PDP is not vibrant – Abati

Former Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Dr Reuben Abati has said that the opposition party, People Democratic Party (PDP) is not vibrant enough to put the ruling party, All Progressives Congress (APC), on its toes.

This was his comment while responding to questions from the media, expressing that just like APC, which was so vociferous and outspoken against the policies of PDP when it was ruling; the former is weak and docile at the moment. He said efforts should be geared at making itself a credible opposition in order to prevent one party state.

However, Abati, when speaking on the ant-corruption crusade of President Mohammadu Buhari, says the war has so far been waged against those who served in the last administration. He is of the opinion that the fight against corruption should not be selective, advising that the institutions set up to fight corruption must also be fair and neutral.

Commenting on how the medical trip of PMB was handled, he says those around any serving president would never want his health status divulged if it is critical or if it requires that such a president leaves the seat of power for sometimes.

Sighting some presidents of popular countries who were critically ill while serving, and whose condition of health were hidden from the public, Abati says no president or any aide of his will want the members of the public to be privileged to such information.
