Body bag comment: Take your frustration to Buhari, PDP tells El-Rufai

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has cautioned Kaduna State governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, advising him to channel his frustration towards President Muhammadu Buhari instead of inviting violence in the country.

The PDP made this statement just a day after El-Rufai stated that foreigners who interfere in Nigeria’s affairs will leave in body bags.

Reacting to the governor’s words, the PDP national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan condemned his outburst via a statement.

The statement read, “It is quite revealing that El-Rufai, who exposed General Buhari in 2010 as ‘unelectable’ is now prancing about in defence of Buhari’s incompetent and anti-democratic administration, to the extent of issuing death threats to others, just to secure his place under a dictatorial administration.

“Governor El-Rufai had in 2010 described General Buhari as ill- equipped for modern day governance. He berated General Buhari of lacking capacity to comprehend current trends, to the extent that he would think that a blackberry was a fruit.

“In his reply to General Buhari’s response to his earlier criticisms, El-Rufai stated: ‘Mallam El-Rufai wishes to remind General Buhari that he has remained perpetually unelectable because his record as military Head of State, and afterwards, is a warning that many Nigerians have wisely heeded. His insensitivity to Nigeria’s diversity and his parochial focus are already well-known.

“In 1984, Buhari allowed 53 suitcases belonging to his ADC’s father to enter Nigeria unchecked at a time the country was exchanging old currency for new…..

“Buhari was so high- handed that he gave himself and his officials immunity even from truthful reporting. That obnoxious Decree 4, against which truth was no defence, was used to jail journalists and attempt to cow the media as a whole. That tyrannical legislation shows the essence of his intolerance. These are facts of recent history. The story of counter-trade and import licensing, the cornerstone of Buhari’s stone-age economic strategy and those whose interests it served, is a tale for another day”.

The statement added that “today, President Buhari’s inept and colossally corrupt administration has wrecked our once robust economy, divided our nation, instituted executive high-handedness, violation of human rights, incessant breach of our constitution, disobedience of court order, assaults on our democratic institutions, clamp down of the media and dissenting voices, a scenario that has brought so much pain and anguish for Nigerians.”
