APC, Buhari want to use terrorist attacks to stall 2023 poll- PDP

The major opposition, the  Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has condemned the spate of insecurity under  All Progressives Congress (APC) administration.

The opposition party  in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Hon Debo Ologunagba, Wednesday, said that the APC government led by President Muhammadu Buhari is complicit in most of the attacks.

The party added that the APC led government as failed, saying that the administration is ineffective and uncoordinated.

The party noted that the ferocious invasion and the freeing of hundreds of terrorists and criminals from the Kuje Correctional Facility shows that President Buhari has lost control of the security of the nation.

According to the party,  the unchallenged terrorist attacks are plots by the APC to stall the 2023 general elections.

The statement partly read, “The failure of the APC administration to act on the intelligence provided by the Directorate of State Services (DSS) which on Tuesday July 5, 2022 reportedly warned of an impending attack on the Kuje Correctional Facility gives credence to fears by Nigerians of complicity at very high level of the APC administration.

“This is in addition to further reports that soldiers deployed to the precinct of the Kuje Correctional Facility and who had become familiar with the terrain were redeployed 24 hours before the terrorists attacked.

“The PDP demands that the APC government should come clean on who ordered the reported redeployment of soldiers and who failed to act on the intelligence provided by the DSS.

“Nigerians can recall the public confession by the Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai at the wake of the bloody Abuja-Kaduna terrorist attack that the APC-led administration knows the whereabouts and the plans of the terrorists ravaging our nation but deliberately refused to act. Nigerians will also recall how APC leaders publicly romanced and paid money to terrorists.”
