PDP tasks Buhari on liberation of Nigerian territories from Boko Haram

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Tuesday tasked president Muhammadu to free Nigerian territories invaded by insurgents, especially in the northeast.

It also urged Buhari to learn from the Chadian President Idris Deby, who personally led his troops to kick out insurgents and freed Nigerian territories and soldiers held captive by terrorists in the northern part of Borno state.

The PDP’s call, however, was predicated on the triggering questions among Nigerians regarding the commitment and capacity of Mr. President, as Commander-in-Chief, to lead the fight against insurgency in our country.

The party’s spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan said this in a statement made available to newsmen in Abuja.

Parr of the statement reads, “The PDP is worried that the silence of President Buhari who, as Commander-in-Chief, had promised to lead from the front, is ominous and has opened our security apparatus to a plethora of innuendos, claims and counter-claims in the public space.

“Our party is worried that Mr. President has chosen silence at a time when he needs to stand up and take action to assure our citizens of their safety as well as efforts being made by his administration against the insurgent.

“The PDP urges the Buhari Presidency to learn from President Deby and show commitment in the fight against terrorism beyond speeches and empty press statements from the comfort of the Aso Villa.

“The party commends and immensely values the sacrifices by our gallant troops who are risking their lives in harm’s way to safeguard our nation against the insurgents despite the daunting challenges they confront daily.

“The PDP also calls on all Nigerians to remain vigilant and continue to pray for our nation at this trying time”.
