The leading opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said President Buhari was running his government as a “sole administrator” making important decisions on national affairs without recourse to relevant statutory arms of government.
The Party also accused the President of traveling from one country to another instead of focusing on the issues of governance, adding that he should give account of his spending since the inauguration on May 29, this year.
Addressing a press conference Sunday in Abuja, PDP national publicity secretary, Olisa Metuh said the party is making the demand because since the APC took office, the nation’s financial system in the absence of statutory functionaries has been “enmeshed in confusion, controversy and fertile atmosphere for financial sleazes.”
The PDP also accused Buhari of dividing the country’s polity along sectional and religious lines, stressing it may trigger a return of quest for ethnic and sectional self-determination.
