The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has urged Nigerians to ensure personal safety.
It claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari has ran out of ideas regarding COVID-19.
PDP said as the lockdown is relaxed, Nigerians should protect
themselves because Buhari and his government have no plans to rescue
them from the jaws of COVID-19.
A statement by PDP’s National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan
said Buhari had failed to find direction in the fight against the spread
of the virus.
PDP charged Nigerians not to “resign to fate and jeopardize their
lives following President Buhari’s failure to find direction in the
fight against the spread of COVID-19 in our country despite the huge
resources at his disposal.”
The opposition party also described the Presidential Task Foce on COVID-19 as incompetent.
PDP said Buhari Presidency and its “incompetent Presidential Task
Force (PTF) on COVID-19 had compounded the situation by crippling the
economy after which they are now leaving Nigerians to their fate without
providing any therapeutic or operable containment strategy to stem the
rising spread and fatalities of COVID-19 in our country.
“Our party notes that the inept leadership of Buhari Presidency
failed to engage our indigenous medical experts and manufacturers for
home grown solutions in therapeutics, test kits and ventilators; leading
to an avoidable spike of the pandemic in our country,” the party addef.
The gradual lockdown in Abuja, Lagos and Ogun States as directed by Buhari is expected to start today, May 4.
