Nigerians will hold Buhari responsible for the handling of the nation’s security challenges -Pdp says

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)
yesterday berated the Presidency for
allegedly insulting Nigerians, who
criticised the failure of the Federal
Government in the handling of insurgency
and governance in the country.
The PDP in a statement by its National
Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan,
said it was shocking that rather than
being repentant and responsive to the
views of Nigerians, the Presidency has
resorted to insulting the citizens.
It said Nigerians hold President
Muhammadu Buhari directly responsible
for the handling of the nation’s security
challenges, especially as he promised
during his 2015 presidential campaign to
end insurgency in the country.
The PDP wondered why the government
would always admonish Nigerians to live
in peace with their neigbhours if it knows
that the country has been invaded by
outside forces.
“If in the course of investigations, it
(Buhari Presidency) discovered that the
insurgents were from outside Nigeria, why
is the government reportedly paying
ransoms to them and even considering
amnesty options? Is it part of governance
to pay ransom to invaders? These are the
questions that Nigerians expect the
Buhari Presidency to answer.
“It is therefore a misplaced reaction for
any member of the Buhari Presidency to
recourse to personal insults, diatribes and
invectives against Nigerians, low or high,
who had expressed his view or demanded
some explanations in the government’s
handling of the insurgency challenge.
“The simplest expectation of Nigerians is
for the Buhari Presidency to be alive to its
responsibility by strategically responding
to the pains, suffering and lethal
starvation it has caused the entire
citizenry in the last three years,” the
opposition party said.
