The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has alleged that the All Progressives Congress, APC, is responsible for the banditry being experience in the Northern part of the country
The main opposition party said that the mercinaries the APC deployed during the 2019 general elections were the elements that metamorphosed into bandits.
In a statement by PDP’s National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP condemned the APC government for failure to to quell the persistent killing of Nigerians in Katsina, Sokoto, Zamfara, Borno, Kaduna,
Kogi, Taraba and other parts of the country.
Ologbondiyan said that the party holds that the situation where marauders and insurgents, who had been pushed to the fringes by its administration, had resurged under the APC, to the extent of occupying territories, ravaging communities and killing our citizens with reckless abandon, raises a lot of questions.
He called on Nigerians to note that the APC has failed to account for the whereabouts of the political ‘mercenaries’ it imported into our country from neighboring countries, particularly from Chad and Niger
Republic, to participate in its campaigns during the build-up to the 2019 general elections.
The worsening security situation in the country have become a source of verbal fireworks between Nigeria’s two major political parties with each said blaming the other for the deteriorating situation.
