Nigeria confirms its index case of the virus in Lagos after an Italian visited the country on Thursday, February 27, 2020.

The opposition party has, however, blamed the case on President Buhari saying, his administration did not take concrete steps to safeguard the country against the virus.

In a statement on Friday, February 28, 2020, PDP spokesman, Kola Ologbodiyan said, the APC administration has failed to live up to its responsibilities, adding that its failure to take necessary steps led the country to the current situation.

The party also called on Buhari to step aside saying his administration is a misfortune to Nigeria.

The statement reads, “The PDP notes that a responsive and proactive government would have mobilized effective surveillance and screening measures to ward off the menace, particularly at our entry points, but the incompetent, insensitive and indifferent Buhari administration, was more interested in propaganda and unnecessary showboating with false performance claims.

“The PDP said Nigerians should directly hold the Buhari Presidency responsible should any national calamity arose from COVID-19 in addition to the economic and security challenges its negligence had caused our nation.

“Due to the negligence and incompetence of the Buhari administration, Nigerians can no longer move freely across their country for fear of insurgents, bandits, kidnappers and now corona virus.

“Indeed, the Buhari government is a huge misfortune to our nation. This latest leadership failure further validates widespread calls for it to step aside for more competent hands to manage the affairs of our country.”

The main opposition party also attacked the government for not evacuating its citizens in Wuhan, where the virus started from in China.
