The Peoples Democratic Party has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to stop blaming past governments and face governance squarely.
It reminded President Buhari and his party, the All Progressives Congress, that they were elected to better the lots of Nigeria and not to be blaming past governments every time.
The PDP stated this in its Eid-El-Kabir message to Nigerians, which was signed by its spokesperson, Dayo Adeyeye, and made available to journalists in Abuja on Sunday.
He said, “Mr. President in his Sallah message today, again blamed the present acute economic recession on the past administration and global economic downturn.
“Let Mr. President and his party, the APC, be reminded that it took a smart and experienced world-class Economic Team in the Year 2010 to lead Nigerians through a cushioned global financial meltdown and beyond.
“The ‘Change’ is really with them (APC) and their barrage of falsehood.
“They were elected to further better the lots of Nigerians, and not to dish out constant complaints on the situation which they mindlessly created not minding the attendant consequences of their
actions on our collective destinies.”
Adeyeye advised all Nigerians especially, the political and ruling class in the country to emulate “Father Abraham for his willingness and total obedience to the will of God by agreeing to sacrifice his only son”.
He advocated for good governance, peaceful co-existence and urged Nigerians to make sacrifices for
the greater good of the country.
He said, “We want to use this opportunity once again to celebrate and felicitate with all our Muslim brothers and sisters in Nigeria and across the world on this occasion of Eid-El-Kabir as instituted by Allah through Prophet Ibrahim.
“We want to also urge Nigerians to use this period and pray for the recovery of our ailing economy, the unity and oneness of this country and continue making sacrifices for Nigeria to become great again.”
