Buhari’s independence speech a mockery of democracy -Buhari


The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described President Muhammadu Buhari’s Independence Day address as an insult on Nigerians.

In a statement, Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP spokesman, described Buhari’s broadcast as a “mockery of democracy which further confirmed that the country is in wrong hands”.

He said Buhari failed to address the key issues of freedom, social justice, constitutional order, rule of law, credible elections, accountability, among others.

The party also claimed that Buhari had no forceful reassurances on the challenge of escalated insecurity under his watch.

Ologbodiyan stressed that if anything, Buhari only succeeded in demonstrating that his administration is in no position to deliver “a credible, acceptable and satisfactory address”.

The party, however, urged Nigerians not to despair but keep hope alive.
