PDP blasts Buhari, says he's unstable and blood thirsty

The Peoples Democratic Party has again descended on former Head of State, Muhammadu Buhari, saying the leader of the opposition Congress for Progressive Change has become unstable and is being haunted by what it describes as “combat withdrawal syndrome.”

The party also described the retired army general as excesively blood thirsty.

In a hurriedly convened press conference, specially packaged to hurl insults at the former military leader, the PDP said Mr. Buhari is blood thirsty and accused him of inflaming the orgy of violence in the country.

Mr. Buhari was quoted as having declared on Monday that the Nigerian government, led by President Goodluck Jonathan of the ruling PDP, is more deadly than the extremist Boko Haram sect.

Mr. Buhari also reportedly said the government is a greater plague to Nigerians than the terrorist Boko Haram which had been ravaging Nigeria with attacks, killing over 1,500 people since August 2009.

The ruling party’s spokesperson, Olisa Metuh, who addressed the conference, said Mr. Buhari’s frequent call for revolution portrays him as one suffering from “Combat Withdrawal Syndrome.”

The PDP therefore advised the Federal Government to recall the retired general to the Army and make him the leader of the military mission being planned for Mali “to help him ease his quest for blood.”

    Buhari is spot on as the PDP led government don’t seem to see people’s reality caused by the various levels of corruption. It’s got so bad that the ruling party seem hell bent on looting every government budget going, whether federal, state or local government level.

    The ruling class are so busy shoving each other for “Their Turn”, they might not see the backlash coming. It almost gained momentum during the fuel subsidy saga, but people seem to give Jonathan another chance out of pure “luck of circumstance”.

    The problem is, the opposition isn’t credible enough for Nigeria to stand behind any “alternative” government. It’s like trying to choose the lesser of two evils. Most of the opposition voices are from near shady characters who have already ruled Nigeria in the distant past.

    They all don’t deserve a “Second Chance to Make Another First Impression To Nigerians”. We need fresh blood…FULL STOP!

      I AGREE COMPLETELY WITH YOU, BUT THIS IS NOT ANY EXCUSE FOR SPONSORING BOMBINGS AND VIOLENCE. ANY DESTRUCTION OF LIVES AND PROPERTY RUNS FOUL OF ANY SENSE OF OPPOSITION IN A DEMOCRACY.

    Most PDP members are blood suckers. There is no one who drink more blood than PDP members in this country. It is a party of killers, thieves, murderers, kidnappers and election riggers. Spare us your nonsense please…

    Your “news” reports are getting more and more subjective and editorializing has become a trade mark.

    Let me appeal to Rtd. Gen. Muhamadu Buhari to spare this country the consequences of his unnecessary utterances. As a former Head of State, his utterances, actions & deliberate inactions when it may matter, have all added up to put a strong question to the credibility of his earstwhile aclaimed profile. The top shots of the security agencies in and outside Nigeria need to beam comprehensive search light on Buhari. The Nation should be bigger than any one at all times. He certainly has skeltons in the cup board about various forms of violence in our country, especially in the Northern parts of our country, Including but not limited to Boko Haram. If Buhari has to be arrested and called to order, why not! Does Buhari watch other former leaders of this country, especially those of northern Nigeria extraction like him. I am considering Olisa Metu’s diagnosis of Buhari as very possible. The issue now is not about PDP, CPC, ACN or any party. There is gross threat to lives and property by bombings being sponsored by so called highly placed persons in our country. Any politician who wants to take over in 2015 should wait till political campaign time. That is how it should be.
