Halt Your Feasting, Go To Dapchi, PDP Tells Buhari
The Peoples Democratic Party has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to halt the feasting with the All Progressives Congress chieftains in Aso Villa and show leadership by visiting Dapchi, Yobe State, to get a first hand information on the circumstances surrounding the abduction of the 110 schoolgirls.
The main opposition party said the move would bridge the disconnect between him and Nigerians, who it said daily lament the aloofness of their leader.
The PDP, in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, on Tuesday said it was disheartening that while the parents of the abducted daughters were wailing and the insurgents were fleeing, the President and his APC leaders were busy feasting in the Presidential Villa and “plotting their bound-to-fail 2019” re-election campaign.
“President Buhari has completely reneged on his assurances, before his election, to be a father to all and to lead the fight against insurgency from the fronts.
“Nigerians are worried that he has now allowed himself to be holed in the safety and luxury of the Presidential Villa while citizens are being slaughtered and taken captive by marauders and insurgents.”
