Foreign trips: President Buhari on ‘thank you’ visits – PDP

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Lagos State
chapter, on Sunday, said President Muhammadu
Buhari's foreign trips were not aimed at finding a
lasting solution to the many problems confronting
Nigeria as claimed by the ruling All Progressives
Congress (APC), but rather to show gratitude to
presidents who backed him in his bid to be
president.
Mr. Taofik Gani, PDP publicity secretary, said the
President Buhari was merely embarking on 'Thank
You' visits to leaders of foreign nations who
supported him during the 2015 presidential
election, which explains why there is no
improvement in Nigeria's economy despite the
numerous foreign trips since he took over.
According to a statement from the Presidency,
Abuja, President Buhari would depart for Equatorial
Guinea Sunday.
President Buhari has been criticised by a section
of the polity for his overseas trips. A few weeks
ago, PDP stalwart, Governor Ayo Fayose, charged
Nigerians to compel the President to "stay at home
and govern."
Gani said the statement attributed to Alhaji Lai
Mohammed, Minister of Information, on Saturday
that Nigeria's economy is beyond President Buhari
was an admission that the APC-controlled federal
government was incapable of managing the affairs
of the country.
"What they have admitted is that they cannot
provide solutions to the problems of the country.
The expression by the Minister of Information is a
vindication of our campaign that the APC-led
federal government is too kindergarten and
intellectually arrogant to manage the affairs of this
sophisticated country.
"They are arrogant because they do not want to
see any trace of PDP in their government. They
have decided to throw out the baby with the bath
water. The experience and contributions of great
minds like Akinwunmi Adesina, Okonjo-Iweala and
other ministers under the PDP have all been
rubbished because the APC government wants
Nigeria to believe that there is nothing good in
PDP," he said.
The PDP spokesman averred that the APC
government was "clueless" becuase many
programmes of the former administration have
been scrapped.
He alluded to the Sovereign Wealth Fund
championed by Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, former
Minister of Finance, which he said "saved Nigeria
from even what America cannot survive when
there was world economic downturn. The fact that
there is a sharp fall in price of crude oil should not
make the Nigerian economy this bad."
"Our economy is bad because the people who are
in control are clueless and intellectually arrogant,
refusing to seek the advice of those that can
assist them. They are only playing partisan politics
with our lives. What is expected of the Honourable
Minister is not only to apologise to Nigerians but to
honourably resign.
"They have no solution to the myriads of problems
confronting the country. The other day, they said
all the foreign trips by President Buhari are to
seek solution to our problems. If so, how come
things are getting worse? I believe President
Buhari's numerous trips is just to say 'Thank You'
to world leaders who supported him during the
last presidential election," he said.
