The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says the inaction of the Buhari administration on the spiraled wave of killings, banditry and kidnapping, particularly the Sunday carnage in Auno, Borno state, by insurgents, has left the nation with no other option than to hold that the Buhari Presidency has abandoned Nigerians.

The party in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, described as alarming that all the Buhari Presidency 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 PDP said it is disheartening that instead of settling down at home and attending to the worsened insecurity under his watch, Mr. President and his officials are busy globetrotting.

The party notes that in normal climes, with the situation in Auno, where insurgents viciously massacred our citizens, a concerned President would have immediately left everything, wherever he is, and return home in solidarity with our nation as well as the victims and lead from the front, in confronting the insurgents, in line with the demand of his office and the promise he made to Nigerians.

“But no! All the Buhari Presidency could do is to issue statements of condemnation, without a corresponding decisive action; thereby leaving the citizens at the mercy of insurgents, marauders and kidnappers.

“Indeed, what Nigerians want from the Presidency is a significant action and not press releases full of empty claims and worthless assurances”, the party said.

The PDP laments that 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, the Buhari Presidency chose to continue to live in denial and self-praise, instead of taking any concrete action to end the carnage.
