Discredited politicians behind worsening insecurity -APC

By Muyiwa Ogundele

Says, PDP unqualified to speak on insecurity 
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said some unnamed politicians are behind the surging insecurity in the country.
The party said the politically motivated security incidents were being sponsored to discredit and destabilise the President Muhhamadu Buhari-led government. 
“These evil sponsors and perpetrators will soon be unravelled and made to face the full weight of the law,” the APC said Monday in a statement by the National Secretary of the Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), Senator John Akpanudoedehe.
The party while reassuring Nigerians that the security of the nation was of the highest priority said the Buhari administration was effectively deploying resources to ensure that all Nigerians go about their activities in peace and safety.
Besides, the APC said the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) lacked the capacity to criticise the government going by its negligent handling of insecurity while in power.
It reminded Nigerians how monies to buy arms were allegedly diverted under the PDP watch.
The statement said, “The PDP apparently chooses to forget how the same insecurity it now desperately seeks to politicise, metamorphosed and festered under its watch which ultimately led Nigerians to overwhelmingly reject it in the 2015 elections through their votes.
“Nigerians still recall how bad things got under the PDP to the extent that Muhammadu Buhari before he was elected President was attacked by terrorists in Kaduna State.
“The country’s capital, Abuja became the epicentre of Boko Haram attacks with brazen bomb attacks on the United Nations building, the Police Headquarters, recreation centres, markets, motor parks and Eagle Square where foreign heads of governments gathered to celebrate the country’s independence, among others.”
“Lest we forget monies meant to buy arms to fight insurgents was stolen and diverted to private pockets of PDP members and their cronies while Boko Haram seized Nigeria’s territory and hoisted their flags.
“This is no longer the case under the government of President Buhari. Security funds are no longer being pocketed and no inch of Nigeria’s territory is under the control of the now decimated insurgents.”
