Considering this session of felicitations, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on Nigerians not to insult the President no matter the prevailing circumstance facing the nation.
The party in a statement said Nigerians should not lose sense of decorum because of the frustration in the land.
According to the party: “Whilst we understand the indignation, frustration and disappointments occasioned by the long list of unfulfilled promises and dashed expectations under the current regime (and justifiably so), we urge that Nigerians should not recourse to hauling insults on the President as such would not bring the succour they seek.
“The challenges we face today as a nation should not make us lose our dignity and demureness as a people. They should not make us miss the essence and meanings of Eid-El-Maulud and Christmas and the divine succour they bring, especially the assurance that there is always an end to every negative situation.
“Nigerians across board have in the last few weeks been recalling the campaign promises made by President Buhari and the APC, particularly, their December 24, 2014 Christmas message wherein they promised several reforms and welfare programmes that will, in their own words, ‘begin to positively impact on the citizenry within its (APC) first few months at the helm, to such an extent that Nigerians will have a better Christmas celebration in 2015″
The party though its national publicity secretary, Olisa Metuh, said the nation should use this year’s Eid-El-Maulud and Christmas to reflect and offer special prayers for the unity and stability of the nation.
The party therefore advised Nigerians, inividually and collectively, to commit security and economic welfare into the hands of God.
It stated prayers have become imperative in the face of the security and economic challenges facing the nation.
