President Buhari had yesterday failed to deliver any speech after taking his oath of office.

But in its assessment of activities on inauguration day, the PDP through its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said Buhari’s action showed his “insensitivity and the level of derision” with which his handlers and party hold Nigerians.

The major opposition party said the failure of Buhari and the ruling party to make any commitment at the ceremony reinforced the “truism that a product of flawed electoral process cannot serve the people or meet their aspirations under a constitutional democracy”.

“The poor attendance and passivity of the audience at the ceremony at a time that Nigerians were trooping, in their millions, to the inauguration of state governors elected on the platform of the PDP, manifestly show,” the statement read.

“It is indeed pathetic that at a ceremony such as presidential inauguration, where truly elected leaders address their people, make commitments and unfold their governance direction, President Buhari did not showcase his plans or commitment to the development of critical sectors of our polity.

“It also speaks volumes that President Buhari had nothing to say to the victims of mindless killings and acts of violence in various parts of our country.

“Moreover, he had no directions toward stemming the economic distress under his administration, for which Nigerians are now resorting to suicide and slavery mission abroad as options.”

It is however, not clear if the President would deliver any address on June 12, since the presidency had moved major events to that date.
