The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has lampooned President Muhammadu Buhari for spending taxpayers’ money on medical facilities in London while millions of Nigerians are dying in decrepit medical facilities at home.
The party added said it was wrong for the president to deploy the nation’s resources to travel to London for the Global Education Summit on Financing Global Partnership for Education (GPE) 2021-2025, when the meeting is scheduled to be virtual.
PDP also berated the Buhari Presidency for trying to hide his private appointment with his doctors under the virtual meeting apparently in a bid to launder his consistent failure to honour his pre-2015 campaign promise not to embark on medical tourism, if elected President.
The party in a statement by its national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, insisted that President Buhari has no justification to travel to far-away London, since the meeting is virtual meeting or for a medical checkup, which he could have done at home, if his administration had not wrecked our healthcare system.
“Mr President’s action has confirmed the stand by majority of Nigerians that he is wasteful, thinks only about himself and cares less about millions of our citizens, who do not have access to foreign medical treatment, but who are dying on daily basis because the Buhari administration has crippled our health sector,” the party said.
