As the rate of militancy increases in the Niger Delta, the Ogun state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, on Friday, lambasted the President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government for losing control of governance.
This was contained in a statement signed by the Publicity Secretary in the state party, Malik Olamilekan Ibitoye.
The party accused the President of having a lackluster attitude to issues of national importance, saying that the latest bombing of oil installations in the Niger Delta is condemnable and disgusting.
“Our belief is that the Federal Government now occupies itself with unimportant matters and neglect priorities during this emergency period.”
“To say that Nigeria is going through her worst moment is to say the least, and the lack lustre approach of President Muhammadu Buhari to issues is condemnable.”
“The bombings of the facilities of Chevron Oil, Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Mobil Oil and the latest bombings in Bayelsa State amongst others are appalling, disgusting, unprecedented and should be condemned by all right thinking members of the public.”
While noting that the increased spate of bombing could plunge the country into further crisis, the party said, “It is now clear that the Nigerian government should go back to the report of the National Constitutional Conference organised by former president Goodluck Jonathan as this addresses various issues affecting the country.”
“We cannot fold our arms when issues that are threatening the very existence of Nigeria is playing out daily and we wonder why Buhari has failed to make hays, while the sun shines.”
“Some of the happenings in the country are rubbishing what the PDP achieved for Nigeria from 1999 to 2015 and we must all join hands to put a stop to this mess if we are serious about nation building.”
