Lagos – The former ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has reportedly taken a swipe at President Muhammadu Buhari, saying he "is not God" and should therefore accept criticism.
Punch reported on Sunday that the PDP accused Buhari and his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) of failing to accept "with equanimity", constructive criticism.

The PDP said it was unfortunate that the APC was finding it hard to accept criticism and yet its leaders "gleefully and unjustifiably" poured invectives on president Goodluck Jonathan during his term in office.
"Unlike the APC that denigrated the office and person of former president Jonathan by wrongly depicting him as clueless and incompetent, the PDP remains the most decent, mature and constructive opposition party in our democracy and we have evidenced great respect for the person and exalted office of President Muhammadu Buhari," the PDP was quoted as saying.
