The party stated: "Is it not the height of insensitivity that while Nigerians in dire need of medical attention are languishing, President Buhari abandoned them without any form of intervention and embarked on medical tourism in London with our common patrimony?"

Moghalu, a 2019 presidential aspirant, spoke on Wednesday while inaugurating his support organisation in Awka, Anambra State.

Buhari also said "I have approved the sum of 10 Billion Naira for the rebuilding of affected communities, and tasked the Vice President to oversee the disbursement of the funds, to ensure that our goal of rehabilitation and rebuilding is achieved".

He said he was running for the 2019 Presidential election against President Buhari using his (Buhari's) poor records and performance as his (Moghalu's) campaign tools.

The Peoples Democratic Party has dismissed claims by President Muhammadu Buhari that his administration has done better than the previous PDP administrations. I will beat him by simply using his poor record.

"The federal government released over N1trillion for capital projects in 2016 and N1.5 trillion in 2017, figures that are unprecedented in Nigeria's history", the president said. "We have more people that are poor".


Pointing out that the major problem of Nigeria is leadership, he lamented that Nigeria is still running on transactional leadership instead of transformational leadership.

The FG, thereafter, set up a committee to investigate the report that suggested that the consulting firm that combines data mining, brokerage and analysis with strategic communication for electoral process manipulated Nigeria's 2007 elections by organising campaigns to weaken the chances of opposition parties.

"In the PDP, the health, security and welfare of Nigerians remain pivotal to us and that is why we feel pained that compatriots are dying in their numbers because of the refusal of the Buhari-led APC administration to address the health workers' strike".

He described as retrogressive thinking, the idea, held by many Nigerians, that the North should retain the seat of the president in 2019.

Balewa, who disclosed this in Abuja after his meeting with eight political parties and other stakeholders, said the movement is set to work out a grand coalition for an election alliance that would bring fresh breed into governance in 2019.
