People’s Democratic Party (PDP), has stated the failure of Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, who was ordered to relocate to Benue by Buhari, President Federal Republic of Nigeria, showed that the president was losing control of his security chiefs.
PDP also noted that there are many reports of killings by herdsmen and Boko Haram controversies showed that the current administration lacks the will to win a war against the insecurity in the country.
National Coordinator of Grassroots Development Initiative, GDI, a PDP group, Bright Amewhule, said this in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, yesterday while receiving some members of All Progressives Congress, APC, who defected to PDP.
He said: “If the IG of police disobeyed the order of the president to relocate to Benue State and the president has not done anything, it means he (Buhari) has a misplaced priority alongside losing charge of the security chiefs.
“As the Chief Security Officer of the nation, he ought to be in charge. Buhari should take the lives of Nigerians seriously because that is what he swore an oath to do. The lives of the Nigerian citizens are handled like that of an animal. “President Buhari is not qualified to be in office if he cannot control the Inspector General of Police. He asked the IGP to relocate to Benue State but he refused, it shows that he (Buhari ) is not in charge of the Nation likewise his office.
“Every day we hear herdsmen killing innocent people and we have heard that the schoolgirls kidnapped in Dapchi are still in the hands of their abductors, it means the president is not serious with the security of lives and property of Nigerians. He should take the lives of Nigerians seriously.”
