President Tinubu’s Independence Day Speech Criticized by PDP as Bereft of Solutions

PDP’s Allegations Against President Tinubu

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused President Bola Tinubu of gross inefficiency, asserting that his leadership has subjected Nigerians to unnecessary hardships.

In addition, the opposition party criticized President Tinubu’s 63rd independence anniversary speech, characterizing it as lacking in ideas and indicative of his administration’s incapacity to manage Nigeria effectively.

Lack of Competence and Capacity

In a statement released by its national publicity secretary, Debo Ologunagba, the PDP asserted that President Tinubu and his team “lack the competence, capacity, required skills, and humaneness to effectively run the affairs of the nation.”

The party pointed to President Tinubu’s admission in his speech that his administration was responsible for the current hardships in the country as validation of their position.

Lack of Solutions and Vision

The PDP expressed disappointment with President Tinubu’s speech, noting that it failed to provide concrete solutions to critical challenges facing the nation.

These challenges include security, the crisis in the electricity and petroleum sectors, and the continuous fall of the Naira against the Dollar.

The PDP argued that a serious government with vision and capacity would have presented a comprehensive plan to address these issues.

Economic Failures and Job Losses

The PDP further criticized the ill-planned policies of the current administration, stating that they led to a catastrophic economic failure with crippling effects on the productive sector and job losses.

Multinational companies exited the country, small and medium enterprises suffered, and the loss of jobs became widespread.

Lack of Reassurance on Security

President Tinubu’s speech was also criticized for its lack of reassurance regarding the security situation in the country.

The PDP pointed out that there was no mention of the mindless killings, abductions, and mass burials of citizens in various parts of the country under his watch.

Doubt Cast on Welfare Measures

Regarding President Tinubu’s welfare measures, the PDP expressed skepticism about the announced N25,000 per month for six months for average low-grade workers.

The party suggested that this could be a token gesture and raised concerns about the promised cash transfer programs to vulnerable households potentially serving as a conduit for corrupt practices within the APC.


The PDP concluded by inviting Nigerians to recognize that President Tinubu’s speech highlights the current administration’s lack of plans, capacity, and competence to effectively govern the country, leaving critical challenges unaddressed and unattended.
