The Peoples Democratic Party has said President Buhari’s decision travelling abroad in time of worsening security situation in the country remains insensitive.
President Buhari who jetted out of the country on Friday is presently in Adisa baba in Ethiopia where he is attending the 33rd ordinary session of president and Governments of the African union
This was as Boko-haram members on Sunday killed no fewer than 30 inhabitants at a park in Auno, a linear settlement along Maiduguri Damaturu highway while president Buhari was in faraway Ethiopia.
Not satisfied with the said Developments, the people Democratic Party in a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbodiyan on Tuesday said in an ideal clime where insurgents murdered citizens like Anuo, a concerned president would have immediately left everything wherever he was and returned home in solidarity with his people.
The party said, “It is disheartening that instead of settling down at home and attending to the worsening insecurity under his watch, Mr President and his officials are busy globetrotting.
“The inaction of the Buhari regime spiralled wave of killings, banditry and kidnapping, particularly the Sunday carnage.
“It is alarming that all the Buhari government can offer in the face of the killings of our citizens are condolence statements with no decisive and significant action to track down the perpetrators and end insurgency in the country.”
The party stated that Nigerians are tired of empathetic statements from the presidency, commiserating the killings of scores of their fellows by marauders and criminals.
“What Nigerians want from the presidency is a significant action and not press releases full of empty claims and worthless assurances.
“Despite the sustained killings, including the massacre of the last three weeks in Gamboru, Gwoza and Dikwa in Borno State, Tawari in Kogi State, Kulben in Plateau State, Gumni, in Zamfara as well as in Kaduna and Yobe States, Buhari chose to continue to live in denial and self-praise, instead of taking a concrete action to end the carnage.”
