The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Board of Trustees, BoT, has blamed the President Bola Tinubu-led administration for the killings, banditry, kidnappings, and terrorism in Nigeria.

PDP BoT said the laid back attitude of Tinubu’s administration was responsible for the insecurity Nigeria is witnessing in the last nine months.

In a communiqué issued after its meeting in Abuja on Tuesday, the PDP BoT lamented that the “situation in the country has become unbearable.”

The party noted that there is “no concrete and coherent policy, measures and steps by the APC administration to address these existential threats, which have put the country in a precarious situation.”

The communique reads: “The BoT is alarmed by the worsening insecurity in the country, as evident in the rising cases of mass killings, banditry, kidnap for ransom and acts of terrorism by assailants who are emboldened by the manifest laidback attitude of the APC administration to issues of security, especially in the last nine months.

“These have attendant negative consequences, as evident in the nearly 30 per cent inflation rate, 41 per cent unemployment rate and alarming 46 per cent poverty rate where up to 130 million citizens have sunk deeper into multidimensional poverty in the last nine months.”

The party opposition said the “catastrophic economic and security situation in the country has left Nigerians hopeless, despondent, angry and constitutes a present and immediate threat to the survival of the country as hardworking young Nigerians, professionals in critical fields, and major multinational companies are now leaving our nation in droves.”
