Replying a statement issued by the All Progressives Congress (APC), which mentioned that the security challenges were inherited from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), noting that the party handed over a united and stable Nigeria to the APC government led by President Muhammadu Buhari.
APC had stated it was responding to “false claims by the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, who stated that the Federal Government has lost control of the security situation.”
Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP National Publicity Secretary issued a statement titled ‘Stop Attacking Wike, You Compromised Security, PDP Replies APC.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) scolds the All Peoples Congress (APC) for attacking Governor Nyesom Wike, for exposing the failures of the APC and its administration, particularly their ignoble roles in the escalation of security challenges.
“The PDP asserts 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 statement ended.
