Nigeria’s opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has criticised Buhari over his Monday, April 27, COVID-19 address. The party said Buhari failed to offer decisive solutions to protect Nigerians from the deadly pandemic.

The party also expressed disappointment that President Buhari did not offer any post lockdown stimulus to assist Nigerians in the private sector whose businesses had been crippled by the lockdown and are now faced with the burden of workers’ salaries and business refinancing.

Also, the PDP lamented that Buhari did not offer a decisive solution regarding the production of drug, testing kits and management of equipment to safeguard Nigerians, despite the huge resources at the disposal of his administration.

“Our party invites Nigerians to observe how countries like Senegal had effectively mobilized their indigenous medical researchers and manufacturers to produce low cost quick testing kits as well as ventilators while investing massively in the production of drug for treatment of COVID-19 patients,” the party said in a statement by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan.

The country has also developed one of the world’s most affordable coronavirus testing kits, which costs $1 (N360.50) each, $60 (N2,163) 3D printed ventilators.
