The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has criticized President Buhari for signing the amended Deep Offshore and Inland Basin Production Sharing Bill into law in the United Kingdom (UK).

The former ruling party described the act of taking the bill to the UK by the President's Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari, as an inexcusable act towards Nigerians and insult to the constitution of the country.

The PDP made this statement public on Wednesday. They explained that such action from the presidency was a clear abuse of privilege, while also pointing out that the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, should have been given such a bill to sign into law.

Ayo Fadaka, Zonal Publicity Secretary of the PDP, who read the statement to newsmen in Akure, the state capital of Ondo State, said: "The President is only allowed to work outside the country when he is pursuing diplomatic and bilateral relations on behalf of the nation."

"While we are absolutely uninterested in the unhealthy development within the Presidency which is fast developing into a schism, we declare that Nigeria and its interests far surpass the immature and pedestrian scheming of the president and his cabal."

Members of the former ruling party, PDP, have been fervent critics of the Buhari-led administration, spotting and criticizing the presidency for a variety of political mishaps and economic uprising in the country.
