You lack capacity to secure Nigeria, PDP tells Buhari


PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan

For blaming the opposition for the ongoing killings in parts of the federation, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has told President Muhammadu Buhari and his All Progressives Congress (APC) administration that they lacked the capacity to secure Nigeria. It insisted that the buck-passing indicates confusion and incompetence on the part of the government.

In a statement yesterday in Abuja by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP noted: “It is totally atrocious that instead of waking up to its responsibility or accepting failure and seeking help, President Muhammadu Buhari and his officials have been resorting to blame game in the face of the daily bloodletting and mass killings in our country.

“Only recently, President Buhari ran to the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, to blame deserters from the late Muammah Gaddafi’s Libya as being responsible for the killings.


“In the last three years, the Buhari presidency had placed blames on past administration, demographic changes, climate change, conflict over cattle routes, decreased farmland space against increased number of cattle and human population. Today, it is the opposition that is responsible for their failure to secure the people.”

The party maintained the President and his APC must be held responsible for the escalation of the killings across the country in the last three years, adding t hat it was “a direct consequence of their incompetence, harsh policies, nepotic proclivities and general failure in governance.”

The PDP said the latest allegation was in “furtherance of the plot by the failed APC to set up innocent Nigerians as a face-saving stunt to divert attention from their failures.

“The fact remains that President Buhari has failed after winning power on the basis of false promises but more heartrending is this attempt by the presidency to play politics with human lives.”

He continued: “As a party, we stand with all Nigerians, especially the victims of the killings under the APC. We invite all Nigerians to join hands with the repositioned PDP as we work towards a national rebirth and the enthronement of a government that truly cares for the people come 2019.”
