John James Akpanudoedehe, the national secretary of the APC Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), stated this Monday, August 9, in Abuja, the nation's capital.

APC noted that the PDP was chased out of power in 2015 on account of its lacklustre performance in security, saying the main opposition party is not qualified to chastise Buhari’s handling of security.

It, therefore, reassured Nigerians that the security of the nation is of the highest priority to the President Buhari administration and that the government is effectively deploying resources to ensure that all Nigerians go about their activities in peace and safety.

The party said:

“Going by the major role played and the negligent handling of insecurity by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) when it was in government, the failed opposition party is seriously unqualified to speak on how this government is tackling insecurity and the attendant rot the PDP left behind.

“The PDP apparently chooses to forget how the same insecurity it now desperately seeks to politicise, metamorphosed and festered under its watch which ultimately led Nigerians to overwhelmingly reject it in the 2015 elections through their votes.”

He said Nigerians still recall how bad things got under the PDP to the extent that Buhari before he was elected President was attacked by terrorists in Kaduna state.
