​​PDP ​says Buhari “indifferent” to burning national issues

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has expressed deep concerns over the apparent indifference of the President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari​,​ to burning national issues threat​en​ing the unity and stability of the country.

​The ​PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh​,​ in a statement on Wednesday said “while well-meaning Nigerians and the international community are celebrating the peace fostered by the patriotic action of President Goodluck Jonathan in conceding defeat, General Buhari and his party, the APC have been moving around the country instigating division, engineering crisis and heightening tension in the polity”.

“Whereas General Buhari had assured Nigerians that he would be the President of the entire nation and not of a political party, his actions in the last one week show otherwise as he has continued to display sectionalism and insensitivity to matters inimical to the survival of our democracy and wellbeing of Nigerians.

“Instead of settling down to plan a smooth transition and design ways of deepening democracy in appreciation of the mandate given to him, General Buhari has tacitly encouraged his men to foment crisis and cause panic in the bid to muzzle personal freedom and impose a reign of terror in the land.

“For instance, Gen. Buhari has remained indifferent to the crisis in Ekiti where outgoing APC lawmakers who are supposed to be campaigning for the renewal of their mandates on Saturday have been mobilized to Oshogbo in Osun state by the APC to perfect an ignoble plot to remove a democratically elected government in the state.

“APC’s ambition in Ekiti coupled with its odious triumphalism in the aftermath of the Presidential election have led to avoidable confrontations and near breakdown of law and order in the state as the people rise to defend the mandate freely given to the PDP.

“In continuation of this display of arrogance in victory, Buhari’s men in Lagos have dragged the revered traditional institution into the political fray with the Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwanu Akiolu threatening death to supporters of the PDP, an action that has brought outrage from Nigerians with General Buhari playing the ostrich.

“It is indeed unfortunate that while his men are causing crisis and threat​en​ing Nigerians, General Buhari, instead of calling them to order displays his insensitivity by jetting around the country campaigning for his party.

“If this sort of insensitivity and arrogance of victory are foretaste of what to expect in a Buhari presidency, then our dear nation and its people are headed for a long trek in the wilderness​,​” the statement said.

Defectors are saboteurs

Meanwhile, the PDP in reaction to reports of defection from its fold​,​ described the defectors as political Trojans, who from within have ceaselessly worked against the interest of the party and now fear that they would face sanctions for their actions.

Stating that it would not miss such fair weather members, the party commended the courage and steadfastness of all its supporters and members who have remained committed to the course and urged them to go a step further by emulating Senate President David Mark and Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu in speaking out public
​l​y in favour of the PDP, its ideals and visions of the founding fathers.

The PDP said adequate machinery is already in motion to reorganize and to reposition itself to regain power in the next four years since it is obvious that the APC lacks what it takes to effectively lead the nation.

It therefore called on Nigerians to use the Saturday’s election to demonstrate their commitment to democracy by voting enmasse for the PDP bearing in mind that a vote the party is a vote for the unity and stability of the country.

    Very soon Olisa Metuh will be left alone in the PDP as I am sure that president Jonathan and Fani Kayode will soon defect

    • Lenz

      It is true… He will be there by himself, maybe talking to the papers in his office…

      What is the problem of Buhari with Ekiti? Isn’t that PDP and Jonathan’s headache? In any case, impeachment or not is part and parcel of democracy…

  • Steve Oladeji

    People sometimes play dummy, this man was around when the so called legislators were chased away by the governor and his thugs, no one from the pdp inner caucus utter a word, they instead encourage the impunity by using police and soldiers to silence the opposition.( order from above) Now, you want help from someone you once ridiculed. The Ekiti governor has made his bed let him lie on it.

  • Suddenly playing opposition. What a world!

    • bikky

      In fact I will be happy if they can be a good and formidable opposition to APC so that we can have check and balance but where they start here did not show that they will be a good one because I don’t know what concern Buhari for now he has not being swearing-in.

  • aloy ehime

    People have been saying it. Now i believe it. APC is the owner of PREMIUM TIMES.
    Nobody can change my mind on it. Look this important story. Premium Times hide it.
    They did not put it on top of headline. Why? Because it exposes Muhammadu Buhari.
    But if it is President Jonathan coughing in public Premium Times will put it in headline.

      ….Christians are in big trouble

      See O, Adolf Hitler did pogrom on the Jews. Rwanda Hutu did genocide on Rwanda Tutsi.
      Now, Oba Rilwanu Akiolu wants to do BOTH pogrom and genocide together on Christians.
      And Mohammadu Buhari does NOT condemn Oba Akiolu, just because they are both Muslims.
      Can you see now? See how Yoruba Christians went and voted pogrom-genocide on themselves.
      People who have knowledge had told us here that APC is an Islamic Jihad disguised as a party.
      Yoruba Christians did not listen at that time. They have seen it now. They are in real trouble!

