Following the security challenges in across Nigeria, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the last general election, Atiku Abubakar has told President Muhammodu Buhari to take responsibility.
He made this call while reacting to a report by an organisation, Centre for Diplomacy and Democracy, based in Washington DC, USA, accusing Mr Abubakar of the killings across Nigeria.
Paul Ibe who serves as Mr Abubakar media adviser, in a statement said such reports could cause further division and instability in the country.
”This is the deepest low that Muhammadu Buhari administration has gone in causing further division and promoting instability in Nigeria,”
”Anyone versed enough in the protocol of international NGOs will discern without much ado that the particular report by a faceless, insipid organisation known as ‘Centre for Diplomacy and Democracy’ was contrived with express mobilisation from officials of the Buhari administration in a shameless and disingenuous attempt to find a jejune explanation for the rising rate of insecurity in Nigeria.”
”It is so distasteful that the Buhari administration, rather than have a self-introspection and admit to the world that its policies and actions are responsible for the divisions in the country with the manifestation of all manner of crimes such as banditry, kidnapping and wanton killings across the land chooses to employ the service of a faceless NGO to blame the opposition for its own ineptitude.”
Mr Abubakar asked Mr Buhari to stop “infantile style of looking for whom to blame for his failures will not obliterate his abysmal record of performance in the past four years.”
”The Buhari administration and the ruling APC are renowned for propaganda stunt and double-speak. Sadly, it does not matter to them the disturbing number of criminalities happening on a daily basis in Nigeria”.
”In their warped thinking, the performance rate of security chiefs during times like this is determined on how much weight the Inspector General of Police has lost.”
”The question to ask is: how would the APC have reproved a president who makes such careless remarks on national security at a time when insecurity in the country has assumed epidemic proportions?”
”President Buhari and the APC have shown without equivocation that the job at hand is overwhelming for them. And because they lack the basic clue of how to tame the bogey that they have created, they now scamper around like school kids who have caused an upset in a highly sensitive science laboratory.
”Nigerians don’t pray for a president who passes the buck. All they want is a president who can hold the bull at the horn and get the job done. After all, President Buhari took an oath to defend the lives and property of the citizens, which is the primary responsibility of every government.”
