The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has said the comment by President Muhammadu Buhari on the defection of Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State to the All Progressives Congress, APC, smacks of dereliction of duty and “political scavenging” by the Presidency.

PDP said the Presidency statement also exposed how Nigeria was brought to her knees as compelling demands of office are made to suffer while the Presidency gloats over trivial issues.

A statement by Kola Ologbondiyan, described Buhari’s action in abandoning the responsibilities of his office, “at this critical time, to focus on personal partisan adventure of an individual, as a misplacement of energy.”

According to Ologbondiyan: “The development further exposes Mr. President’s incompetence and poor understanding of the tenets of leadership, statesmanship and expectations of his office.

“We hold as appalling that the Buhari Presidency is showing more urgency in commenting on political adventures rather than expressing concern on the reported kidnapping of 12 senior police officers by bandits.

“The party observed that if President Buhari had used the same urgency he displayed in commenting on Governor Umahi’s defection to address the issue of police brutality, the crisis situation, death, arson, destruction of public and private property witnessed in the aftermath of the End SARS protest would have been averted.

“Indeed, if Mr. President had shown similar urgency towards the demand for the rejigging of our national security architecture, we would have averted the escalated insurgency, kidnapping and bloodletting ravaging our country today.

“In the same vein, if President Buhari had used the same urgency to respond to the call to reorganize his economic team, end the corruption in his government as well as address the frightening upsurge in unemployment under his watch, our nation would not be in this sorry state as the poverty capital of the world.”
