Buhari is currently in the UK on what the presidency described as a “private visit”. Since he left, attacks by suspected bandits and kidnappers have continued in parts of the country, most recently in Daura, his hometown in Katsina state, and Zamfara state.
In a statement on Thursday, PDP spokesman Kola Ologbondiyan said Buhari’s absence has emboldened the attackers.
He asked the president to immediately cut short his so called ‘private trip’ and return to address the incessant killings in parts of the country.
“The Party describes as completely unacceptable for President Buhari to practically abandon his responsibilities, as the Commander-In-Chief, at least for now, to pursue unexplained private matters in foreign lands, while bandits, marauders and insurgents seize our nation; maim, kidnap and kill our citizens with reckless abandon,” Ologbondiyan said.
“President Buhari’s inattention has emboldened insurgents and bandits to continue to over-run communities, unleash mayhem and bloodletting on citizens in Borno, Zamfara, Yobe, Adamawa, Gombe Taraba, Kaduna, Benue, Kogi and other states of the federation, including Mr. President’s home state, Katsina.”
He accused the president of not demonstrating required capacity to tackle the insecurity in the country and “now resorts to cheap escapism.”
“The situation in Nigeria today signposts the terrible condition our nation will face if the Presidential mandate is not retrieved at the tribunal to enable competent and uncompromised hands to run the affairs of our country,” the statement added.
