Insecurity: PDP raises posers over insurgents’ attacks

Share This

By Lawrence Olaoye

The ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday raised questions over the timing and regularity of attacks perpetrated by the insurgents in the country, submitting that such were carried out to cow the people, destabilize the polity and destroy the future of the nation.

The party, in a statement signed by its National Secretary, Professor Wale Oladipo, said the latest bombing of the Kano School of Hygiene and the attacks on some Kaduna communities conformed with certain patterns, which betrayed a trend tailored against the PDP and the federal government.

The statement read in part: “We have observed that it has become a recurrent decimal that whenever the PDP or the Federal Government records or is about to record a major milestone, insurgents launch attacks on the people, the most recent being the Kano and Kaduna attacks which came at the wake of PDP’s victory in Ekiti state last Saturday and ahead of the ground-breaking and unveiling ceremony of the Centenary City by President Goodluck Jonathan, on Tuesday.

“We are compelled to invite Nigerians to critically examine the timing and mode of the series of attacks since the emergence of the current administration and make deductions regarding whose interest they serve.

“Are there elements who desperately use these attacks to attempt to slow the tempo of governance and further their efforts to discredit the PDP-led administration as a means to achieve political control?

“We had earlier raised our concerns over a connection or correlation between the attacks and the capacity of a major opposition party to thrive. We noted that a party which had lost its voice suddenly regained its drive and impetus after the abduction of the Chibok school girls and the Nyanya bomb blast”, the party stated.

While reiterating the steadfastness of the ruling party in its commitment to the Nigerian project, the PDP scribe commiserated with the victims of the deceased at their survivors.
