The All Progressives Congress, APC, has informed Nigerians that the insecurity the President Muhammadu Buhari administration is battling started under the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
The APC accused the PDP of handling the Boko Haram insurgency in an inept and incompetent manner.
In a statement issued on Wednesday by the National Secretary of APC, John Akpan Udoedehe, while reacting to the “lie” by Rivers Governor, Nyesom Wike that the federal government had lost control of security.
Udoedehe said the remark by Wike was against the continuous efforts of security forces toiling day and night.
The Secretary insisted that troops have rolled back the Boko Haram insurgency “to a small part on the shores of Lake Chad”.
He recalled that terrorists once attacked places of worship, markets and gathering of citizens in many states before the government galvanised and equipped the Armed Forces.
“It is ironic that the dictator at the Rivers State government house has forgotten so soon that kidnapping for ransom, like the Boko Haram insurgency, did not start under this administration, but every effort is being made to stop it along with its twin evil of banditry.”
The party stressed that the federal government has consistently worked for the best interest of Nigeria.
The APC said it will not be distracted by the antics of the PDP designed to mislead Nigerians into assuming that the platform they rejected in 2015 and 2019 is worthy of their trust.
“A leopard cannot change its spots. The PDP is clearly in disarray. It was a failure in governance and a shocking failure as an opposition party.”
