PDP’s National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan in his statement said President Buhari is not a “private citizen and cannot embark on private trips, wrapped in secrecy, since his upkeep draws directly from national resources and taxpayers’ money.”

The full statement reads, “While the PDP has nothing against Mr. President embarking on any trip, we insist that as the President of the Federal Republic, there must be
full disclosures to Nigerians because the citizens deserve to know the purpose of the visit and the cost on the nation.

“We know that Mr. President is billed to attend the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) scheduled to take place between April 16 and
20, but Nigerians are wondering why he is taking off to an undiscloseddestination in London two clear weeks ahead.

“We ask: Is President Buhari and his handlers hiding anything from Nigerians so much so that they cannot disclose the reason and duration of the so-called private visit?

“Nigerians are invited to note that this secret visit has a departure date but silent on the purpose, date and place of arrival.

“Today, our economy is hemorrhaging and the citizens are languishing because of the continued lack of accountability and total incompetence of the Buhari-led administration.

“The PDP insists that public officers at all levels, particularly theoccupier of the office of the President, must be accountable, transparent and answerable in all their dealings at all times, especially under an administration that claims zero tolerance for
corruption.”

  1. Rubbish. The president has a private life. He is a civil servant and should be allowed to have holidays as other civil servants. In the UK where I reside, the prime minister is terrible doesn’t inform the country that he is going on holidays or making g a private visit. Must all his trips be official? Nigerians have very important issues to talk about than this. So the president is not paid and any money he uses is taxpayers money. I don’t support any political party but Africans should embark on constructive criticism. Stick on facts and stop being partisan.
