PDP Demands Agric Minister Audu Ogbeh Apologises And Resigns Over Thailand Comment






PDP said the world was shocked when the Ambassador of Thailand to Nigeria, Wattana Kuwongse, denied informing Ogbeh that major rice mills were shutting down in Thailand as a result of drop in importation of rice by Nigeria.
In a statement by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party said the development has portrayed the image of the nation in a bad light.


The statement reads, “It is clear that the intention of the APC-led Federal Government was to use the Minister of Agriculture to mislead Nigerians into believing that the Buhari-led administration has achieved national self-sufficiency in food production; a stunt which fell flat on its face and brought the nation into international ridicule. Nigerians will recall that the same minister, last year, programmed the exporting of rotten yams and brought the country into international disrepute, all in the desperate bid of APC interests to score cheap political points and push their ill-lucked 2019 re-election bid.


We therefore charge the Minister of Agriculture to toe the path of honour and immediately resign and tender and unreserved apology to Nigerians. The fact remains that our nation cannot continue to run on a government where officials function as peddlers of falsehood and lies.
