PDP Slams Buhari for Travelling To London for Virtual Meeting

President Buhari in London

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described as appalling the decision by President Muhammadu Buhari to deploy the nation’s resources to travel to London for the Global Education Summit on Financing Global Partnership for Education (GPE) 2021-2025, when the meeting is scheduled to be virtual.

The party also berated the Presidency for trying to hide his private appointment with his doctors under the virtual meeting apparently in a bid to launder his consistent failure to honour his pre-2015 campaign promise not to embark on medical tourism, if elected President.

This was contained in a statement issued by the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Kola Ologbondiyan.

The statement partly reads, “The party insists that President Buhari has no justification to travel to far-away London, since the meeting is virtual meeting or for a medical checkup, which he could have done at home, if his administration had not wrecked our healthcare system.

“Mr. President’s action has confirmed the stand by majority of Nigerians that he is wasteful, thinks only about himself and cares less about millions of our citizens, who do not have access to foreign medical treatment, but who are dying on daily basis because the Buhari administration has crippled our health sector.

“It is disheartening that while Mr. President is spending tax payers’ money relishing the expertise of London doctors and the luxury of medical facilities in that country, millions of Nigerians are dying in decrepit medical facilities at home.”

The party further stated that it was atrocious that President Buhari is more interested in going to London for a virtual education summit when hundreds of students, who ought to be beneficiaries of the meeting, are languishing in kidnappers’ dens, with the Buhari administration taking no concrete steps to rescue them and end incessant abduction of students in Nigeria.

“Indeed, there is no way history will be kind with President Buhari, as he has always wished, if he continue in his manner of thinking only about his needs at the expense of the generality of Nigerians.”

The party urged Nigerian not to resign to despondency in the face of such incompetent, selfish and insensitive Buhari-led All Progressives Congress (APC) administration, but to remain resilient in rallying on the platform of the PDP to rescue the nation from misrule.
