PDP blames Covid-19 spread on Buhari’s delay in shutting down borders, airports


The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has blamed the frightening level of Coronavirus (Covid-19) spread in the Country on President Muhammadu Buhari delay in shutting down the nation’s borders and airports.


In  a statement signed by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, the former ruling party expressed disappointment that Buhari failed to offer post lockdown stimulus to Nigerians in the private sector.

He described President Muhammadu Buhari’s nationwide speech as appalling for failing to offer solutions to the COVID-19 challenge facing Nigerians.

According to him, The party insisted that had Buhari heeded this demand by Nigerians at the onset of the pandemic, the situation would not have escalated to this frightening level with no solution in sight.

The statement: “The PDP is appalled that President Buhari, in his Monday’s COVID-19 address, again, failed to offer decisive solutions to protect Nigerians from the deadly pandemic.

“We express disappointment that President Buhari did not offer any post lockdown stimulus to assist Nigerians in the private sector whose businesses had been crippled by the lockdown and are now faced with the burden of workers’ salaries and business refinancing”.

PDP lamented that “apart from the elementary lockdown and failed palliative showboating, President Buhari did not offer a decisive solution regarding the production of drugs, testing kits and management of equipment to safeguard Nigerians, despite the huge resources at the disposal of his administration.
