International Communities Don’t Want To Do Business With Nigeria Because Of Buhari – PDP

PDP has slammed President Buhari for celebrating a pledge of $300,000 (N108 million) from the Japanese Prime Minister.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has lamented about the poor attention given to President Muhammadu Buhari by world leaders and investors at the 7th Tokyo International Conference on Africa Development (TICAD7).

In a statement issued by party’s spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan on Sunday, 1st September 2019,  the PDP alleged that “no world leader or international investors want to do any real business with Nigeria under President Buhari, mainly because of the legitimacy burden of his Presidency, arising from the rigging of the February 23 Presidential election, as well as overt impunity, corruption, treasury looting and recklessness that pervade his administration.”

The party also slammed Buhari for celebrating a pledge of $300,000 (N108 million) from the Japanese Prime Minister, while his Ghanaian counterpart, Nana Akufo-Ado sealed a deal with automobile giant, Toyota, to immediately establish a Toyota and Suzuki manufacturing plant in Ghana with a determined timeline of August 2020 for production.

Read the statement below:

“The TICAD7 conference has shown that no world leader or international investors want to do any real business with Nigeria under President Buhari, mainly because of the legitimacy burden of his presidency arising from the rigging of the February 23 presidential election, as well as overt impunity, corruption, treasury looting and recklessness that pervade his administration.

“It is lamentable that while President Buhari and his party, the All Progressives Congress are celebrating a mere pledge of $300,000 (N108m) from the Japanese Prime Minister and a promissory note for €50 million from an EU commissioner, his Ghanaian counterpart, Nana Akufo-Ado, sealed a deal with automobile giant, Toyota, to immediately establish a Toyota and Suzuki manufacturing plant in Ghana with a determined timeline of August 2020 for production.

“The multinational had also signed a deal to establish a similar plant in neighbouring Ivory Coast with a Memorandum of Understanding to that effect already signed last Thursday.”

“It is instructive to note that Toyota announced that it preferred to cite the plant in Ghana because of the favourable economic climate prevailing in the country; a climate, which has taken flight from Nigeria under President Buhari and worsened since the rigging of the Presidential election.

“It is saddening that because of President Buhari, our nation, which, under the PDP had excelled to become one of the world’s fastest growing economies and a hub for Foreign Direct Investments, is now descending into a pariah and beggarly nation with no hope in sight.

“This development plainly shows that the time is gone when world leaders and investors embraced manipulated elections and governments that do not have the mandate of their citizens.

“The PDP stands with majority of Nigerians in holding that the only way to save our nation from imminent collapse is the retrieval of the Presidential mandate at the court. That is the only way our nation can enjoy the benefit of an acceptable and purposeful leadership, which will return her to the path of peaceful co-existence, political stability and economic prosperity.”
