The Peoples Democratic Party has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of caring less about the welfare of Nigerians.It stated that Buhari was detached and aloof from the issues that concern the average Nigerian.
The Director, Media and Publicity, PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation, Kola Ologbondiyan, said this in a statement on Wednesday.
Ologbondiyan also said the PDP’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar’s show of love and intervention in the life of Aisha Haruna, the 13-year-old orphan from Daura, Katsina State, who was involved in an inferno, was a reflection of his personality as a sensitive leader who cares about the plight of the citizens.
He said, “The PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation laments that President Muhammadu Buhari is detached and aloof from the issues that concern the average Nigerian that he never cared about Aisha’s plight, though she hails from his town, Daura, Katsina State.
“It is sad that President Buhari, who postures as pro-poor, took no step to show an iota of concern for a citizen like Aisha in her critical condition which was in the public domain, yet he is expecting votes from her distraught parents and relatives.
“The fact remains that Nigerians have made up their minds to rally behind Atiku Abubakar, who understands and identifies with them in their challenges and this determination is daily reinforced by the continued show of incompetence, disdain and arrogance by the Buhari Presidency
“While President Buhari cares less about the good of Nigerians but promised them more hardship in the coming year, the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, offers hope, having worked out templates to revamp our economy, revitalise our ailing infrastructure and raise the living standard and purchasing powers of all Nigerians.”
