The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has asked President Muhammadu Buhari’s spokesperson, Garba Shehu, to go for a proper psychiatric examination following his attempt to blame former “President Goodluck Jonathan’s men” for the return of fugitive Abdulrasheed Maina to the civil service.
The main opposition party, in an e-mailed statement to The Trent on Thursday, October 26, 2017 signed by Dayo Adeyeye, the publicity secretary of the PDP, described the attempt as the height of absurdity.
“We had earlier in our response on this matter advised the government to properly investigate those responsible for this mess and bring them to justice and we still stand on that, because Nigerians are tired of excuses and blame game,” Prince Adeyeye wrote.
“We reiterate that the body language of this APC government in the fight against corruption is mere propaganda and road-show. The idea of blaming every misdemeanour on previous administration is symptomatic of the failure to deliver on promises and its time Garba Shehu and his likes resigns if they have nothing more to contribute in government.
“Finally, we urge the APC led government to re-evaluate the inclusion of the likes of Garba Shehu in the administration. A man who is fixated on blaming each and every mistake of this government on the PDP has certainly run out of ideas, and must even have lost the capacity for rational thinking. We wonder the damage he may be causing to this country with his continuous stay as an Assistant to the President,” the statement ended.
