The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) asserts that the refusal by the
Buhari Presidency to expose the names of sponsors of terrorism in
Nigeria, vindicates its position that the All Progressives Congress
(APC) government has been providing official cover for terrorists and
bandits pillaging the nation.
The PDP position is predicated on the declaration of the Buhari
Presidency that it was not interested in making public, the names of six
Nigerians reportedly sent to the Federal Government by the United Arab
Emirates (UAE) as sponsors of terrorism in our country.
The PDP holds that the decision of the APC-led government to cover the
identity of sponsors of mindless mass killings, maiming, rapping,
kidnapping of our compatriots as well as the endless violent marauding
of our communities under the APC watch, validates our stand that such
individuals have connections with the APC.
This unpatriotic stance by the Buhari Presidency raises serious national
anxieties of high-level complicity in the administration and further
explains the reported compromising of our security system in the
escalated killings and acts of terrorism in our country in the last six
years under the APC.
Nigerians can see why the APC-led administration has failed to take
decisive steps to tackle terrorism, why it prefers to negotiate with
terrorists and even makes case for them, instead apprehending and
prosecuting them, as witnessed in the beheading of rice farmers in Borno
The PDP had always alerted of a connection between the APC and
terrorists ravaging various parts of our nation and how the APC, as a
party, had always failed to forcefully condemn acts of terrorism in our
Nigerians can recall how the APC vehemently defended and still habours
the Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, a
self-confessed terrorism apologist, despite national outcry and demand
for his sack.
Also, the APC has failed to account for the bandits, thugs and hoodlums
it imported from neighboring countries to unleash violence on Nigerians
and muscle the 2019 elections.
If the APC and its administration have nothing to cover, our party
challenges them to immediately publish the names of the sponsors of
terrorism given to it by the UAE, instead of this vexatious desperation
to provide official cover for them.
