The national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has condemned, in very strong terms, the murder of Senior Special Adviser on Security to Benue State Governor, AIG Christopher Dega (rtd), describing it as barbaric.
Reacting to the murder of by gunmen in Jos, Plateau state capital, the PDP said through its Spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, the it is an ominous sign given the recent attempts on the life of Governor Samuel Ortom by terrorists and bandits, marauding various parts of Benue state.
The party described the slain Dega as a very patriotic Nigerian and dutiful aide, who gave his all in the service of our dear fatherland and his home state, Benue.
The PDP charged the police to immediately go into action and follow the leads to apprehend and bring the assailants and their backers to justice.
The party also called on President Muhammadu Buhari “to end his lethargic approach to security matters and take decisive steps to end the activities of terrorists, bandits and vandals, who have been emboldened by his administration’s body language and overt failure”.
The PDP commiserates with Governor Ortom, the Dega family as well as the government and people of Benue state and prayed God to give all the fortitude to bear this sad episode in our national life.
Meanwhile, the party has berated the All Progressives Congress, APC, for attacking Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike, for exposing the failures of the APC and its administration, particularly their ignoble roles in the escalation of violence, killing and other acts of terrorism across our nation.
The PDP asserted that Governor Wike, in stating that the future of our nation cannot be left in the hands of the APC, directly spoke the mind of the majority of Nigerians across board.
“As such, any attack on Governor Wike, on this score, is a direct assault on the generality of Nigerians.
“Nigerians are aware that the PDP administration of President Goodluck Jonathan handed over a united and stable country to the APC and President Muhammadu Buhari after pushing terrorists to the fringes and conducting elections in all parts of our country.
“The APC has not denied the fact that it was on assumption of its office that terrorism resurged as APC leaders opened up our nation to terrorists, bandits and vandals, including those they brought in from neighboring countries, as political mercenaries to assist the APC to unleash violence on Nigerians during elections.
“Also, Nigerians are aware of how the APC administration shielded terrorism apologists in their cabinet; how APC leaders, on several occasions, made case for terrorists, asked Nigerians not to fight back in the face of aggression and even blamed victims of terrorism as witnessed in the case of 43 rice farmers who were beheaded by terrorists in Borno state.”
Our party noted that the APC has been deliberately compromising the security of our nation to allow for chaos, crisis and emergency situations in our country, for their selfish and unpatriotic gains. That also explains why the APC always attack well-meaning Nigerians who seek to unveil their plots.
“It is indeed unfathomable how the APC and its government, with all the apparatchik of governance available to them, can be looking helplessly and forcing our country into a state of turmoil if the situation in which Nigeria is sunk was not their design.
“As Governor Wike had said, in line with the consistent position of our party, it is clear that the future of Nigeria can never be left in the hands of an obtrusively incompetent, insensitive, vindictive and violent happy mass of failures like the APC.
“Moreover, the APC and its government have no propensity for peace; it has nobody in its political den to proffer approaches for a peaceful community of people and that is why they are always running to the PDP product in President Goodluck Jonathan for peacekeeping assignments across Africa and other parts of the world. Of course, one cannot give what he doesn’t have.
“It is therefore unfortunate that the APC will choose to live in perpetual self-denial over its inability and failure to ensure peace, unity, orderliness and cohesion in our country. “
Our party wants the APC to know that while they may gag their own members, they cannot stop other well-meaning Nigerians like Governor Wike from exposing the atrocities and failures of the APC.
