President Muhammadu Buhari has again come under criticism from the opposition, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), over rising insecurity in the country.
Addressing journalists on Wednesday, December 16, in Bauchi at the inauguration of new road projects, PDP described as a "distress" the silence and insensitivity of the president in the face of a spate of attacks.
Legit.ng gathers that the opposition party spoke through its national chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, who also submitted that "every facet of the Nigerian life has collapsed."
According to the PDP chairman, under the leadership watch of President Buhari Nigeria has become a crippled state with economy and security taking a downward run.
Speaking on the recent tragedies that struck the country, Secondus described as disheartening the gruesome massacre of over 43 rice farmers in Zabarmari community of Borno state and abduction of secondary school boys in Kankara local government area of Katsina.
“Just a week ago, over 40 farmers were killed in Borno State. Is Nigeria not in distress? What else do you what me to describe?”
“The economy is bad, security is bad, virtually every facet of the Nigerian life has collapsed. What else do you want to hear? You know more than we know.