        Buhari won the popular votes in the election but failed ‘constitutional eligibility’ test

        certificate of affidavit to INEC, contrary to Section 137 [1] of the 1999 Constitution
        of Nigeria. The penalty stipulated in the constitution for this offence is: ‘dis-qualification’.

        There is nothing to be seen that we the yorubas have not seen, it you and your tribe that need to open your eyes well, so that you can see. Unfortunately, you remained blind and may not see, could be that by the time your eyes are open, the rest of the world would have moved so fast ahead of you. It is not compulsary that you remain in Lagos, or dont you come from somewhere/ why then are you so afraid to live withing your domain, Go back to your land, go, may be your governors would start developing your states just as we have in the south west, dont preach jihad to us. Your so call christian brother Jonathan has nothing better to offer, the best that came from him was the pollarisation of CAN. he even introduced money and bribery into the church, and you want to tell me that there is nothing worst than that, common get off it.

            I consider every thing you said about oil as an absolute bull*shit cos I went to school with my parents sweat and struggles and never benefited a single free notebook throughout my years from secondary school to university so I always wonder when some of you talk about some oil that you’re kind of high on if you even know what you’re talking about, the road in front of my house has been untarred since 1990, yet as a Lagos tax payer I can categorically say South -west people are self made and not in need of any oil to survive as you mentioned there

            Have you heard, that the Internally Generated Tax revenue in Lagos and Ogun which is contributed to the Federal Government is more than half of that contributed by the entire country talking about South East and Northern states put together, do you know what that means, dependable people!

            so pls stop that Oodua or Arewa people need oil to survive stories, they are infact meaningless, be intelligent enought and research the Nigerian society well before making such comments, it is infact the other way round compared to your assertions…thank you!

          • omoba

            Paying for what and why would he pay for the people whose principal caretaker refused to be responsible, but would rather push or shift hie responsibility to another person. Obi the former governor of Anambra failed woefully in his responsibilities to take care of his people, he wanted another father to do so for him, which he refused. had the people remained appreciative, may be a nd may be the story may have been diffrent, afterall several of the same tribes are being sheltered by the governor with little or no complain. but the iassue is that you can not continue play host to someone who will always abuse and worinst your interest at the end of the day, a stop has to be applied. Obi was simply playing game with his subjects, instead of taken care of the poor people, he chose to run to his master, Jonathan in Abuja for solution, can you imagine such an irresponsibility, yet his people, the same people did not see anything wrong in that but would rather blame an outsider. what a people who has been badly hit by poverty, they just could not think right again! Instead of fighting Fashola who is doing what his people want from him, me think that you guys should direct your search light on the activities of your imbecille governors, may be they will think of developing your land for you to return home, cause there is no place like home, all said and done.”teni ni teni” what do you expect the Kabiyesi to say or do apart from what he has said? play dumb?

        which trouble? Buhari is for now the president elect, so far he has no legal power or right to do what you are ignorantly asking him to do. till date,your uncle, Jonathan is still the president, so all questions should be directed to him, however my candid advise to you is to relocate quickly back to your state of origin, because you can not dictate to the yorubas in Lagos what they should do or not, they have chosen the president of their choice and would also go ahead to chose the governor of their choice provided that your uncle at Aso rock will not play the Ekiti game on Lagosians. who no please with that can vamoose go him country side, no be by force you go play guess to someone if your host say in no want you again.

The protest we see in Ekiti is the making of PDP who seek to destabilise 19 lawmakers in a house of 26. You cannot blame Buhari for Fayose’s mischieve. It is the same constitution that brought him as the Gov that brought them as members of Ekiti state assembly. They should respect each other.

    • Ken

      What is giving the Ekiti lawmakers the boldness to confront Fayose now? It is because Buhari won and he is encouraging them to cause trouble.

      • August January

        Shut up! What gave Fayose the audacity to make 7 greater than 19 if not Jonathan? What did Jonathan do when 7 lawmakers purportedly impeached the authentic speaker who has 18 members with him? What did Jonathan do when Fayose was governing the state with decisions taken by 7 lawmakers who could not possibly have formed a quorum that is supposed to be at least one-third (I.e., 8 members) to sit and take valid decisions, thereby denigrating the constitution and committing impeachable offences like working with illegal commissioners approved by an illegal 7-member House, running a budget passed by the same 7 members, etc?

      • Bimbo

        Yes, after 7 members were used to impeach the speaker in a house of 26 representatives!

