ABUJA— Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has chided President Muhammadu Buhari for saying he was unaware that Inspector General of Police, IGP, , Ibrahim Idris, did not carry out his orders regarding the security situation in Benue State.Buhari-Idris
According to the party, such admission shows that the President is running an incompetent and uncoordinated government.
The party said President Buhari had irredeemably “indicted himself” for not knowing that the man tasked with the security of the nation failed to take orders from him (the Commander-in-Chief), stressing that such unpardonable gaffe was responsible for “government’s wrecking of the nation’s once robust economy as well as other woes that have befallen our nation in his almost three years in office.”
The PDP, in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, yesterday, urged All Progressives Congress, APC, and supporters of the President to take their minds off the Aso Villa ahead of 2019 elections now that their leader and sole candidate had practically admitted his incompetence to run an effective government as desired by Nigerians.
It said: “Nigerians have completely lost hope in President Muhammadu Buhari and his incompetent administration. By stating that he was unaware that the IGP only spent 24 hours in Benue State, Mr. President has confirmed that he has not been effectively monitoring the handling of the security situation of our nation.”
