Integrity: Buhari playing to gallery – PDP
National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus and President Muhammadu Buhari
The party while reacting to the President’s statement, said rather jump to form a new cabinet, President Buhari should await the ruling of the election tribunal to determine the legitimacy or otherwise of the mandate upon which he intends to appoint new Ministers.
Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the party, Diran Odeyemi in a chat with our correspondent Sunday said by the statement, the President has admitted that outgoing ministers did not merit their appointments in the first place.
He said: “The President needs not be in a hurry to form a cabinet. It took him more than five months to appoint ministers when he was elected in 2015, so why is he in a hurry? He is just playing to the gallery.
“Majority of Nigerians opine that he is a product of rigged election this time and for that reason, he must wait patiently for the tribunal’s ruling before thinking of new ministers.”
According to the publicity scribe, Nigerians are not fooled and will continue to demand justice for its President candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar “because they know he was shortchanged.”
He continued: “If the President said the new ministers will be men of integrity, is he now saying those he appointed in 2015 lacked the virtue? Nigerians can now see what the PDP has been saying all the while. The All Progressives Congress, APC-led administration was a mistake and Nigerians have done well to reject with the power of their vote.” (Vanguard)
