Borno booing: Stop chasing shadows, PDP tells presidency

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said that the Presidency should stop chasing shadows and resort to falsehood and blackmail concerning the booing of President Muhammadu Buhari in Maiduguri, Borno State on Wednesday.
PDP in a statement Thursday by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan accused the president of aloofness to the plight of Nigerians and communities being daily ravaged by terrorists, bandits and insurgents.
The party said the ordeal of the president was self-inflicted, and advised President Buhari to accept the bitter truth that Nigerians no longer have confidence in him.
“It is indeed an unpardonable height of thoughtlessness and leadership failure for the Buhari presidency to accuse victims of terrorism; a brokenhearted people, including those who have been orphaned, widowed, maimed,  rendered homeless and living in agony and fear, of being bribed to boo the President during his media stunt visit.
“Our party holds that an honest and concerned presidency would be more interested in taking decisive steps to tackle the security challenges which has festered under it, instead of engaging in shadow-chasing, blackmail, propaganda and unnecessary media stunt visit, which itinerary did not include the victims of the attacks.
“Moreover, during the visit, Mr. President had no significant soothing words of assurance for the people; he had no decisive policy thrust to track down the killers, yet his handlers expected the mourning people to clap,” the party said.
PDP said the reaction of Nigerians in Borno represents the opinion of majority of Nigerians and the international community.
