The Peoples Democratic Party has critisised the signing of the amended Deep Offshore and Inland Basin Production Sharing Bill into law by President Muhammadu Buhari in the United Kingdom.
The party described the bill taken to the UK by the President’s Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari, as “inexcusable and insulting” to Nigerians including the constitution of the country.
The PDP in a statement on Wednesday, said the action of the Presidency is an abuse of privilege, noting that the Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, should have been given such a bill to sign into law.
Ayo Fadaka, Zonal Publicity Secretary of the PDP, said this in Akure, the state capital.
Fadaka said the President was only allowed to work outside the country “when he is pursuing diplomatic and bilateral relations on behalf of the nation.”
The statement read in parts, “While we are absolutely uninterested in the unhealthy developments within the Presidency which is fast developing into a schism, we declare that Nigeria and its interests far surpasses the immature and pedestrian scheming of the President and his cabal.
