The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says President Bola Tinubu and the All Progressives Congress (APC) lack the capacity and competence to lead Nigeria.

The party took a swipe at the federal government and the APC “for casting aspersions” on governors elected on its platform.

PDP governors had asked for the resignation of President Bola Tinubu over the economic hardship in the country.

“Our Party restates its position that the APC and the Tinubu administration are responsible for the current biting economic hardship and surging wave of insecurity across the country as they are completely overwhelmed and lack the capacity and competence to lead a nation like Nigeria,” the statement issued by Debo Ologunagba, PDP spokesperson, reads.


The opposition party said Tinubu “cannot guarantee security” and that his “administration has devastated our national economy, resulting in extreme hunger, hopelessness and desperation as evident in the protests, agitation and rising spate of suicide across the country”.

“Every Nigerian is lamenting the terrible situation which President Tinubu’s ill-informed and ill-implemented policies have brought upon the nation,” the PDP said.

“President Tinubu is directly in charge of security and the national economic policies including administration of petroleum resources as Minister of Petroleum Affairs, other national revenues and cannot transfer his incompetence and failure to other tiers of Government which have no control over national security, fiscal and monetary policies, which mismanagement by President Tinubu’s government has crippled our economy.


“It is an assault on the sensibility of Nigerians that instead of charging the government it formed to live up to its billings, the APC is seeking a sordid and depraved approach to divert public attention from its failures.”

The party claimed that only PDP governors and other elected PDP public officials are “commissioning legacy and life-enriching projects and programmes, repositioning their states”, and driving development.
