The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that the seeds of the insecurity which the APC administration is currently containing was sown by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) administation when it handled the Boko Haram insurgency in an inept and incompetent manner.
The party which revealed it is in response to claims by the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, who accused the Federal Government of losing control of the security situation.
According to the APC, the remarks by the Rivers state governor, whose party members call a dictator, flies against the continuous efforts of our security forces who are toiling day and night and successfully rolled back the Boko Haram insurgency it inherited to a small part on the shores of Lake Chad.
“Nigerians can recall that the insurgents once attacked places of worship, markets and gathering of citizens in many states of the Federation before the APC administation led by President Muhammadu Buhari galvanised and equipped the armed forces to degrade their capacity to strike all over the country.”
“The APC administration has consistently worked for the best interest of Nigeria and will not be distracted by the antics of the PDP designed to mislead Nigerians into assuming that the PDP they rejected in free and fair elections in 2015 and 2019 is worthy of their trust.
“A leopard cannot change its spots. The PDP is clearly in disarray. It was a failure in governance and a shocking failure as an opposition party. Nigerians cannot risk the country’s future in the hands of the same political party that brought the rot the APC administration is clearing,” it declared.
