PDP, LP React To Tinubu’s France Visit



Two of Nigeria’s key opposition parties, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Labour Party (LP) have reacted to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s private visit to Paris, France.
In his reaction, PDP Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Ibrahim Abdullahi, said it is the worst time for President Tinubu to embark on a foreign trip because of the insecurity and the state of the nation’s economy.
“We will be concerned as Nigerians because the state of the nation is appalling economically, politically, and security-wise, the nation is under siege. This is the worst time for a leader who understands his responsibility or mandate requires of him. These are not the best of times for Nigerians, they are living on imagination first of all from the economic angle. Nigerians are also in palpable tension from the security angle. Nigerians are equally disturbed about even the uncertainty from the political angle.”
On his part, the LP spokesman for the 2023 Presidential Campaign Council, Yunusa Tanko, said there was a hidden agenda for the trip, adding that President Tinubu was sick.
Tanko, said Nigeria is back to the days of former President Muhammadu Buhari when the president refers to travel than to lead. He said he noticed that Tinubu’s hands were shaking during his recent visit to Imo State.
“So the fact remains that when you see the shady exit of the President without detailed information, then you must question it. That means that there’s a hidden agenda somewhere.
“So as far as we are concerned, this is completely undemocratic and it is unacceptable. Nigerians deserve to know details about his travels. And at the same time, he must transmit power considering the level of insecurity in the country at the moment.”
