The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has come out to say that Nigerians would like to hear from their President amid the coronavirus.
In a recent statement issued by spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP revealed that the SGF has caused major confusion with his recent comments on Buhari not addressing the nation today.
According to him, the recent scrapping of a nationwide broadcast amid the pandemic is a clear sign of abuse of our statutory offices and abdication of responsibilities by President Buhari.
PDP added that Buhari should end the confusion in the polity by addressing his people in his official capacity to fulfill the demands of our laws in respect of the necessary protocols on restrictions and other management procedures in the fight against the spread of COVID-19 pandemic in our country.
“The SGF has brought serious confusion in the polity regarding the legality or otherwise of the directives contained in the SGF’s announcement.”
“Our nation is a state governed by dictates of the law, particularly in the exercise of powers vested in statutory offices, especially that of the President.
“The PDP holds that the announcement by the SGF is, therefore, another manifestation of abuse of our statutory offices arising from the abdication of responsibilities by President Buhari since the last five years, which had also become more pronounced in this fight against COVID-19.
“Our party, therefore, invites Mr President to end the confusion in the polity, arising from the action of the SGF, by immediately addressing Nigerians in his official capacity to fulfil the demands of our laws in respect of the necessary protocols on restrictions and other management procedures in the fight against the spread of COVID-19 pandemic in our country.”
