PDP criticizes Buhari over UN assembly absence

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has condemned the absence of President Muhammadu Buhari and the Nigerian delegation at one of the key listed meetings at the 70th United Nations General Assembly in New York.
According to reports, the Nigerian president was  a no-show at the U.N meeting organised on the issue of insurgency and terrorism in the West African region.

According to the PDP, their absence at the meeting, where the issue of humanitarian crisis arising from the insurgency in Lake Chad countries including Nigeria was the main agenda, showed the ineptitude of the Presidency on national and international issues.

Reacting to the report, Garba Shehu, the senior special assistant on media and publicity to the president, in a statement had explained why the Nigerian delegation was absent at the meeting.

According to him, the meeting which the Nigerian delegation missed was not one of the official meetings President Buhari and his delegations were due to attend at the United Nations.
