Buhari’s meeting with British Prime Minister embarrassing – PDP

The Delta State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, on Wednesday, condemned the recent visit of the President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, to the United Kingdom, saying it was the height of diplomatic embarrassment for Buhari to stand on the street waiting for the British PRIME Minister, David Cameron.

The PDP, in a statement by its Publicity Secretary, Mr. Deinhan Macauley, said it wondered why the President-elect decided to boycott last Friday and Sunday prayers organised for the successful inauguration of his government.

The party, therefore, asked the All Progressives Congress to apologise to Nigerians “for making the President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, a diplomatic scorn in the UK by not making strategic arrangements for his visit.”

The PDP also slammed the British government saying,“ for a nation with the best economy in Africa, the British government cannot be a godfather to Nigeria, the era of colonial domination is gone for good.”

The party called on Nigerians to be wary of CONVERTED democrats, promising that the PDP would remain the most viable party and opposition.

The statement read, “It is regrettable that the APC and the protocol officers of the President-elect could not make strategic arrangement for his visit and turned into a subject of diplomatic scorn. The APC should, therefore, apologise to Nigerians for the national embarrassment.

“We call on the APC to explain to Nigeria why Buhari decided to boycott the Friday and Sunday prayers organised for the inauguration of his government. The indifference displayed by Buhari and his APC followers towards the programme is a pointer to the level of impunity that Nigerians may get from the new administration.

The PDP said with the military background of the President-elect, Nigerians may be disappointed with the new administration.
