Gadaffi Comment: Stop the blame game, PDP tells Buhari

President Buhari and Archbishop Welby on the occasion

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has charged President Muhammadu Buhari to admit that he has failed woefully in his promise to end insurgency in the country, instead of always resorting to excuses, particularly in the international arena.

In a press statement signed by its national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP said  by running to Justin Welby, Archbishop of Cantebury, to declare that the insurgents and marauders pillaging our people are fighters from late Muammah Gadaffi’s Libya, President Buhari confirms the position of Nigerians that he is incapable of handling the security challenges of our nation.

"We invite Nigerians to recall that in November 2017, President Buhari had informed the Nigerian community in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire that Gadaffi’s fighters were responsible for the escalation of Boko Haram insurgency," the PDP said, adding, "This time, Mr. President has revealed that the killer-herdsmen ravaging our nation and killing our people are from Libya."

The opposition party wonders why the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led Federal Government was engaging the killer herdsmen in dialogue, reportedly paying ransoms and even considering the amnesty option for them if it knew all these while that the marauders and insurgents are invaders.

In the same vein, it calls on Nigerians demand explanations from President  Buhari on why his administration has been asking the victims of marauders' attacks in various states, particularly, Benue, Taraba, Kogi, Nasarawa, Zamfara, Plateau, among others, to learn to accommodate, if it
knows that the attackers had links with Libya.

Noting that its take remains that "President Buhari and his dysfunctional APC should simply admit that they have failed to safeguard the lives of our people as well as the territorial integrity of our nation," the party thus urged Nigerians "to continue to be at alert and support one another in this trying time, irrespective of ethnicity, creed or class, as we collectively work to salvage our nation from the misrule of the incompetent APC, come 2019."

As a party, the PDP said its members are already working on resetting the agenda of the nation and are determined to reinvent the wheel of our national fortunes.
