- With respect to the Zabarmari killings in Borno, the PDP has pointed accusing fingers at the APC
- The opposition party opined that the APC has not done enough to tackle the menace of insecurity in Nigeria
- In fact, the party alleged that the APC has continued to pamper and make excuses for terrorists who kill Nigerians
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on Nigerians to hold the All Progressives Congress (APC) responsible for the incessant killings of fellow citizens, especially in the northern part of the country.
The opposition party's spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, in a statement on Thursday, December 3, alleged that the APC-led administration has failed to equip the security forces in order to subdue and completely defeat insurgents that have constantly struck terror in the minds of Nigerian, apart from wreaking havoc on so many already.
Ologbondiyan categorically alleged that the ruling party and governors on its platforms have on many occasions made excuses for terrorists, negotiated with, and even pampered them.
Part of the statement read:
“Nigerians also know how the APC administration had declared these marauders and bandits as deserters from Gaddafi’s army and yet ask Nigerians not to fight back but accommodate them as neighbors.
“Such subtle support for terrorism was witnessed in the bizarre attempt by the APC-led administration to blame the 43 innocent Nigerians killed by terrorists in Borno state on Saturday.
“Moreover the APC has failed to account for thousands of thugs and hoodlums it imported into our country to unleash violence on Nigerians during the 2015 and 2019 election; many of who are feared to be part of the bandits and marauders ravaging our nation today.
“The APC should end its hide and seek and come clean on its connection with the escalated activities of terrorists, bandits, kidnappers and killers in our country.”
