…Decries abduction of Niger students

The national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has called out the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, to settle and deport the mercenaries it engaged from neighbouring countries during the 2019 elections.
A former member of the APC, Alhaji Abubakar Garage had last week confessed that the APC imported people from neighbouring countries to assist the party to upstage former President Goodluck Jonathan.
President Muhammadu Buhari is among eminent Nigerians that have attributed the upsurge in banditry across the nation to foreigners.
Reacting to the abduction of several secondary school students in Niger state on Wednesday morning, the PDP Spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, said the party is alarmed by the recent escalation of banditry in Niger State as well as other parts of the country, following the failure of the Buhari-led APC administration to take a decisive step to tackle the scourge.
According to the party, Nigerians were jolted by the Tuesday’s coordinated bandit attacks, kidnapping and killings in several communities in Niger State.
Bandits were reported to have on Tuesday, moved from village to village, supported by a helicopter, as they pillaged our compatriots, sacked major highways and held communities in Niger state hostage for several hours without any counter-attack.
The PDP described as revealing that while the people of Niger state and Nigerians in other states were under attack by bandits, APC leaders, including those in Niger state, were busy pursuing their party’s phoney membership re-registration exercise, instead of rallying security and rescue efforts for the people.
“The lethargic stance of the APC administration towards the fight against banditry further validates reports in the public space that the bandits are connected to the APC and enjoying cover under the ruling party.
“This probably explains why the APC never raised a strong voice against what has become a national calamity. Instead, APC leaders are patronizing the bandits and making excuses for them.
“The public space is awash with reports that many of these bandits terrorizing Nigerians were political mercenaries brought in by the APC from neighbouring countries to help it enforce the rigging of the 2019 elections, but which the APC and its leaders failed to settle after the elections, leaving them to unleash their frustrations on innocent Nigerians.”
The party charged the APC to speak out on these reports and take immediate steps to settle their political mercenaries, return them to wherever they brought them from and bring an end to this gruesome attacks on Nigerians.
While commiserating with the victims of the Niger attacks, the PDP tasked the security forces to go after the bandits as well as rescue the Kagara school children before any harm comes upon them.
The PDP further urged Nigerians to remain vigilant and wary of the APC and its activities. It also calls on patriotic Nigerians to continue rallying around the opportunities created by democracy in the effort to rescue our nation from misrule and ensure lasting security for our country.
