The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of failure to take decisive steps to end “bloodletting and guarantee a stable, peaceful and secure nation.”
PDP made the remark while lamenting that Buhari had no solution to Nigeria’s insecurity challenges.
In a statement by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, on Sunday, the opposition party said it was “completely inexcusable that as an individual, occupying the seat of the Commander-In-Chief, President Buhari has failed to organize his parade and articulate a decisive and operable strategy to effectively end violence in our nation.”
PDP observed that the Buhari Presidency “only stops at issuing condemnations, publishing commiserations and embarking on condolence visits with empty assurances, but takes no definite steps to address the situation and bring culprits to book.”
The party said: “At most, Presidency officials sit in the safety and comfort of Aso Rock to task state governors and traditional rulers, without concrete security measures to rout perpetrators.
“This complete failure of leadership and abdication of the statutory duties of the President indicates that the Buhari Presidency has no solutions towards ensuring the security of lives and property in our nation.
“Such failure by the Buhari Presidency is emboldening perpetuation of violent acts against defenceless citizens by insurgents, bandits, marauders, and kidnappers freely pillaging our compatriots in various parts of our country.
