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

nation.

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

years.

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.

Kola Ologbondiyan
