The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said the President Buhari’s visit to Borno State was irrelevant, as he had no reassuring words for the people. This is due to the reports made that the President received widespread booing at his coming which was fuelled by the opposing party.
All these happened during the recent visit of the President Muhammadu Buhari to Borno State to sympathize with the family of the vicitims who were killed by suspected Boko Haram members.
The party's National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said that Nigerians have lost confidence in this administration due to the recurring security crisis.
"It is indeed an unpardonable height of thoughtlessness and leadership failure for the Buhari presidency to accuse victims of terrorism; a brokenhearted people, including those who have been orphaned, widowed, maimed, rendered homeless and living in agony and fear, of being bribed to boo the president during his media stunt visit.
“Our party holds that an honest and concerned presidency would be more interested in taking decisive steps to tackle the security challenges which has festered under it, instead of engaging in shadow-chasing, blackmail, propaganda and unnecessary media stunt visit, which itinerary did not include the victims of the attacks.
He had no decisive policy thrust to track down the killers, yet his handlers expected the mourning people to clap for him,” he said.
The party also urged President Buhari to visit other states of the federation by road and see the state of things himself, perhaps that would awaken his urge to do better.
