The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Sunday alleged that President Muhammadu Buhari was going to the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) for another showboating without articulating any definite objectives, plans and proposals to attract tangible benefits to the nation.
It also alleged that attending such an important meeting of world leaders and policy makers without a clear-cut national agenda showed that the Buhari Presidency was not committed to the nation “but only going out for another showboating on the international platform”.
The opposition party’s spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, made these allegations in a statement in Abuja.
Parts of the statement read, “Is it not lamentable that while other leaders are heading to the meeting with well-articulated national proposals that will boost their nations’ competitiveness on international engagements, the Buhari Presidency is going empty with zero capacity to engage; a clear signal that it will equally return empty?
“The sad effect of such leadership failure is worsened by the acceptability issues trailing the rigging of the February Presidential election, for which the Buhari Presidency is largely lacking in confidence and poise to vigorously engage other world leaders on issues.
“In over four years of this administration, the Buhari Presidency has not been able to harness opportunities presented by such important events despite huge resources deployed for attendance.
