The National Working Committee(NWC), yesterday, said it will meet with critical stakeholders in the zone, including the Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde and former Ekiti governor, Ayodele Fayose, to try to resolve the crisis among leaders of the opposition party.
The party source said after the meeting, that the party will decide whether or not to go ahead with the South West congress, as earlier scheduled or fix a new date for the exercise.
We Can’t “Continue” with Bad Governance, PDP Tells Buhari
…Says APC’s Statement Confirms Mr President Has Been Lethargic
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) welcomes President Muhammadu Buhari from his medical tourism in the United Kingdom, but rejects his declaration that Nigerians should expect the “continuity” of his misrule.
The PDP also asserts that the statement by the All Progressives Congress (APC), that President Buhari has been “re-energized” after his medical treatment, is a confirmation that Mr. President had been incapable and lethargic, leading to the inefficiency, disorganization and general misrule that have bedeviled his administration.
While Nigerians are at a loss on the import of President Buhari’s declaration upon his return that what they should expect is “continuity”, our party wishes to remind Mr.
The PDP holds that whatever purpose his frame of mind on “continuity” was made to serve, it must not detach from the finality of his leaving office in on May 29, 2023.
Moreover, Nigerians vehemently reject any idea of “continuity” that pertains to failed economy, hunger and starvation, banditry, killings, terrorism, kidnapping, abuse of human rights, treasury looting, mindless borrowing and other vices that have characterized the APC administration under the watch of President Buhari.
This is especially as the comment by the APC had already confirmed that our nation has indeed been on auto-pilot leading to shambolic state of affairs in the nation, escalation of violence and insecurity, wrecking of our national economy, policy inconsistency, entrenchment of corruption and impunity, with no hope in sight.
While the PDP recognizes the humanity of all, our party advises that those at the helm of affairs must be honest enough not to take up assignments that are beyond their capacity.
Now that Mr. President is “re-energized,” his handlers have no further excuses on his failure to lead from the front as he promised, in the fight against terrorists and insurgents, whose activities escalated under his watch.
Our party therefore expects the “re-energized” President Buhari as the Commander-In-Chief to immediately proceed to Zamfara, Borno, Kaduna, Adamawa and other states where terrorists have practically taken over communities on account of the failures of his administration.
Mr. President should also immediately address the nation on how he intends to pay back the huge foreign loans his administration had collected in the last six years, for which the future of our nation has been mortgaged.
The “re-energized” President is also expected to forcefully commence the recovery of over N15 trillion reportedly stolen by APC leaders from government agencies including the NNPC, NEMA, EFCC, NDDC among others.
Our party insist that Mr. President must henceforth take responsibility and end his excuse of not always being aware of issues in our country.

Nigeria losing territory to Boko Haram, says APC rep
Haruna Dederi, a member of the house of representatives from Kano, says Nigeria is losing territories to Boko Haram insurgents.
Dederi said this on Wednesday at the sitting of the house committee on judiciary.
The panel held the meeting with the leadership of the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) over its ongoing strike.
While begging the union to suspend the strike, Dederi who is the deputy chairman of the committee, said Nigeria is witnessing “troubles everywhere,” adding that those who love the country will not be happy about its present situation.
“As I said earlier, everything we have discussed here has been in public domain.
“You visited the Nigerian Bar Association and you had very lengthy discussion with the NBA. In fact, the sum total of what was given to you as a piece of advice, I think, centered completely around the comment that our colleague here asked.
“I asked those questions because I know that there are some states that have indicated willingness to comply.
“I deliberately refused to say that they have complied. It is safer to say they have indicated their willingness to comply. I know for sure that the federal government has complied completely.
“I want to follow the pattern of the comments of my colleagues. You seek equity and you are very correct. We are with you because we feel for you, we feel for Nigerians.
“Nobody is happy to see impunity. It is the bane of democratic development everywhere in the world, when you refuse to comply with the law.
“When you jettison the rule of law of course there will be chaos, there will be confusion everywhere and the polity will get sick and unfortunately it may even die.
“We are in solidarity with your strike but we are looking at the totality of the Nigerian situation. You know very well, we have too many things on our hands and it is not good for Nigerians. And whoever loves Nigeria would not be happy to see what goes on in this country the way it is going on.
“Banditry in the north-west has taken over villages and cows. Boko Haram is resurging. We are losing a lot of territories.
“We must be very frank, we have troubles everywhere and the nation is virtually in crisis everywhere. Please, please I want to appeal to you, to feel for Nigerians. People are suffering.
“See what is going on in our correctional houses today. See the kind of cases that are now coming to the police stations with no where to go. Please I want to appeal to you, in line with the appeal of my colleagues to please, please suspend the strike generally but more particularly, in relation to those who have either complied or has shown willingness to comply so that we can have some sanity.”
