“Is it also not provocative, vexatious and indeed the height of heartlessness that APC and its leaders party while Nigeria burns?
The opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) of insensitivity to the killings in the country and other challenges Nigerians are suffering from.
The PDP in a statement on Sunday said it is callous and an assault on the sensibility of Nigerians for many government leaders to have gathered on Saturday in Katsina State for the turbaning ceremony of President Muhammadu Buhari’s son, Yusuf.
Recall that Yusuf was turbaned as the new District Head of Kwasarawa, Duara in Katsina State. He was turbaned as Taliban Daura by the Emir of Daura, Alhaji Umar Farouk.
The event attracted the presence of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Senate President Ahmad Lawan, SGF Boss Mustapha, Ministers, State Governors, and many other top government functionaries.
However, the PDP in a statement on Sunday signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Hon. Debo Ologunagba said it is worrying that the APC-led federal government felt comfortable ignoring the escalating violence in several parts of the country caused by bandits, terrorists, and other criminals and chose to have a lavish ceremony in Katsina State.
The party called on President Muhammadu Buhari to visit the states where there have been fresh cases of violence and urgently adress the worsening security challenges in the country.
According to the PDP, The least Nigerians expect of the APC is to forcefully give its government a marching order to develop wholesome strategy to proactively tackle insecurity, including targeting the source of fund to terrorists, many of which were revealed by a foreign government, yet the APC government refused to take action.
“Unfortunately, the APC as a party of selfish and blood thirsty “political bandits” does not have the commitment, readiness or capacity to do so.
We also urge Nigerians not to resign to despondency but continue to support one another and remain focused as we scale up our collective efforts to rescue and rebuild our nation from misrule.”
