The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has reacted to the Letter of Credence to President Muhammadu Buhari by foreign envoys of eight countries.
Recall that on Tuesday, Ambassadors/High Commissioners of eight countries, had presented a Letter of Credence to the President for his focus on resolving conflicts in the continent, while taking care of his domestic issues as well.
But the party, in a statement posted on its verifies Twitter handle on Wednesday, describing the gesture as smokescreen by his handlers to cover the failures of his administration.
According to the PDP, it is tragic that Mr Buhari, who according to them could no longer face Nigerians due to his unfulfilled promises, “now seeks a face-saving measure of presenting yet a fresh list of vacuous agenda to foreign envoys who are already aware of the failures of his government”.
“It is embarrassing that after five years in office, President @MBuhari is still in campaign mood, reeling out empty promises, at a time other world leaders are showcasing their achievements; a development that further confirms that his administration has nothing to show in the last five years.
“The world need not be reminded that Mr. President and his party, the @OfficialAPCNg, packaged a litany of false promises with which they swayed Nigerians in 2015, only to renege on assumption of office.
“President Buhari and the @OfficialAPCNg had promised to pay N5,000 monthly allowance to indigent Nigerians, provide massive employment, free houses, monthly allowances to discharged Corps Members, reduction in price of fuel, revamping of our refineries, bringing the US dollar to the same value as the naira and other bogus promises which have today, become streams of mirage.
“On assumption of office, President @MBuhari reduced the litany of promises to three cardinal undertaking of ending insurgency and insecurity, fighting corruption by having and improving on the economy.
“It is no longer news that President @MBuhari has failed in all these three undertakings to Nigerians,” the statement concluded.
