Terrorism: Nigerians Have Lost Hope In Buhari, APC – PDP


Press Statement
Terrorism: Nigerians Have Lost Hope in Buhari, APC
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says the decision by
some state governments to evacuate their citizens from
violence and terror ridden states, including Plateau state,
further confirms that Nigerians have lost faith in the
capacity of President Muhammadu Buhari and the All
Progressives Congress (APC) administration to secure the
The party laments that the insecurity situation has so
deteriorated under President Buhari and the APC’s
incompetent and compromising watch that suspected
bandits now have the temerity to attack military
formations, including the Nigerian Defence Academy
(NDA), Kaduna, where they killed two officers and
abducted another senior officer.
Bandits and terrorists are now freely ravaging our
communities in Kano, Kaduna, Kogi, Benue, Zamfara,
Adamwa, Taraba, Borno, Yobe, Imo and other states of
the federation, including Mr. President’s home state,
Katsina, where the governor, Aminu Bello Masari, has now
asked victims of terror attacks to defend themselves.
It is distressing that having lost hope in the capacity and
commitment of the President Buhari-led APC
administration to protect their citizens, state governments
are now sending vehicles to the University of Jos, Plateau
state, to evacuate their citizens.
This shows their complete loss of confidence in the APC
administration and the empty promises by the Buhari
It is even more disheartening that while our nation is under
turmoil and while hundreds of helpless Nigerians,
including innocent students, are languishing in kidnappers’
den, President Buhari and APC leaders are more
interested in their lavish funfair with state owned
resources and facilities.
Our party notes that violence and acts of terrorism had
escalated across the country due to the incompetence
and compromises of the Buhari administration as well as
its refusal to heed wise counsel from well-meaning
Nigerians, including the PDP on how to secure and
stabilize the nation.
Moreover, the APC has failed to account for the
hoodlums, thugs and terrorist elements they imported
from neighboring countries as “political mercenaries” to
unleash violence on Nigerians and muzzle the 2019
general elections.
Our party charges Nigerians to hold the APC directly
responsible for the escalated acts of terrorism in our
country as history will continue to mark this administration
for its mass failure in governance and for plunging our
nation into the worst form of hardship and suffering ever.
