The People’s Democratic Party (PDP), has Condemned beheading of 43 innocent farmers by Boko Haram in Borno State, North East, Nigeria and tasked President Mohammadu Buhari to sit up and tack decisive action against the insurgence.
The party made this known through their official twitter account and described the act as extremely wicked, devilish and must not be left unaddressed.
PDP noted with pain that this horrific killing of compatriots comes as yet another of the recurring horrid testament and badge of failure of the President Mohammadu Buhari-led APC administration to secure our nation and guarantee the safety of lives and property in our country.
“Indeed, our party is distressed by the escalated killing and maiming of innocent Nigerians by insurgents, bandits and marauders, who have continued to ravage and pillage our communities, while the lazy and lethargic administration continues with its lip service, rhetoric and false performance claims”.
“PDP is particularly disturbed because of the failure of the Presidency to take decisive action despite series of concerns raised by Borno state governor, Baba Gana Zulum, of security compromises in the state.
“APC administration appears helpless while our national security structure under President @MBuhari seems to have collapsed. Our nation appears to be on auto pilot with no one in charge while the ship of state continues to drift”.
“All our nation gets from the @MBuhari Presidency is that ‘Mr. President is shocked’, ‘Mr. President is saddened’, ‘Mr. President regrets’ and such lame responses without any decisive policy direction or directive to definitively tackle thesituation at hand, leading to escalation of killings in our country”.
“This administration has continued to embolden insurgents to the extent that they now attack military formations, convoys of state governors and engage in wanton beheading of our compatriots”.
“It is distressing that despite this sorry situation, Mr. President, who promised to lead from the front, has receded into the safety of Aso Presidential villa and refused to act on the consistent demands of Nigerians to rejig the national security architecture and replace the service chiefs with more capable hands to affectively tackle our security challenges”.
“PDP charges President @MBuhari to stop his unhelpful rhetoric. He should sit up and take actions that will safeguard the lives of Nigerians who have been subjected to all manners of mental and physical torture under this incompetent administration”.
“Mr. President should immediately move to Zabarmari in Borno state, empathize with the families of the victims and lead from the front in restoring security in the area”.
“Our party commiserates with the government and people of Borno state and urge Nigerians to remain at alert particularly in providing useful information for our security agencies in this fight against insurgency in our land”.
