A statement issued and signed by Kola Ologbondiyan, National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, said “the party is shocked that at the time Nigerians expected the Presidency to take immediate steps to restore order, safeguard the lives of the people, exert justice and bring succor to victims, the Buhari Presidency toed the path of divisiveness, which is capable of worsening the tensed situation in the state”.

“It is unfortunate that rather than taking actions to get to the roots of killings and banditry in the land, resorted to political colorations by engaging in his usual blame game of unnamed politicians”, the statement read.

“It is equally disgusting that the Buhari Presidency relegated the main issue of the murder of our citizens and how to track down the perpetrators and bring them to book, thus confirming the fears of most Nigerians that this administration does not care about the lives of the people”.

According to the statement, “PDP insists that the basic responsibility of government, which is to ensure the safety and harmonious living of all Nigerians, ensure that our laws apply at all times and circumstances, without any fear or favour, has been completely abdicated by the Buhari administration, thereby leaving our people at the mercy of marauders”.

“Moreover, it is shocking that the President, as the father of our nation had no soothing or reassuring words for the agonizing victims of the attack but aggravated their pains with the unguarded comments attributed to him by his media aide”.

The PDP therefore demands an unreserved apology from President Buhari for his comments and manifest insensitivity to the plight of the victims of the Plateau massacre, the National Publicity Secretary concluded in the statement.
