Shooting In Villa: PDP Alarmed, Charges President Buhari to Speak Out

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is alarmed by the reported shooting
and security breaches within the precincts of the Presidential villa
following a reported degenerated squabble among family members and
officials of the Buhari Presidency.

The PDP is deeply worried that the protracted spat between the First
Lady, Aisha Buhari, and aides of President Muhammadu Buhari has now
degenerated into violent combats, raids and free use of firearms within
the Presidential villa.

The party described as distressing, the report that a members of Mr.
President’s family were at scene of the assault against one of President
Buhari’s aides, during which the First Lady’s security details were
alleged to have resorted to the use of firearms.

Our party is disturbed by such ugly situation in the Buhari Presidency,
which has already heightened apprehensions in the public space over the
apparent failure of security architecture and central command system in
the presidency leading to such reckless and irresponsible breaches.

The chaotic situation in the Presidential villa only points to the
failure by President Buhari to provide a leadership that can guarantee
orderliness in governance and effectively ensure the security of our

The PDP notes that such leadership failure at the highest level has
further exposed why our nation has been bedeviled by myriads of security
and economic problems under President Buhari’s watch in the last five

More worrisome is that the Buhari Presidency had failed to speak out on
the frightening situation so as to reassure Nigerians and douse the
tension in the polity; especially at this critical time when our nation
is facing serious security challenges.

The PDP therefore calls on President Buhari to take immediate steps to
restore order in his Presidency and shield our security system from the
division and power tussle among persons close to him.

Our party also demands for an immediate inquest into the security
breaches as well as the alleged violation of COVID-19 ban on inter-state
travels by officials and relations of Mr. President, which was reported
to be part of the immediate causes of latest disturbances in the
Presidential villa.

Furthermore, the PDP urges the National Assembly to save the nation by
wading into the persistent infighting in the Buhari Presidency
especially as those in charge of the Presidential villa has not
demonstrated the required capacity to engender the needed orderliness
for productive governance.
