Buhari ranks most absentee President ever – PDP replies Oshiomhole’s comment on Ishaku

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Thursday said the National
Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole,
"misfired in his attempt to lampoon Taraba State Governor, Darius
Ishaku, as his claim of absentee leader best suits President Muhammadu
Buhari," and not the governor.

PDP made the remark while reacting to Oshiomhole's comment that APC
would give Taraba state a "resident governor" in 2019.

However, the spokesperson of PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, in a statement
said, "Unlike Governor Ishaku and other PDP governors, who are busy
developing their states, in line with the manifesto of the PDP,
President Buhari has spent more days gallivanting across the globe,
shopping for elusive international endorsements, than the time he
spent in actual governance of our nation.

"We know that Oshiomhole is distraught by the increasing popularity of
our party, and particularly the soaring approval rating of our
governors, including Governor Ishaku.

"We are not surprised by Oshiomhole's resort to childish mudslinging
and smear campaign, instead of concentrating on ways to solve the
problems he created in his derelict party, which is now stuck with an
unpopular Presidential candidate.

"Moreover, whereas President Buhari, APC's brand face, cannot boast of
any developmental project he has initiated and executed in the last
three years, Governor Ishaku has been busy commissioning projects that
have a direct bearing on the people in all critical sectors of their

"Also, while APC governors are only good at moulding statues,
commissioning boreholes and regular bus stops, PDP governors are
commissioning mega landmark projects, many of which President Buhari's
handlers lobbied for him to be allowed to cut the tape in an attempt
to shore up his performance rating before Nigerians and the
international community.

"Finally, since Oshiomhole has identified absenteeism as a major
defect for which a leader should be removed, we charge him to start
scripting his party's handover note ahead of 2019 election, as
President Buhari ranks as the most absentee leader in the history of
our nation."
