Reading Time: < 1 minute

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday blamed President Muhammadu Buhari for the absence of some serving ministers at a meeting with investors in the United States of America (USA)

Consequently, the opposition party called on the National Assembly to immediately summon Audu Ogbeh, Ogbonnaya Onu, Alhaji Lai Mohammed and Babatunde Fashola, Ministers of Agriculture, Science and Technology, Information and Culture and Power, Works and Housing respectively, over the embarrassing issue.

Also, the PDP said the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Ibe Kachikwu; Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, and Minister of Solid Minerals Development, Kayode Fayemi, should also be summoned for failing to attend the parley with the America investors.

The party noted that, “this embarrassing development is a clear reflection of the recklessness and laissez-faire attitude of the Buhari-led All Progressives Congress (APC) administration towards governance, resulting in the biting economic recession and other woes plaguing our nation under President Buhari’s watch.

“It is now clear to Nigerians why the APC and its incompetent Federal Government have not been able to attract any meaningful Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) to the country in the last three years of President Buhari’s administration. Instead, the ones it inherited are pulling out.

“How can APC government officials sent to attend investors’ meetings abandon their duties and engage in personal leisure abroad? Painfully, they blame everybody but themselves for the choking economic situation of the country in the last three years.

“PDP holds that these government officials had the temerity to pursue personal interests across the United States because they knew that even if their atrocious acts were brought to the attention of Mr. President, he will claim that he is not aware.”
