The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) he said there is no evidence a Federal Government exists due to the level of insecurity in the country.
Addressing a press conference on Friday, the PDP National Chairman, Uchenna Secondus asked, ‘do we still have a government?’ while stating that level of “bloodletting occasioned by the barrage of criminalities across the country can only be happening in a country without government.”
Secondus said the security situation has been such that prominent Nigerian clerics have been raising serious concern on the issue of leadership, even questioning whether we really have a Commander-in-Chief in this country.
“There is no evidence of the presence of government in this country as crimes of all kinds are committed all over the country and Nigerians have never lived in such great fear and trembling for their lives.
“From Kaduna to Zamfara, Benue to Taraba, Plateau, Lagos to Enugu etc., bloodletting is continuing unabated, even the President’s home state of Katsina has lost about eight local government areas to bandits, not to talk of the North East.”
“Things got even worse as the remaining goodwill of the people on this government vanished after it arm-twisted the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, into tampering with the will of the people in the February 23 Presidential and National Assembly Elections,” he said.
The PDP chairman recalled that last week a female foreign humanitarian worker, Faye Mooney, a Briton was brutally shot dead in Kajuru, Kaduna state.
He lamented that the situation has deteriorated to the extent that the country can no longer protect the lives of international aid workers who are here to help us clear our mess.
He said: “The senseless continuous bloodletting in Kaduna state should be blamed on the type of provocative leadership existing in that state and indirectly encouraged by the federal government.
“The ‘body bag’ governor in the state does not seem to know how to engender peace among the people, his actions and utterances facilitate instead of ameliorating the ill feelings among the people.”
Secondus therefore called on Nigerian Leaders to speak up on the situation in the country and not wait until the “nation finally grounds to halt.”
