• PDP should be ashamed of itself for failing Nigerians – Nabena
By Olugbade Ni’maah
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused President Muhammadu Buhari and All Progressives Congress (APC) members of having connections and playing a part in the terrorist attacks going on in the country.
This was made known in a statement released by the party which emphasised how APC aided terrorist in severing the efforts of last government of former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.
The statement reads, “The PDP has asked Nigerians to hold officials of the Buhari Presidency and the anti-people APC responsible for the festering violence and incessant killing of innocent Nigerians by terrorists.
“The confession by the Buhari administration that our nation, under its watch, is at the mercy of terrorists, is self-indicting; being the outcome of the overt and covert support given to terrorists by some unpatriotic APC leaders for their selfish interests.”
The party also recalled how APC chieftains, as opposition leaders first in the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria, and later the APC, openly sympathised with terrorists and took steps that frustrated genuine efforts by the then PDP government to fight terrorism.
“APC leaders encouraged hoodlums to fight against the system, with one of them, who is now a minister, emboldening hoodlums and insurgents to resist our security agencies with machine guns.”
“Such subtle support for terrorism was witnessed in the bizarre attempt by the APC-led administration to blame the 43 innocent Nigerians beheaded by terrorists in Borno state on Saturday.”
While commenting on the release, Yekini Nabena, the Deputy National Publicity Secretary of All Progressives Congress (APC), said PDP should be ashamed of itself because it had sixteen years to end the carnage but chose politics over Nigerian lives.
“Our government is still fighting Boko Haram because of the incompetence of the former PDP administration. It was a PDP government which created Boko Haram in the first place when it ordered the extra-judicial murder of its leader, Yusuf,” Nabena commented.
