The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has reacted to the latest letter written by former President Olusegun Obasanjo to President Muhammadu Buhari describing the former’s action as patriotic.
The PDP, in a statement by Kola Ologbondiyan, its national spokesperson, said the party is now vindicated over its constant complaints of the security challenges facing the country.
“The PDP describes the open letter as patriotic, momentous and captures the apprehensions of majority of Nigerians across the board,” the party said.
It also urged President Buhari to “read between the lines and listen to the voice of reason from well-meaning Nigerians at this moment.”
The opposition organisation said it was worried that the nation, which grew in leaps and bounds in all sectors before the All Progressives Congress (APC) took over in 2015, is now dangerously sliding on all fronts.
“The PDP therefore counsels President Buhari to listen to the pulse of our nation; accept his failure and seek help from other well-meaning Nigerians so as to take back our nation from this imminent precipice,” the party advised.
The party also called on all Nigerians across the divides, irrespective of creed, ethnicity and political leaning, to close ranks, eschew all primordial and parochial interests and work together for the stability of the nation.
