The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has requested the Department of State Services (DSS) and other security agencies to address Senator Godswill Akpabio, the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs.
The PDP’s spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, released a statement on Friday urging the secret service to force Akpabio to “name politicians in the All Progressives Congress who are behind the acts of terrorism and banditry ravaging our country.”
According to the statement, “there is self-professed evidence that Senator Akpabio has access to such terrorism-related details that he must be forced to share with the DSS and other security agencies.”
According to the opposition party, its call is focused on remarks made by the Minister at the APC national secretariat in Abuja on Thursday, who said that terrorism in our country is “politically motivated” and the work of infiltrators from neighbouring countries.
“It is instructive to state that Senator Akpabio’s disclosure offers further insight into APC leaders’ alleged association with terrorist elements, who allegedly infiltrated our country after being imported as political mercenaries by the APC from neighbouring countries to assist it in unleashing violence to rig the 2019 general elections.
“The PDP calls on Nigerians to remember that the APC and its leaders have refused to account for these mercenaries and have remained silent in the face of widespread calls from Nigerians for the APC to return these killers to wherever they were brought,” the statement continued.
Moreover, Senator Akpabio’s position also points to the shocking unmasking of a member of the APC led Federal Executive Council, the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, as a terrorism apologist.
It is quite revealing that despite Pantami’s confession of being a terrorism apologist, the Buhari Presidency had granted him official cover, while the APC had continued in its conspiratorial silence in the face of escalated killings and occupation of parts of our nation by terrorists.
Our party can also recall how the APC government, instead of going after the assailants, rather blamed the 43 rice farmers, who were last year beheaded by terrorists in Borno state, accusing them of not getting permission before going about their legitimate business in their own country.
Nigerians can also recall how some governors elected on the platform of the APC Were seen having photo-ops with gun-wielding bandits in addition to their vehement opposition to PDP’s call on the Federal Government to impose a national emergency on security.
The stance of the APC and its administration have continued to embolden terrorists to escalate their activities to the extent that our natioN-now ranks third in the world terrorism index.
Now that Senator Akpabio has shown that he has certain information regarding the spur for escalated acts of terrorism in our country, our party urges the DSS and other security agencies to immediately invite him for questioning to expose the politicians in his party that are behind the ugly situation in our country.
