PDP blasts Buhari over stance on illegal migrants

President Muhammadu Buhari and German Chancellor Angela Merkel

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has condemned President Muhammadu Buhari’s position that Nigerians caught up in their attempt to illegally enter Europe, are on their own. 

The president made the remark while hosting German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Friday. 
But in a statement issued by Kola Ologbondiyan, its National Publicity Secretary, in Abuja on Saturday, the main opposition party maintained that the statement further exposes the president as “an insensitive leader, who cares less about the plights of his compatriots.”
It said while the PDP does not, in any way, support illegal migrations, it, however, holds that such does not warrant incendiary statement against Nigerian citizens by no less a person than the President, who should be seeking for ways to solve the problem.
The PDP noted that such statements by the President against Nigerians fuel violent attacks and inhuman treatment being meted out against the citizens abroad, including those with legitimate documents and engaged in lawful activities.
The party observed that President Buhari has shown that he is not bothered that no fewer than 10,000 Nigerians died in the deserts between January to May 2017 alone, while trying to escape the economic hardship and escalated insecurity occasioned by his misrule.
The statement added: “Is it not disturbing to Mr President that reports by Nigerian Immigration Services showed that many more Nigerians have been trapped in detention and slave camps in various parts of the world?
“Also, is it not an act of gross leadership failure that, in his outburst against Nigerians, President Buhari admitted that they left in search of ‘greener pastures,’ yet he could not articulate any solution to mitigate the suffering his administration has unleashed on our nation in the last three years?
“Mr President knows he is the cause of the problem, yet he has no words of assurances for suffering Nigerians. Instead, he has continued to worsen the situation with unsavory statements against our nation and her citizens whenever he is before an international audience.
“If President Buhari is not condemning our youths as lazy and lovers of freebies, he is disparaging our women as inconsequential or demarketing our nation to investors as corrupt.”
The PDP further stated that it is the duty of the President, as elected leader of government, to pursue the fundamental human rights of his citizens, as well as find solution to the problems that are pushing Nigerians to adopt illegal migration, irrespective of the huge risks, as option for survival.
“Moreover, if the Buhari administration and the APC had not wrecked our once robust economy, Nigerians would not be seeking for greener pastures in other lands,” the party stated.
The PDP further lamented that in “another exhibition of incompetence, President Buhari could not articulate any strong response to the economic proposals brought by the German leader, thereby squandering our nations opportunity of benefiting from her visit.
“It has therefore become clearer that there is no way our nation can survive another four years under a leadership such as the Buhari-led APC administration, hence the determination by Nigerians to rally on the platform of the repositioned PDP to throw up a competent President to effectively pilot the affairs of our nation, come 2019.”

    let’s tell ourselves the truth. will any of these PDP big wig allow any of their children to embark on illegal migration to Europe. PDP is just talking trash for people to hear their voice as an opposition party. Do they want the president to support the illegal immigrants?

    PDP have come again.
    Set your party political agenda for people to see rather engaging on needless talk

  20. Olumide Emmanuel says

    Buhari goofed again as usual.I wonder if the man really understands that there is a word like “diplomacy” When a leader thinks he can disgrace his own people at any given opportunity because he wants to be seen as disciplined and saintly, he is then simply showing the world his incompetence and failure.

    Conversely, PDP should shut up in this matter! They have been the harbinger of the misfortune, and they have also failed their nation. They should seek this opportunity to score points for 2019 elections.
