Buhari-thinking
The Peoples Democratic Party has said that the President Muhammadu Buhari led government has no concern for the welfare and health of Nigerians. According to the party, the Buhari government just issued a licence to a company that has a track record of producing harmful products, bribing govt officials to conceal its activities to operate in the country and carries out unregulated tests of its crops & products to operate in Nigeria.

This was contained a statement released by the opposition party on August 22nd. The party highlighted a number of reasons why the government of the day must retrace its footstep and what Nigerians should know about the said company.

According to the party, this company has shown a willingness to participate in corrupt practices in global circles. The company the Buhari administration is licensing to produce corn for consumption in Nigeria was the sole producer of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) which US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) banned in 1979 due to its link to birth defects and cancer in lab animals as well as adverse skin & liver effects in humans.

The opposition party further stated that, in 2005, the US Department of Justice (DOJ) filed a Deferred Prosecution Agreement (DFA) in which the company, Monsanto admitted to violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA). In the case, Monsanto admitted bribing Indonesian govt officials & telling officials to .invoice bribes as “Consulting Fees”. Monsanto also admitted to paying bribes to high-ranking Indonesian officials between 1997 & 2002.

PDP, therefore, wants Nigerians to know that the Buhari administration has licenced a company that not only produces harmful products but also has a track record of concealing the harmful effects of those products to operate in Nigeria.

The PDP also noted that the licencing of Monsanto to operate in Nigeria is not only harmful to the health of Nigerians, but is a danger to our agricultural sector and our economy.
