- The PDP has raised concerns over the security challenges in the country
- The party expressed doubts over President Buhari’s ability to govern effectively
- According to the PDP, Buhari’s determination to secure Nigeria is questionable
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said the President Buhari administration has shown that it is unable to proffer solutions to the security challenges facing the country.
The spokesperson for the party, Kola Ologbondiyan, in a statement on Saturday, January 16, said the administration is completely helpless about governance.
Ologbondiyan said a recent statement by the presidency that Nigerians should wait on God for solutions to the insecurity in the country is evidence that the administration is incompetent.
"This statement further goes to confirm that the Buhari’s administration has outlived its usefulness, if it had any, and that the promises and assurances made by President Buhari, on the fight against insecurity amount to mere lip service."
According to the party, Buhari has completely failed in his obligations to Nigerians, particularly in the area of security.
The PDP also asked the service chiefs to voluntarily vacate their offices for failing in their duties.
The party urged troops on the frontline not to be discouraged by the comments emanating from the presidency.
Meanwhile, amid tragic rises in insecurity across the country, Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to sack the service chiefs.
Wike made the calls on Friday, January 15, during the ceremony organised to mark the 2021 Armed Forces Remembrance Day in Port Harcourt, the state capital.
According to the governor, the sack of the service chiefs will usher in fresh "ideas and strategy in tackling the threats to internal insecurity.
