PDP Challenges Tinubu's Delegation: Demands Transparency on COP28 Costs
In a bold move, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) raises critical questions about the size and composition of President Tinubu's delegation, numbering 1,411 individuals, to the COP28 in Dubai. Accusing the delegation of being filled with political associates and their affiliates at considerable expense to the nation, the PDP calls for transparency on the costs incurred.
As the PDP denounces what it perceives as a wasteful use of scarce resources, it highlights concerns about the APC administration's priorities, emphasizing the need for prudent resource management in a time when Nigerians seek infrastructural development and economic revival.
Accusing the delegation of being inflated with political associates and their connections, the PDP demands transparency regarding the costs incurred. Debo Ologunagba, the National Publicity Secretary of the party, criticizes what he perceives as a wasteful deployment of resources by the APC administration. In a statement, Ologunagba questions the administration's commitment to prudent resource management, especially at a time when Nigerians are yearning for infrastructural development and economic revival.
According to Vanguard report, the PDP dismisses attempts by the Presidency to rationalize the delegation, asserting that it reflects a pattern of profligacy within the APC administration. The party challenges the administration to reveal the names, relevance, and total cost of the sponsored delegation, urging the National Assembly to initiate an investigation into the matter.
The PDP emphasizes the need for accountability and suggests that any improperly spent funds be redirected to projects benefiting the well-being of Nigerians. This call for transparency underscores the PDP's commitment to exposing what it considers detrimental practices within the government.
