President Buhari has once again been slammed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), after his recent trip to Japan.
According to the party, the outing was disgraceful as Buhari hardly got the attention of other world leaders as well as investors during the annual Tokyo International Conference on African Development.
PDP further stated that the president was only successful in bringing bak promissory notes which would amount to nothing in the end.
Sharing the opinion of the party, the PDP National Publicity Scretary, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, stressed the fact that Buhari was rejected by the international community due to the massive rigging witnessed in the 2019 general elections.
He said, “The conference has shown that no world leader or international investors want to do any real business with Nigeria under President Buhari, mainly because of the legitimacy burden of his presidency arising from the rigging of the February 23 presidential election, as well as overt impunity, corruption, treasury looting and recklessness that pervade his administration.
“It is lamentable that while President Buhari and his party, the All Progressives Congress are celebrating a mere pledge of $300,000 (N108m) from the Japanese Prime Minister and a promissory note for E50m from an EU commissioner, his Ghanaian counterpart, Nana Akufo-Ado, sealed a deal with automobile giant, Toyota, to immediately establish a Toyota and Suzuki manufacturing plant in Ghana with a determined timeline of August 2020 for production.
“The multinational had also signed a deal to establish a similar plant in neighbouring Ivory Coast with a Memorandum of Understanding to that effect already signed last Thursday.”
Ologbodiyan further tierated that President Buhari no longer attends to his responsibilities as a president.
“The PDP notes with dismay that the Buhari presidency only stops at issuing condemnations, publishing commiserations and embarking on condolence visits with empty assurances, but takes no definite steps to address the situation and bring culprits to book.
“This complete failure of leadership and abdication of the statutory duties of the President indicates that the Buhari presidency has no solutions towards ensuring the security of lives and property in our nation,” he said.
