The main opposition party in the country, Peoples Democratic Party has disclosed that the party is worried over the alleged collapse of All Progressive Party led federal government over coronavirus.
Recall that president Muhammadu Buhari’s Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari had tested positive for coronavirus.
The PDP has called on Buhari to save the country from unneeded confusion, by addressing the citizens over the governance structure, now that Kyrai had been isolated.
The PDP National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, in a statement said, “The PDP is worried that Nigerians are now at a loss regarding who the cabinet ministers and other officials of the Federal Government currently report to, a development that has sparked apprehensions of a collapse of governance command structure at the Federal Executive.
“Already, there is heightened public apprehensions that the development could have been the reason behind the cancellation of Tuesday and Wednesday’s scheduled Federal Government’s briefing on the COVID-19 pandemic thereby denying Nigerians much needed update on issues relating to the coronavirus disease.
“The party notes that Nigerians are distressed that Buhari has remained silent on the spread of COVID-19 and has failed to address the nation since some Presidency officials, as well as some state governors and other high profile officials and individuals reportedly tested positive to the virus.”
Ologbondiyan said, “Our party wants President Buhari to note that, what Nigerians expect of him at this point in our history is to end his silence, be visible and take up the challenge of personally leading in governance, particularly in this fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, like other leaders across the globe.
“The PDP also counsels President Buhari to wake up and engage other world leaders, international bodies and global health sector stakeholders for solution.”
