Jonathan can’t handle insecurity now, Buhari in charge — PDP


The Peoples Democratic Party has asked the All Progressives Congress to quit giving excuses for the “gross incompetence” of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), to manage Nigeria’s exacerbating security under his watch.

Public Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan said this in a phone interview Abuja, on Sunday.

He was reacting to a question on a comment by ex-President Goodluck Jonathan who in a recent interview said he was not in the best situation to discuss Nigeria’s security circumstance right now.

Ologbondiyan said, “First, we would like to advise the APC to deliver what they promised Nigerians and stop making excuses for their failure to secure Nigeria and Nigerians six years after taking power.

“Yes, there was a level of insecurity when President Goodluck Jonathan was there, but it never got to this level when Nigerians are being picked up from their homes by kidnappers.

“It never got to this stage when even state governors have become so helpless that they now negotiate with bandits and kidnappers on the amount of money to pay as ransom to free citizens from captivity.

“By the time President Jonathan left office, Boko Haram was degraded and forced to take refuge in the fringes of the Lake Chad Basin.

“What do you have today? terrorists, bandits and hoodlums running all over the place under the watch of a retired general of the Nigerian Army who by the way is still the Commander-In-Chief of the Armed Forces.

“President Jonathan has played his part, President Muhammadu Buhari who begged Nigerians for votes with a promise to make their lives better, swearing by the Holy Quran to protect Nigerian lives and property is the man who has been in charge and is still in charge. President Buhari is in the best position to explain why he has kept the service chiefs for six years while precious Nigerian lives are being lost every day.”
