Golden Eaglet’s Victory, Bold Testimony Against PMB’s ‘Demarketing’ - PDP

With the emergence of Nigeria’s Golden Eaglet as world champions of the FIFA under 17 world cup tournament, opposition party Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described the victory as “a bold statement by the Nigerian youth against series of uninspiring and negative utterances and actions of President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC government that has been demarketing the nation in the international arena.”

In a press statement made available to our reporter, the party’s national publicity secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, said the victory is a clear demonstration that Nigeria as a country is endowed with enormous talents and potentials waiting to be exhibited to the entire world.

“The time has come for us to dwell less on our negatives but to showcase the positives, the talents and indeed the natural resources waiting to be harnessed and exhibited for foreign investments and participation in our economy.

“Finally, the PDP states that this victory should be a wake up call on President Muhammadu Buhari to recognize the hardworking spirit of Nigerians, our overflowing talents and well-developed natural endowments,” PDP said.

The party said the victory further expresses the resilient spirit of Nigerians despite a discouraging government that has not only shown an obvious inability to chart a clear course of governance and the future of the youth, but also refused to acknowledge the potentials in its citizens.

Meanwhile, Femi Adesina the presidential media aide took to Twitter to praise Nigerian football team, the Golden Eaglets for their success.
