Slaughter of Christians: IPOB commends Trump; demands more

Nigerian president Muhammadu Buhari's visit to the White house, the first African leader to do so since Donald Trump took office, was ironic.

The PDP US gave the mandate during its three-day 2018 annual convention over the weekend at the prestigious Crowne Plaza Suites Hotel in the highbrow area of Houston from 27th to 29th April.

President Muhammadu Buhari seems unmindful about the outrage and backlashes that generated more than a week ago after he had made some comments on young persons in the country, as he has spoken on the "uneducated" youth in Northern Nigeria. "So the best thing for me is to keep quiet".

"We have received information that the CSO to the President has been parading one of our co-contestants as President Buhari's candidate to emerge as the next President of NANS while making moves for the candidate to be announced as the President of NANS by all means".

"Nigerians are suffering untold hardship in the hands of Buhari and APC".

He said facilities were put in place by the state government in line with the Federal Government's policy of providing at least one healthcare facility in each political ward of the country.

"We didn't discuss it".

Trump says, "We think that we are owed that".

PDP said President Buhari simply restricted himself to his script, which was silent on the issue.

The comment had generated backlash from many Nigerians who berated the president for "de-marketing the country".

In an interview late Monday with VOA, Buhari said many Nigerians who fled the northeast at the height of the Boko Haram insurgency have gone back home and are cultivating their farms with the help of low-interest loans from the government.

"We will be investing substantially in Nigeria if they can create that level playing field that we have to, very much, ask for and maybe demand", Trump said.

TribuneOnline gathered that the convention enabled members of the PDP US chapter, to review the successes and failures of the Buhari and APC national government and compared the scorecard with that of President Goodluck Jonathan administration.

On what he does during his leisure time, President Buhari said he hardly listened to music but rather always obeyed his doctors' advice on the need to eat and have enough rest.

TribuneOline gathered that facilitators critically examined the Buhari administration and concluded that the "perpetual blame game" adopted by the ruling party since 2015 points to the absolute failure of the government. He also mentioned anti-Christian sentiment in Nigeria.
