The Social Democratic Party (SDP) has berated president Muhammadu Buhari over non disclosure of the actual figure for the yearly grant from United States financial assistance to Nigeria, saying the president is yet to account for the undisclosed $500m.
In a statement signed by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Princess Marian Dick Tolofari and made available to Abia Breaking News, the party also frowned at the president’s inability to give the accurate figure of the number of Dapchi girls who died in the captivity of boko haram.
The statement reads “President Muhammed Buhari was silent about the pressing needs of Nigeria Community in United States which included the Deferred Action for childhood Arrival (DACA).
“Fifty percents of the beneficiaries of DACA Programme are Nigerians
“At the meeting with President Donald Trump, President Muhammed Buhari made a numerical error while talking about the Dapchi abducted children. Buhari said “but the Dapchi one, 106 that were kidnapped, we got 100 back, four died, and one is still held in captivity.
“The president did not tell Nigerians the truth, girls that died are five not four. It’s preposterous to note that Chief Security Officer of Nigeria does not know the figure of the dead girls.
“The Prophet of Anti-Corruption did not disclose to Nigerians the actual figure for the yearly grant from United States financial assistance to Nigeria.
“President Buhari who is the prophet of Anti-corruption should account for the undisclosed $500m. President Donald J. Trump understood the fact the president’s speech was restricted and doctored on prepared speech.
“While President Buhari was being commenced over the anti-graft campaign, Nigeria is still yet to secure any conviction on any corruption case pending in our court, we see the development as grand standing”.
