PDP: Buhari Lacks Solution To Insecurity
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has added its voice to the call for President Muhammadu Buhari to resign from office over the level of insecurity in the country.
The PDP’s resignation call follows the senate minority leader and member of the PDP, Enyinnaya Abaribe’s demand for the president to quit.
In a statement by its national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party said by that comment, the president “displayed a disheartening dereliction of duty.”
“Our party holds that such a statement from a commander-in-chief, who promised to lead from the front, is distressing as it further exposes an abdication of duty and shows that Mr President is not even abreast of his major task in governance which is the security of lives and property,” he said.
“The PDP is particularly worried over this apparent display of leadership failure as Mr President ought to be receiving a daily brief from his service chiefs on the actual situation on the ground.
“His comment, therefore, speaks volumes on the manner with which the security of our nation is being handled at the highest levels despite the huge resources reportedly committed to security issues by the Buhari administration.
“The party, therefore, backs the call by the senate minority leader, Senator Eyinnaya Abaribe, asking President Buhari to resign.
