The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has blasted President Muhammadu Buhari over Monday’s killings of innocent Nigerians in Zamfara state by marauders.
The PDP in a statement, through Kola Ologbondiyan expressed deep concern, saying it felt the pain of the victims and relations of the dead, who are now meant to live with the devastating trauma of the terrible bloodshedding and killing of their loved ones, by murderers, that will still stroll aroud the area “in spite of the propaganda and lip service by the Muhammadu Buhari administration.”
The party said the disheartening incident in the country is a clear testimony of the failure of President Buhari’s administration to provide adequate security for Nigerians, especially in the troubled states, despite his vows as well as the huge resources at his disposal to tackle insurgency.
The statement read in part: “The PDP holds that the situation in Zamfara and other states in the North-West, in addition to the heightened insecurity in the North-East and North-Central in the last three and half years, under President Buhari, shows that it is time for our dear President to review his parade and reappraise his strategy.
“Indeed, our nation cannot continue to afford the daily killing and maiming of our compatriots by marauders. This is not the way to go, and we charge President Buhari to end his buck-passing and immediately take up his responsibility as the chief security officer of our country by using the remaining days left in his tenure to address his parade.
“In the same vein, the PDP commends our patriotic security agents who are placed on harm’s way for their gallantry as they take concrete steps to defend our citizens at this trying time.”
