After bandits stormed the Nigerian Defence Academy in Kaduna on Tuesday, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) decried the country’s recent outbreak of insecurity.
The PDP blamed the attack on the military facility on the President’s ineptitude and compromising watch, according to a statement signed by Kola Ologbondiyan, the party’s national press secretary.
Bandits currently ravage communities in Katsina, Kogi, Imo, Zamfara, and other states in the federation, according to the opposition party.
“Bandits and terrorists are now freely ravaging our communities in Kano, Kaduna, Kogi, Benue, Zamfara, Adamawa, Taraba, Borno, Yobe, Imo, and other states of the federation, including Mr. President’s home state of Katsina, where the governor, Aminu Bello Masari, has now asked victims of terror attacks to defend themselves,” according to the statement.
Nigerians have lost faith in President Muhammadu Buhari’s government, according to the PDP, as state governments are being forced to evacuate indigenes from Plateau State.
“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, the statement read in part.
“This shows their complete loss of confidence in the APC administration and the empty promises by the Buhari Presidency.
According to the party, violence and terrorism have increased in the country as a result of the Buhari administration’s ineptitude, incompetence and inability to listen to good advice from well-meaning Nigerians.
The PDP finished by urging Nigerians to hold the APC fully responsible for the country’s escalating terrorism.
