have been habiting another planet, as all the
accusations contradicted the reality on ground and completely ignored the
stellar achievements recorded by the Tinubu Administration in less than one
year,” the statement reads.


“Unlike the PDP administration of 16 years, the Tinubu
administration has been confronting the problems of our country headlong,
moving for an audacious reset that will firmly put our country on a solid
economic pedestal.



“The results are already showing. Contrary to the pessimism
and wishes of some PDP leaders, the National Currency has become the world’s
best performing, appreciating by almost 50 percent against the dollar in a few


“The PDP is advised to harmonise its home first, rather than
accusing President Tinubu of trying to entrench one party state. President
Tinubu nurses no such plan as it only exists in the imagination of the
opposition PDP.”
