PDP Knocks Over Pass Mark On Security

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has knocked President Muhammadu Buhari for scoring his administration high in security.

The PDP wondered how Buhari came about the pass mark he gave his administration in the face of bandit attacks and insurgency in the northeast.

The party through its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, also lamented the loss of businesses and the increase in unemployment in the country.

The PDP said: “How does President Buhari want an unmerited pass mark, knowing that under his watch, bandits, terrorists, kidnappers and vandals who had been pushed to the fringes before he took over in 2015, have now resurged, taking communities hostage, raping our women, beheading our compatriots and foisting a reign of terror to the extent that our nation ranked as the third country with the highest level of terrorism in 2019, after Iran and Afghanistan?

“How does President Buhari sleep in the night, knowing that millions of Nigerians go to bed on empty stomach; that since he took over, more than 30 million businesses have crumbled; that over 60 million Nigerians have lost their means of livelihood resulting in excruciating hardship in our country in the last five years?

“It is unfortunate that President Buhari wants Nigerians to overlook the fact that he wrecked a robust economy handed over to him in 2015 with Fitch B+ rating as one of the fastest growing economy in the world and turned our nation into the world’s poverty capital and a beggar nation, that is now borrowing from all parts of the world?’’
