Why Nigeria Is Bleeding: PDP Opens Up!



PDP Buhari

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has lamented the killing of 30 persons in Zamfara last Tuesday and the reign of banditry across the country as it identified the cause of the problem. The PDP blamed what it claimed as indecision on the part of President Muhammadu Buhari and disorientation of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.

The PDP in a statement issued by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondinyan also bemoaned the killing of a staff as well as abduction of unknown number of students of Greenfield University in Kaduna state, the same Tuesday night.

“It is saddening that bandits and terrorist elements are now holding our nation to ransom due to the manifest lack of commitment by the Buhari Presidency and the disoriented All Progressives Congress (APC) to decisively confront the situation and secure our country,” the PDP said in identifying the problem.

“Today, under President Muhammadu Buhari, our nation has become an expansive killing field where bandits, terrorist, kidnappers and invaders are having a field day despoiling our communities and killing our compatriots. This is completely unacceptable!

Noting its interventions in the past, the PDP said:

“Our party recalls that we had advised President Buhari to conduct a holistic rejigging of our national security architecture but Mr. President only replaced the faces of the service chiefs, without any attention to serious operational issues, as if the replacement of commanders were the exclusive magic wand for the security challenges facing our nation.

“In the same vein, our party had demanded for the decentralization of the police structure in a manner that will allow for effective state and community policing in the country.

According to the PDP, “rather than implement such, the Buhari presidency as well as the APC are toying with constabulary system of policing even when it is clear that such cannot be a direct response to the level of banditry and insecurity pervading our nation today.

“The fact is that the situation in our nation today has become too critical and demanding a surgical approach, including amendment to our constitution and other statutes that will allow for an effective community police system.

It is clear to all, that no matter the number of the Inspector Generals that are replaced, the policing structure of our nation will remain ineffective if left under the prevailing statutory framework.

“For the umpteenth time, the PDP charges President Buhari to wake up from slumber, stop his unnecessary rhetoric, blame games and lame marching orders and take bold steps to rejig our national security architecture to guarantee the protection of lives and property in our country.

“Our party holds that President Buhari, as the commander-in-chief, who promised to lead from the front, cannot be sleeping on duty or having penchant for overseas trips when our nation is on the edge.”
