The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to use the benefit of his state visit to Ghana to draw lessons from his Ghanaian counterpart, President Nana Akufo-Addo on how to run a peaceful, united and economically vibrant nation.
The party also criticized the President for offering to assist Ghana in her war against corruption, when some political office holders in Nigeria reek with corruption as evinced by the transparency international report which exposed the fact that corruption has worsened in Nigeria under his watch.
In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party said the President and his handlers should have been embarrassed that while the President of Ghana paraded credentials of a robust economy and a peaceful nation, Nigeria, under the Buhari presidency is plagued with economic recession and upsurge of violence and daily bloodletting.
The PDP said it is hoped that President Buhari recollects that unlike his Ghanaian counterpart, his administration had nothing to show in its first year in office, stating that under the watch of the APC-led Federal Government, over 8 million Nigerians have lost their jobs, 16 million remained unemployed, 18 million more were underemployed while another 27.44 million refused to work for various reasons related to frustration occasioned by the negative policies of government.
The PDP, therefore, urged President Buhari’s handlers to stop embarrassing the nation, especially at the international stage and be wary of turning Nigeria into a joke in the international arena, especially as the world knows what is obtainable in the present government.
