The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described the fight between the First Lady, Aisha Buhari and President Muhammadu Buhari’s cousins, as disgraceful.
The opposition party said the fight over rooms at the Presidential Villa, further underlined why Buhari’s government had allegedly been bedevilled by confusion and no progress.
A video trending on social media had shown Aisha quarrelling with the family members of Buhari’s cousin, Mamman Daura.
Aisha has since confirmed that the video was real.
Responding in a statement on Tuesday, the PDP argued that the chaos in the Villa further exposed the Buhari
Presidency’s poor management of issues and highlighted why it had “failed monumentally in delivering on any of its responsibilities in governance, thus leaving our dear nation in a shambolic situation in the last five years.”
The statement released by the party’s national spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan read in detail:
“The feud further uncovers the impunity, disorderliness and vanity that pervade the Buhari Presidency and how the once serious and productive seat of power has been turned into a house of comedy and an overcrowded quarter for illegal occupants.
“Nigerians can now see why it has become difficult for our nation to witness any stability or progress under the Buhari Presidency and why the Buhari-led Federal Government has been bedeviled by confusion, infighting, policy flip-flops, statutory violations, promotion of violence, ingrained corruption and administrative indolence while millions of Nigerians wallow in poverty and neglect.
“Nigerians and the world can equally see why no one expects the Buhari Presidency to articulate any progressive idea or proffer and implement any solution to the myriad of economic and security problems it caused our nation.
“They can now see why there is no hope in sight and why compatriots are daily agitating for a new order.”
The party added that Buhari and his All Progressives Congress (APC) had disgraced Nigerians ‘enough’.
It further asked Buhari to “immediately apologize to Nigerians for his failures and be ready to vacate office for more competent hands, since it has become obvious that he is leading our country to nowhere.”
