The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, of snubbing the events lined up by the Federal Government for the May 29 hand over.

Expressing disappointment with what it termed the lack of democratic discipline by Buhari, the party faulted the non-participation of the President-elect in Christian and Islamic prayer sessions over the weekend.

Gen. Buhari had travelled to the United Kingdom on Friday to observe a rest after weeks of consultations and crowded post-election engagements with local and international groups and personalities.

But, a statement yesterday by the National Publicity of the PDP, Chief Okisa Metuh, said Buhari owed Nigerians explanations on why he snubbed the prayer sessions scheduled for Friday and Sunday for Muslims and Christians respectively to usher in four years of his in-coming administration.
