Promote Unity Not Insult Buhari, PDP Urges Nigerians

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has urged citizens to pray for the unity and stability of Nigeria instead of hurling insults on President Muhammadu Buhari while celebrating this yuletide.

The PDP in a statement on Thursday by the party’s spokesperson, Mr Olisa Metuh, charged Nigerians to use this year’s Eid-El-Maulud and Christmas to recommit their individual and collective security as well as economic welfare into the hands of God.

According to the party, “The special prayers have become essential as the nation is now, more than ever before, in dire need of divine intervention, especially as citizens cope with the sudden hardship occasioned by poor management of the nation’s economy in the last seven months.”

PDP said that the two important celebrations,coming at a trying time, offers the people an opportunity to put aside their political, religious and ethnic differences and unite against their prevailing common challenges.

“Nigerians across board have in the last few weeks been recalling the campaign promises made by President Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC), particularly their December 24, 2014 Christmas message wherein they promised several reforms and welfare programmes that will, in their own words, ‘begin to positively impact on the citizenry within its (APC) first few months at the helm, to such an extent that Nigerians will have a better Christmas celebration in 2015.

“Whilst we understand the indignation, frustration and disappointments occasioned by the long list of unfulfilled promises and dashed expectations under the current regime (and justifiably so), we urge that Nigerians should not recourse to hauling insults on the President as such would not bring the succour they seek.

“The challenges we face today as a nation should not make us lose our dignity and demureness as a people. They should not make us miss the essence and meanings of Eid-El-Maulud and Christmas and the divinesuccour they bring, especially the assurance that there is always an end to every negative situation.

“The PDP therefore, calls on all Nigerians to use the occasions to reflect on those things that bind us together as a nation; show love toone another and commit the nation into God’s hands, even as we charge the political class to be conscious of divine accountability in all their dealings,” the statement read.
