PDP Asks Buhari To Explain Killing Of Soldiers



PDP Abia primary

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has tasked President Muhammadu Buhari to explain to Nigerians what he is doing to stop the killing of Nigerian soldiers such as the reported killing of more than 70 soldiers of the 157 Task Force in Melete, Borno State by Boko Haram.

The party observed that the threat letter purportedly from the insurgents ahead of the Melete attack was sufficient to have alerted government on the need for proactive measures.

The PDP in a statement by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan said:

“The party is very worried by reports of alleged  compromises, neglect and inattention to military formations in the northeast leading to the vulnerability of our beloved soldiers.

“This is in addition to apprehensions by Nigerians that the Presidency has been distracting our military by dragging our Service Chiefs to participate in his re-election campaign activities, instead of concentrating on their statutory duties.

“The PDP notes that it still has implicit faith in the Nigerian military and urged the Presidency to desist from acts that tend to whittle the proficiency and compromise the safety of our men and women who are daily risking their lives in defence of our nation.

“Our party, therefore, charges President Buhari to be alive to his responsibility as the Commander-in-Chief by immediately reviewing his parade to ensure greater professionalism and welfare of our officers and men,” the statement read in part.
