PDP ask Buhari to speak on Chadian military invasion of Nigerian territories in pursuit of terrorists

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to “speak out on reports that Chadian President Idris Deby personally led his troops to rout out insurgents and freed Nigerian territories and soldiers held captive by terrorists in northern part of Borno State.

In a statement in Abuja on Tuesday, PDP Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, said that the “the party’s call is predicated on the fact that this development is already triggering questions among Nigerians regarding the commitment and capacity of Mr. President, as Commander-in-Chief, to lead the fight against insurgency in our country.

“The PDP is worried that the silence of President Buhari who, as Commander-in-Chief, had promised to lead from the front, is ominous and has opened our security apparatchik to a plethora of innuendos, claims and counter-claims in the public space.”

The PDP, the statement stated, “is worried that Mr. President has chosen silence at a time, when again, he needs to stand up and take action to assure our citizen of their safety as well as efforts being made by his administration against the insurgent. The PDP urges the Buhari Presidency to learn from President Deby and show commitment in the fight against terrorism beyond speeches and empty press statements from the comfort of the Aso Villa.

“The party commends and immensely values the sacrifices by our gallant troops who are risking their lives on harm’s way to safeguard our nation against the insurgents despite the daunting challenges they confront daily. The PDP also calls on all Nigerians to remain vigilant and continue to pray for our nation at this trying time.”
