While on Channels Television’s morning breakfast show, Sunrise Shehu had made the damning allegation, adding that Jonathan gave handover note to President Muhammadu Buhari 48 hours before the handover ceremony in 2015.

Reacting, the National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party described the admission as a clear display of incompetence.

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in a sharp response said the delay and the excuse were indicative of the incompetence manifesting in the present administration.

The PDP argued that the admission was very unfortunate as the Presidency may never stop peddling falsehood to cover its failures.

“It is a settled matter that President Buhari could not form a cabinet for over five months after his inauguration, primarily due to sheer incompetence, lack of preparedness and the fact that he was overwhelmed by the complexity of the office of the President of Nigeria.”

Reacting also, Dr Jonathan through his media adviser, Ikechukwu Eze, expressed concern over what he claimed as the unending habit of the Buhari administration even near election to blame the past administration for its perceived failures.

He said: “Assuming, without conceding, that the last administration was as bad as they want Nigerians to believe, is it not a fact of governance that it is the duty of every responsible administration to seek to make better the situation it met on ground? Anything less than that is a proof of incompetence for which a failed administration has no moral justification to ask for a fresh mandate.

“While members of the current administration continue to blame President Jonathan for their failure to deliver on their mandate, they should be reminded that there are many African success stories that proved that a progress-minded administration has no business focusing only on the past.”
