The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Wednesday said that the governance command structure of the President Muhammadu Buhari’s Government has collapsed following the isolation of the president’s Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari.

Abba Kyari had tested positive to the CoronaVirus pandemic and he is currently in isolation receiving treatment.

The statement by the opposition party was released by Kola Ologbondiyan, the National Publicity Secretary of the party.

“The PDP is worried that Nigerians are now at a loss regarding who the cabinet ministers and other officials of the Federal Government currently report to, a development that has sparked apprehensions of a collapse of governance command structure at the Federal Executive.

“Already, there is heightened public apprehensions that the development could have been the reason behind the cancellation of Tuesday and Wednesday’s scheduled Federal Government’s briefing on the COVID-19 pandemic thereby denying Nigerians much needed update on issues relating to the coronavirus disease.

“The party notes that Nigerians are distressed that Buhari has remained silent on the spread of COVID-19 and has failed to address the nation since some Presidency officials, as well as some state governors and other high profile officials and individuals reportedly tested positive to the virus.”

“Our party wants President Buhari to note that, what Nigerians expect of him at this point in our history is to end his silence, be visible and take up the challenge of personally leading in governance, particularly in this fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, like other leaders across the globe.

“The PDP also counsels President Buhari to wake up and engage other world leaders, international bodies and global health sector stakeholders for solution.”

The opposition party further urged corporate bodies, international organisations, research and medical institutions and all Nigerians to rally with members of the international community for solutions to check the spread of the pandemic.
