The People Democratic Party, PDP, has reacted to the picture showing ailing President Muhammadu Buhari with some chieftains of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Abuja House, London.
The opposition party described the images published on Sunday as insult to Nigerians.
PDP chieftain, Femi Fani-Kayode had earlier dismissed the photos as fake, adding that Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has no truth in him.
Speaking, PDP spokesman, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, told reporters in Abuja that, “It is an insult to Nigerians because they don’t think that we are important; once they meet with the president that is all, and they will come and show us a picture.
“They don’t even think that it is necessary for the president to send message to Nigerians or for themselves to come and tell us what happened during that meeting.
“They merely planted pictures in the front pages of all the newspapers, and they think that is alright.
“That is not the way to behave in a civilised country. At least, ordinarily we should have been having daily bulletins on the president’s health, the man is being treated there in London with tax payers’ money, and we elected him to do a job.
“We wish him well, and we want him to live, but it is pure contempt for Nigerians for a group of people, party leaders to just go and meet the president and come and show us pictures without saying anything either from them or from the president to Nigerians. It is pure contempt; it is an insult to our collective intelligence.”
