The All Progressives Congress(APC) has tackled the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for “politicising” the rising insecurity in the country.
In a statement on Sunday, National Secretary of APC Caretaker Committee,John Akpanudoedehe, asked the PDP not to doubt President Muhammadu Buhari’s capacity to end the nation’s security woes.
Akpanudoedehe was reacting to a comment made by PDP governors, who said that the ruling party lacks the capacity to govern and restore peace in Nigeria.
He said the situation required all well-meaning citizens, including leaders of the opposition parties, to sit down and find how best it can be solved.
“Let no one be in doubt as to the urgency and capacity of the President Buhari-led government to end the recent security incidents,” the statement said.
The APC also assured that the president was doing his best to find a lasting solution to Nigeria’s challenges.
It advised the party against “politicising or being simplistic about the security situation” as “our duty to the nation as good citizens should outweigh political party colourations.”
“This is not the time to play to the gallery, but sit down to find real and lasting solutions, the latter is what the President Buhari administration is doing,” the statement said.
Many states in Nigeria have been witnessing a spike in criminal attacks in recent months.
