The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has lamented the heightened insecurity pervading Nigeria “due primarily to the misrule of President Muhammed Buhari and All Progressives Congress (APC) as well as their failure to decisively tackle the menace of terrorism, banditry, kidnapping, bloodletting and acts of violence in our country.”
This is contained in a communique issued at the end of the Emergency Meeting of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the party on Thursday, April 29, 2021.
According to a statement by the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP Kola Ologbondiyan, it resolved as follows:
“NEC urged President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately declare a national state of emergency on security.
“NEC also urged President Buhari to, without delay, convoke a national conference on Security so as to galvanize ideas and options to tackle insecurity in our country.
“NEC further commended the efforts of governors, senators, House of Representatives members and other officials elected on the platform of the PDP in forcefully seeking solutions to the spate of insecurity in our country.
“With regard to the programmes of our party, NEC expressed satisfaction with the efforts of the NWC in preparation for the November 6 Governorship election in Anambra state and asserted its readiness to do everything possible, within the confines of the law, to win the election.”
