Killings: PDP Calls Out APC Over Conspiracy of Silence…Says APC Is Architect of Buhari’s Misrule

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says the All Progressives Congress
(APC) has again displayed its insensitivity and anti-people stance by
encouraging President Muhammadu Buhari to visit his cattle ranch instead
of  Kankara, in his home Katsina state, were 600 students where abducted
by suspected terrorists.

The PDP says by not impressing it on President Buhari to cut short his
unnecessary holiday and make efforts to  rescue the abducted students,
the APC has again shown that it is a party of ‘political bandits’, which
has no iota of concern for the wellbeing of Nigerians.

Indeed, the preference for the welfare of Mr. President’s cattle over
the safety of our young students, who are now languishing in their
abductors’ den, foregrounds APC’s disdain for Nigerians, for which it
should never be entrusted with governance at any level in future.

Our party and, indeed, discerning Nigerians are not surprised that the
APC, as a party, has not forcefully condemned the kidnapping of the
students even as it has not raised any strong voice against the recent
gruesome killing of 43 farmers in Borno state by terrorists.

Rather, the APC has tacitly supported the insensitive comment by the
Buhari Presidency, which blamed the slain farmers instead of taking
steps to apprehend the assailants.

Our party charges the APC to come clean on this manifest conspiracy of
silence as such silence, in the face of horrific killing and kidnapping
of innocent Nigerians, only points to the complicity of its leaders.

The APC leaders must explain their interests in acts of violence and
terrorism ravaging our country, particularly, given that many of them,
including some state governors, had admitted establishing contacts with
and even paying ransom to bandits.

Moreover, the admission by a terrorist group of being responsible for
the Kankara abduction, after the APC government in the state had
informed the public that bandits were responsible and that it was
already in contact with the said bandits, raises critical questions on
the integrity of the claims by the APC government.

Furthermore, our party recalls that the APC has failed to account for
the whereabouts of political mercenaries they imported from neigbouring
countries, particularly Chad and Niger Republic, to unleash violence on
voters in the 2019 general elections.

The escalation of banditry during and since after the 2019 elections,
therefore calls for explanations by the APC and its leaders.

Furthermore, our party strongly rejects the unfolding ploy by the APC to
set up, ridicule and paint President Buhari as being solely responsible
for their collective failure in governance.

The PDP, standing with Nigerians, insists that the APC must not be
allowed to hide under the failure of President Buhari to launder its
image as it is the real architect of the misrule of the Buhari
administration.

The APC must answer for its atrocities and fake promises and not think
that by abandoning the Buhari Presidency at the eleventh hour and by
embarking on name change and orchestrated expulsion of some its state
governors and leaders, it will be exonerated by Nigerians.
