Buhari’s June 12 Broadcast, A Slap on Democracy.
…Says President’s Silence on Violations Vindicates Our Party’s Stance

The @OfficialPDPNig describes the President @MBuhari’s Democracy Day address as a huge and unpardonable slap on the face of our nation’s democratic process. https://t.co/OfKHsJ4UfQ

Our party stresses that President @MBuhari’s silence on the values of democracy as well as the myriads of violations under his watch has further vindicated its stance and that of majority of Nigerians that…

… the @MBuhari administration has no regard for democracy and is not prepared to uphold its tenets in our country.

The @OfficialPDPNig notes that on the day Mr. President himself set aside to celebrate democracy, he had no democratic scorecard to present; thereby directly confirming that he had taken no step to uphold democratic practice in the last five years.

Our party invites Nigerians to note that Mr. President’s speech had no space for Chief MKO Abiola. This only goes to show that the Buhari Presidency and the @OfficialAPCNg…

… have no regard for Chief Abiola and the essence of June 12, but only used their nomenclature to gain selfish political capital.

It is scandalous that on a day like this, President @MBuhari had no assurances on electoral reforms and credible election; which is the hallmark of democracy.

Also, Mr. President had no words of assurance towards respect for our constitution, particularly the principles of separation of powers, federal character, equality, equity, fairness, transparency and respect for the sensibilities of our federal structure.

Furthermore, President @MBuhari had no words of commitment on how to tackle the constitutional and human rights violations under his watch, including reported intimidation and brutalization of citizens, disobedience to court orders, arbitrary arrests, illegal detentions,…

… extra-judicial killings as well as hounding of opposition and dissenting voices.

Rather, Mr. President and his handlers sought to divert attention from their failures and violations associated with this administration by taking the nation on a merry-go-round of recycled false performance claims that are not backed by any empirical or verifiable data.

By this speech, President @MBuhari failed to appreciate that the progress of any nation is hinged on credible elections, equity, justice and adherence to rule of law.

Moreover, Nigerians have been at shock that while bandits were busy killing our compatriots in Katsina, Kaduna, Zamfara, Borno, Kogi and various parts of our nation, even on the eve of his broadcast, President @MBuhari was claiming that his government had secured the nation.

It is even more distressing that Mr. President opted to use the COVID-19 pandemic to make excuses for the attack by the bandits even as he had no soothing words or decisive assurances for the victims beyond a cold passing comment lacking in expected human empathy.

The @OfficialPDPNig however urged Nigerians not to resign to despondency or allow the failures and violations of the @OfficialAPCNg administration to erode their faith in our democracy but remain united in their commitment to the stability of our nation.
