PUS President Donald Trump and President Buhari

The opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has blamed President Muhammadu Buhari and his “handlers” for bringing ridicule to the country.

PDP in a statement issued by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, described the statement attributed to Trump as an international embarrassment not only to Nigerians but to the nation as well.

The statement reads in part: “While the PDP has strong reservations on the reported comment by President Trump, for which we demand a response from the Buhari Presidency and the US White House, the party holds that had our dear President not cheapened the exalted office of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria by his woeful outing during his visit to the United States, President Trump would not have had the opportunity to assess his level of incompetence and make such an embarrassing statement about our President.

“The PDP and indeed all well-meaning Nigerians are now worried over how other world leaders have perceived our President, who has not only failed in governance but has continued to de-market our nation in the international community”, the statement added.
