Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has berated President Muhammadu Buhari saying his Tokyo International Conference on Africa Development (TICAD) 7 trip suggested that world leaders don’t want to do business with him.
The opposition has described the inability of President Muhammadu Buhari to seal any economic agreement with investors at the 7th TICAD as “disgraceful” and has indicated his rejection by the international community.
PDP made this known in a statement by its national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbndiyan on Sunday, September 1.
PDP said the failure of the president to secure major deals is a clear indication that confirmed “his rejection by the international community.”
Part of the statement read: “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, All Progreesive Congress (APC) are reducing our nation by celebrating a mere pledge of $300,000 (N108 million) from the Japanese prime minister and a promissory note for 50 million euros from an European Union commission.”
Recall that president Buhari returned to Abuja yesterday after meeting with world leaders at the 7th Tokyo International Conference on Africa Development.
