Over the weekend, PDP National Secretary, Olisa Metuh released a statement on behalf of the party, stating that President Buhari is scaring foreign investors away from the country due to his incessant statements about corruption.

The presidency responded to the allegation via a statement released by presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina, which reads in part:

Our attention has been drawn to the latest statement by the PDP spokesman, Olisa Metuh, alleging that President Muhammadu Buhari is ‘demarketing Nigeria’.

We restate for the umpteenth time to Mr. Metuh and his ilk that their attempts to distract President Buhari from the job he has been elected to do will fail.

President Buhari will remain true to the virtues of honesty, integrity, sincerity, incorruptibility and plain-speaking, which endeared him to Nigerians and made them prefer his leadership to that of a lying and deceptive PDP administration.

The President will not, in the guise of ‘marketing’ the country, refrain from telling Nigerians and the world, the emerging truths about the abject state in which years of plundering by a PDP leadership has left the Nigerian treasury and economy.

President Buhari will not in the name of ‘marketing’ or ‘attracting’ investors, follow in the footsteps of the ousted PDP administration and its discredited officials, who shamelessly lied to Nigerians and the world about the buoyancy and vibrancy of an economy they had bled dry for personal gain, when it was very obvious to the discerning, that the Nigerian economy was headed for serious trouble.

    Reminds one of the guy who was asked at an interview to say something about his weaknesses and he went- “I argue lot, I am impatient, I can be opinionated…” and wondered why he failed since he was being honest with his answers. Well, truth without also being on the quick with the redeeming factors of that truthfulness is suicidal, not just in job interviews, but also much more in economic dynamics of a country. It is this fact that our president and his apologists are failing to comprehend.