        Good for everyone, at least they are doing it within the ambit of the Law. Unlike River State where they resort to hitting each other with the mace And fighting like hooligans in PDP style and mannerism.

  • Raqruq

    am lost here, is GMB the President or President elect

  • Abdulazeez Oyibo

    Address him as President first, and you would notice the difference between Commander in Chief and Commander in Thief.

    The PDP seriously itching to criticise Mr President-elect, they cannot even wit for his to be sworn in. Olisa Metuh should explain to us, if Buhari is now the spokesperson to Oba Akiolu or if Buhari should stop the rule of law, which the APC lawmakers are trying to uphold. If they have forgotten, let’s remind them that it is a PDP governor, Fayose that supported and empowered 7 lawmakers to impeach the speaker in a house of 26. Pdp and Metuh should study Alhaji Lai Mohammed ‘s statement to knw how to speak as an opposition party. Hopefully they’d learn.

  • Lawrence Azubuike

    Olisa Metuh, go and learn how to be a spokesman for an opposition party from Lai Mohammed. I believe he is just a phone call away from you

  • Fanen Harden

    PDP ​says Buhari “indifferent” to burning national issues. Has he become our president yet? Mr. Olisa sir, do not tell us that u sudenly forget the name of Nigeria 1st citizen as at now Dr. Ebele Azikiwe Goodluck Jonathan? I dont like elders who won’t do the right thing in a very staright-forward way. @ur age sir u should be after gaining a better name to the ears of we coming behind. Goodluck is trying to do that strongly just join him and maybe we may also turn around and start clapping for or dear sir Olisa Metuh……Thank u ur excellency sir.

  • Nuraddin

    Sir oliseh, just because you pdpigs have taken a deserved bashing from the oppressed and abused Nigerians and were shying away does not mean gallant APC will also sit and fold their hands before the last battle. Also remember GMB have a FULL FOUR YEARS MANDATE and the clock is yet to start ticking. As for Ekiti issue you conscience (if you have any) will answer you.

  • Lemmuel Odjay

    Long after the Igbo chiefs present at the Oba’s meeting where he was said to have made the caustic renark had “dined, wined and declared the remark as a joke”, here comes Olisa seeking to squeeze water from stone by latching desperately on an issue that has at best become academic. Again, hear him: “Ideal…vision…unity and stability…machinary in motion (for PDP) to reorganize and to reposition itself TO REGAIN POWER IN THE NEXT FOUR YEARS…” Dear brothers and sisters in the PDP, Olisa is deceiving you again. There are no such words in his lexicon as “ideal or unity or stability,” and as for you repositioning yourselves around the corridors of power in the next four years, you better not believe that pipe dream of his. He is hallucinating again. Please do not jump ship and move to the APC, because that party is bulging in the seams from excess luggage already. Something tells me you are just about to make that delicate switch-over move. I would rather you go to Jega, complete with forms and fountain pen and apply to form a new political party named “the Reformed PDP” (RPDP). Or better still, join your brethren in misfortune, the APGA, for like poles attract each other, if you know what I mean…?

    Sometimes it very difficult to understand this
    supposedly intelligent people in pdp talk. Why are you saying Buhari is
    insensitive to national issue now. Has Buhari taken over power?. Does Nigeria
    not having a sitting president?. Nigeria cannot have two presidents at a time.
    Jonathan is still actively in charge and should take responsibilities for day
    to day running of Nigeria. Do you expect Jonathan to give order and Buhari
    gives counter order? That is how you people confused Jonathan till the poor man
    failed woefully. For now Buhari has no
    business in directing affairs in Nigeria until 29 May 2015. Buhari did not give
    any order regarding Ekiti. The IG suddenly realised how partial he was and
    trying to make amends. I hope he did it
    to the best of the constitution of Nigeria.

    • STEVE

      As the leader of Apc and president elect, he has enormous responsibility to call his boys to order. If this nation goes up in flame,who is he going to govern? It is very obvious you re the one with low and infantile thinking ability. Pls be responsible.

      • Umar Nuhu Galadima

        U are d one who shld b responsible. The lawmakers are doin what is alowed in d constitution. The president elect will b doin injustice if he meddle into d affairs of d lawmakers

        • STEVE

          You are nothing but a demented scallywag, an ethnic jingoist and a hyperactive hypocrite. I still have your comments during the adamawa and nasarawa impeachment saga. NOTHING IS MORE DANGEROUS TO A SOCIETY THAN CONSCIENTIOUS STUPIDITY AND HYPOCRISY. Get a life.

      • Olu

        Just like Jonathan called the military to order and rigged Ekiti governorship election!
