PDP tells Buhari to take cue from Biden, address nepotism

 PDP tells Buhari to take cue from Biden, address nepotism

The Peoples Democratic Party has urged the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari(retd.), to take lessons from the post-election remarks of the President-elect of the United States, JoeBiden, by addressing the divisiveness, nepotism, and marginalisation which have become the hallmarks of his regime.

This was contained in a statement titled, “US Election: PDP Congratulates Joe Biden, Americans…Says US Election is a Lesson To Leaders,” signed by the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, in Abuja, on Sunday.

The party congratulated the US President-elect, Joe Biden, on his successful election as the 46th President of the United States.

It commended the Americans for a successful and peaceful election which it said adhered strictly to democratic principles and extant laws of their country, despite the intense competition.

Ologbondiyan said, “The election is a lesson to leaders that power resides with the people and that there is a limit to how any individual can hold a people to ransom.

“Our party holds that the United States’ Presidential election presents lessons to our emerging electoral system, particularly on the independence of the electoral body as well as showing respect for the rights of the citizens to democratically choose their leaders, irrespective of preferences or predilections of incumbents.

“Indeed, the manifest non-interference by the security forces and the judiciary in the US election calls out the current situation in our country where security agencies and compromised judicial officers are used to muzzle election and subvert the will of the people as largely witnessed in the last five years, particularly in the 2019 general elections.
