The Peoples Democratic Party has described President Muhammadu Buhari and the ruling All Progressives Party, as the perfect example of arrogance in failure.
The National Publicity Secretary, Hon. Debo Ologunagba, said in a statement on Sunday “President Buhari presides over the most rudderless, corrupt, disunited, disorganized, arrogant political party and government in the history of our country; a fact that is already established by Nigerians across board.”
He said that the statement was PDP’s reaction to comments by the President while trying to intervene in the crisis rocking the APC.
The PDP described the APC administration led by President as a “failure which has brought unprecedented economic hardship, chaos, escalated insecurity, a state of anomie and hopelessness in our country in the last six years.”
President Buhari had cautioned the leadership of APC embroiled in internal conflict to learn ‘lessons  of disunity, mismanagement and corruption from the PDP’ which he said failed in 16 years in power, and a failure as opposition.’
But Ologunagba said Buhari should have known that what is “enfeebled and adrift”, plagued by ‘disunity, mismanagement and corruption”, “arrogance of power” and “self-aggrandizement’ is the  evidently mismanaged and mutating crisis/ridden the APC and not the PDP.”

He said, “It is important to educate Mr. President on the arrogance of power in his refusal to timeously appoint an economic team or listen to wise counsel on the economy and security. This is why he completely mismanaged our national affairs and turned our nation into the poverty capital of the world and the third country with the highest level of terrorism according to the World Terrorism Index.

“Such arrogance of power is manifesting in President Buhari and APC’s refusal to accept failure for the near collapse of our economy from the $550 billion economy (largest in Africa and 26th globally) handed over to them in 2015 by the PDP; the fall of the Naira from about N197 to a dollar to almost N600 today and the hike in petrol price from N87 per liter in 2015 to between N300 andN400 per liter today.
“In addition to this, the price of diesel which is a critical component in the productive sector of the economy now stands at inconceivable N700 per liter under the APC.
“Is it not arrogance of power that informed the Buhari-led APC administration to import contaminated fuel, induce agonizing fuel scarcity on our citizens and yet had the effrontery to tell Nigerians that “heaven will not fall” over the fuel situation?”
The PDP Spokesman said that it was arrogance of power that made the APC to refuse to obey court orders, the repeated refusal of the President to sign the electoral Act, and the importation of adulterated fuel with an audacious claim that nothing would would happen.
“The arrogance and impunity of the APC administration also accounted for its refusal to prosecute APC leaders indicted for corruption; the barefaced denial that no one was killed in the EndSARS protest despite national and international evidence of bloody massacre of our youths at the Lekki Tollgate as well as the failure to account for the billions of naira Covid-19 Funds stolen by APC leaders.

“This is in addition to the recent arrogant, corrupt and criminal removal of electricity subsidy without reference to Nigerians among other thoughtless and inhumane actions of the APC government.” He added
He said that it was rather shocking that the President who confirmed the APC as a party of irreconcilable politicalwarlords, would look elsewhere for a lesson in “disunity, mismanagement and corruption”.
He stated further that the President has so arrogantly mismanaged the APC that it is now plagued by two illegal national chairmen and multiple structures in States.

Ologunagba said that the APC has become enfeebled to the extent that it cannot conduct a valid National Convention or produce legitimate candidates for elections, with its activities no longer recognized by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The PDP Spokesman urged the President to to assist his party to wind up as Nigerians are now rallying on the platform of the united, cohesive, focused and dependable PDP in our mission to Rescue and Rebuild our nation from the arrogance and misrule of the Buhari APC government.“
