Chieftain Of PDP To PDP Leaders: Let’s Run A Responsible Opposition To Buhari Please

Shehu Gadam
A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Shehu Gabam has cautioned the leaders of the party to learn to run a responsible opposition rather than just finding ways of running down President Muhammadu Buhari.
Gabam, who was Chief of staff to former Governor Isa Yuguda of Bauchi State, said at an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), that it would not speak well of the PDP leadership to be blindly criticising every step taken by the President, who he said has good intentions for the country.
He stressed that there is no need for the opposition to start bombarding him the President with unnecessary and distractive comments just so that PDP would continue to maintain some relevance.
“I believe the president should be allowed to determine his own pace of speed and also determine his own cruising level. As an opposition party, we should be monitoring him with a lot of maturity, and a lot of respects for him.
“He is the president of the country whether you voted him or not, he is the President of Nigeria. The institution of presidency must be respected, and I am among one of those who always appeal that everybody should respect the position of the presidency.”
Gabam said said that the fact that differ with the President on operational issues, policies and programmes should not be taken to mean that he has no capacity to move the country forward.
“Even then, PDP leadership should learn to take him (President Buhari) up on any issues on which thy differed in a sense of decency “and not to be rascals in our approach.
“As for me, nobody should insult the president, nobody should insult the institution of the presidency.”
The PDP chieftain however called on President Buhari not to run a government that is purely investigative, but a government that will alleviate the suffering of the people.
According to him, there are too many issues this country is looking forward to for his proper attention.
“The President should, therefore, be sensitive to the needs and aspirations of the people.” [myad]
