PDP to Buhari: Image laundering in Morocco, a mockery

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has dismissed the image rescue effort by President Muhammadu Buhari before Moroccan Prime Minister, Saadeddine Othman, as a poorly packaged deception to sugarcoat his deep-seated disdain for Nigerian youths.
The party in a statement signed by its Spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, said the President’s sudden praise-singing of Nigerian youths in far away Morocco is only a desperate afterthought aimed to reverse the public opprobrium he earned when described Nigerian youths as “lazy youths and lovers of freebies”.
“Every Nigerian is aware of President Buhari’s disdain for our citizens and see his reported comments in Morocco as inconsistent with his known beliefs and dispositions.
“Nigerians recall that in a most recent gaffe, Mr President described the members of our National Assembly as idle and unproductive just as he dismissed our youths as unfit to run for Presidency in 2019, even while signing the “Not- Too- Young- To- Run” bill into an Act.
The PDP said the statement in Morocco cannot wash away the disgraceful invectives he openly poured on the energetic and vivacious Nigerian youths at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM), where most of the world leaders were present.
“He would need another CHOGM in London to remove his lazy and lover of freebies stamp on our youths. The PDP is aware of the desperate bid by President Buhari to stop at nothing to beguile the citizens once again that election is around the corner.
“President Buhari should therefore end his gimmicks and let go of straws. He should amply come to terms with the fact that the only expectation Nigerians require of him is to tender a direct apology for his abysmal performance and get prepared to leave the stage for a more innovative, and people-oriented President which Nigerians will elect on the platform of the PDP, come 2019”.
