The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti State has described as a national disgrace and embarrassment President Muhammadu Buhari‘s reference to the year 2005 as the year of his assumption of office.
Buhari is reported to have made the statement while speaking at a presidential rally in Ekiti State on Tuesday.
The President had said in Ado Ekiti that, “I assure you that we are conscious of the promise we made, when we came into office in 2005.”
Director of Media and Publicity of the Atiku/Obi PDP Presidential Campaign Council in Ekiti State, Lere Olayinka, said in a statement that Nigerians should ask leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) how a man who can no longer remember when he assumed office should continue to govern Nigeria.
Olayinka said he was sure those still supporting President Buhari will never pray that God should give their children his kind of brain.
He said “Nigerians must not allow the cabal to impose calamity on the country for another four years.
“They knew even in 2015 that President Buhari lacked both mental and physical capacity to run any business venture and that explained why he could not cause his cows to increase from 150 for 12 years.
“For a President who went to Delta State to present the flag to his party’s governorship candidate as Presidential, Senatorial and Governortorial candidate and said in Ekiti State today that he assumed office in 2015, no lover of Nigeria will still be talking about his reelection.
“If he cannot remember when he assumed office, can he remember his responsibilities as a President? Can he remember the insecurity in the Northeast and other parts of the country? Can he remember that a bag of rice that he met at N7,000 is now N21,000?
“Nigerians must, therefore, rise to save the country from the cabal whose only interest is to hold on to power, using a glaringly weak brain President.”
