All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP) on Thursday said the visit of the President of the United States of America Barack Obama to Ghana recently was a slap on Nigeria and indictment
of President Umaru Yar'Adua's government.
In a statement, National Publicity Secretary of ANPP, Emma Eneukwu, believes that Nigeria that parades itself as the "giant of Africa" has been turned to a "no go area" by the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and its members who have placed self interest above the interest of the people.
ANPP reasoned that prior to Obama's visit to Africa, he must have possibly weighed Ghana and Nigeria and decided that Nigeria would not be secure for him, especially at this time when the country is battling with the issue of militancy in the Niger Delta region.
The statement added that this development alone tells a lot of negative things about Nigeria to the outside world.
The party recalled Obama's speech in Ghana and noted that it gave clear situation of what is happening in Nigeria and its leadership.
