It also told Buhari to seek for help, alleging that the Buhari administration has no solution to the alleged festering problems in the Country.

Spokesman of the main opposition party, Kola Ologbondiyan said this in a statement on Saturday in Abuja.

It said, “Buhari should show humility and accept the bitter truth that poverty, internal conflicts, bloodletting, banditry, kidnapping, insurgency, abuse of human rights and general national insecurity have escalated under his
divisive, vindictive and repressive administration.

The PDP further holds that the UN report is a vindication of its stance as well as that of millions of Nigerians that the ineptitude and repressive tendencies of the All Progressives Congress (APC) administration under President Buhari are emboldening acts on violence and fuelling impunity, division and intolerance in the polity.

“Today, Nigeria is becoming one of the most insecure places to live. Citizens can no longer move freely around their country as marauders, kidnappers, insurgents and bandits take over the highways, pillage communities, kill and take citizens captive at will”.

The PDP alleged further that the Buhari Presidency would be doing a great disservice to Nigerians especially those in communities are being ravaged by insurgency, banditry, kidnapping and ethnic clashes should it fight persons and organisations that tell the truth rather than seeking solutions.

Also, the PDP holds that at the moment, what ought to be paramount to the
Buhari Presidency should not be the sentiments of regime image but the
welfare and security of vulnerable Nigerians.

It therefore, cautioned Buhari’s handlers on their alleged unguarded statements on grave national issues.

Ologbondiyan stressed that, “Buhari should immediately accept responsibility for his failures and seek help since he has not demonstrated the capacity to effectively led a nation as complex as Nigeria at the moment.

“The truth can be bitter, but in its acceptance lies the solution”, the statement said.
