The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has queried President Muhammadu Buhari’s stopover in London.

The party referred to the stopover as a constitutional breach because no letter was transmitted to the National Assembly.

In a statement by the party’s spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan says, “President Buhari had on Tuesday left the United States, instead of returning to the country, detoured to the UK for another private visit without regard to full disclosure requirements of our constitution and laws.

“Indeed, Nigerians are worried about the signal being sent out by this penchant for the secret itinerary, particularly, given the poor reputation and government transparency issues confronting our nation under the Buhari administration.

“The Presidency must understand that President Buhari is not a private citizen and as long as his upkeep and itinerary are sourced from our hard-earned resources, there must be full disclosure, as citizens deserve to know the purpose of the visit and the cost to our nation.

“This is especially as President Buhari’s foreign trips, which come at great costs, have not brought any gains to our country. Instead, the President has continued to de-market our nation in the international arena. The just concluded the Commonwealth Head of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in London, where he cast aspersion at our enterprising youths and failed to return with any dividend readily comes to mind.

Furthermore, President Buhari’s admission at the Voice of America (VOA) that he was unable to reach an agreement with President Donald Trump on any matter of interest to Nigeria, during his US visit and that he has no future development agenda to validate his 2019 re-election bid, confirm our position that the Buhari administration has nothing to offer Nigerians”.

The PDP, therefore, urges President Buhari’s handlers to adequately prepare him before international outings as well as ensure full disclosure on all his visits outside the country, since he embodies the image and integrity of our nation, until May 29, 2019.
