HassanTukur, FCT – Following the successful rescue of a citizen of the United States carried out by it’s troops in Nigeria, the major opposition party, the People’s Democratic Party has described the ruling administration of President Muhammadu Buhari as incompetent.
The party made this known in a statement made available to realpoliticsnigeria.ng.
The statement was of the view that the swift operation by the United States to rescue her citizen held hostage by bandits was a confirmation that the Buhari Presidency could neither secure the territorial integrity of our nation nor arrest the wave of insecurity ravaging our country under its watch.
The PDP described the situation as an international embarrassment showing how low the Buhari Presidency had come.
A part of the statement also cited the numerous attacks by bandits and abductors who the PDP alleged crossed the nation’s borders to wreck havoc on the citizens.
The rest of the statement criticised the president’s failure to lead from the front as he promised in 2015.
“It is indeed grossly disconcerting that under our Commander-in-Chief, a general, who had consistently promised to lead from the front, it took a foreign country to come on our soil to rescue their citizen, while hordes of our citizens are reportedly being held, tortured and killed in various kidnappers’ and insurgents’ dens in various parts of our nation.”
“Our party recalls that earlier in April, Nigeria was equally embarrassed by reports of how the Chadian President Idris Deby, personally led his troops to rout out insurgents and freed Nigerian territories and soldiers held captive by terrorists in northern part of Borno state, while our leaders recede into the safety and comfort of Aso Presidential Villa.”
The opposition party blamed the nation’s security woes solely on President Muhammadu Buhari who it accused of incompetence, lack of honesty and want of will power.
