The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has said that the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, led Federal Government lacks the capacity to manage the nations’ security.
The opposition Party advised President Buhari and the APC to learn from US President Donald Trump how he managed the recent shooting in Florida.
PDP made the statement in Port Harcourt while receiving over 2000 members of Ikwerre Youth Movement, IYM, loyal to APC, who decamped to PDP through Grassroots Development Initiative, GDI.
Speaking at the occasion, the Publicity Secretary of PDP in Rivers State, Mr. Samuel Nwanosike, said: “The government is insensitive to the plights of the people of the nation. I don’t think the President knows he is the Chief Security Officer of the country.
“To us, look at what Donald Trump did in the case of Florida shooting, you see the kind of attention he gave to Americans that died, you will see what Nigerians want from our president. We in the PDP have been vindicated.”
The PDP further accused the FG of insensitivity to the plights of its citizens, stressing that the success of the war against insurgents was only in the media.
It insisted that the recent kidnap of 110 Dapchi girls was a proof that the dreaded Boko Haram sect has not been defeated as claimed by the Federal government.
“The abduction of the students in Dapchi shows that the government of President Muhammadu Buhari has failed in the promise they made to Nigerian that they will conquer and completely destroy Boko Haram and any other organization that portends danger to the lives of Nigerians adding that hunger and killings have characterized the nation,” Nwanosike added
