The All Progressives Congress (APC) government’s recent wave of instability and the arrogance with which terrorists devastate the defenceless have been denounced by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
In a statement released on Wednesday, July 6, by the PDP’s national publicity secretary; Hon. Debo Ologunagba, the party claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari’s APC government was involved in the majority of the attacks.
The party asserted that the concurrent terrorist attacks on President Buhari’s advance guard in Katsina State ; as well as the correctional facility in Kuje, Abuja; highlight the breakdown of the security command and control structure.
The terrorist attack in Katsina, the fierce invasion; as well as the release of hundreds of terrorists and convicts from the Kuje Correctional Facility; according to the PDP, branded the APC-led administration as having failed, inefficient, and poorly planned.
The party claims that the country’s recent surge in terrorism has increased fears of APC collusion; adding that it further proves that Nigerians are no longer safe.
Additionally, it claimed that the APC was behind the unabated terrorist assaults in order to delay the 2023 general elections.
The statement read, “The failure of the APC administration to act on the intelligence provided by the Directorate of State Services (DSS) which on Tuesday, July 5, 2022, reportedly warned of an impending attack on the Kuje Correctional Facility gives credence to fears by Nigerians of complicity at a very high level of the APC administration.
“This is in addition to further reports that soldiers deployed to the precinct of the Kuje Correctional Facility and who had become familiar with the terrain were redeployed 24 hours before the terrorists attacked.
“The PDP demands that the APC government should come clean on who ordered the reported redeployment of soldiers; who failed to act on the intelligence provided by the DSS.
“Nigerians can recall the public confession by the Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai in the wake of the bloody Abuja-Kaduna terrorist attack that the APC-led administration knows the whereabouts and the plans of the terrorists ravaging our nation but deliberately refused to act.
”Nigerians will also recall how APC leaders publicly romanced and paid money to terrorists.”
