Abuja - Nigeria's largest opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has kicked against the remarks made by President Muhammadu Buhari on grazing routes for cattle and their herders across the country.
The Punch reports that the PDP alleged that President Buhari is quite comfortable with the growing insecurity and killing of Nigerians by terrorists, bandits and kidnappers alike.
In a statement released by the media office of the national chairman of the PDP, Iyorchia Ayu, the party said Buhari's comment that state police is not an option is an evidence that the security situation in the country would not be changing anytime soon.
Ayu said president Buhari's insistence that grazing routes are the only viable solution to the farmers and herders crisis shows that he lacks ideas on the issues affecting the people.
