Why attacks persist, by Bisi Akande, as PDP donates to victims

Former Interim National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Bisi Akande, has attributed the violent attacks nationwide to a faulty system of government and constitution.

He particularly decried the killings in Benue and Taraba states, saying the ugly development was a brainchild of the ineffective governance model in the country.

At a media parley yesterday in his Ila country home, Osun State to kick-off activities marking his 79th birthday, Akande submitted that all good intentions of President Muhammadu Buhari would amount to nothing as long as the current ‘expensive and largely unaccountable’ presidential system of government was not jettisoned for a better alternative capable of fixing the challenges besetting the country .

The former governor of Osun State urged return to the parliamentary system of government.

Asked the kind of advice he had given to the President to contain the killings by the Fulani herdsmen, Akande blamed the system of government for the myriad of challenges facing the country.

Besides, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has donated relief materials worth millions of naira to the Benue government to cater for the over 60 thousands people displaced by the recent massacre in the state.

The National Chairman, Uche Secondus, represented by the Deputy National Chairman, Yemi Akinwomi, in Makurdi said the party commiserated with the people over the recent killing of over 73 persons, stating that it was on this basis that they came to give their little contribution to cushion the effect of the displaced.
