US Rescue Mission: Explain How You Handled Chibok Girls Abduction, APC Slams PDP

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has slammed the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for criticizing the President Muhammadu Buhari APC-led administration after the US Navy Seal successfully rescued an American citizen abducted in Northern Nigeria.

Challenging PDP to explain how it handled the abduction of Chibok girls in 2014, APC in a statement by Yakubu Nabena, the party's National Publicity Secretary on Sunday, alleged that PDP was trying to play politics with the US Navy rescue mission.

APC further accused PDP of trying to rubbish the country's security services who are currently working tirelessly to ensure the safety of Nigerians and to secure the Nation's territorial integrity.

“The PDP should explain to Nigerians how its immediate-past administration handled the 2014 abduction of 276 Chibok schoolgirls. To refresh the PDP’s memory, former British prime minister, David Cameron in his book, For the Record, said the Goodluck Jonathan PDP government was “sleeping on the wheel” when the schoolgirls were abducted.

“It is on record that that PDP government did nothing for two weeks after the Chibok schoolgirls abductions dismissing it as a grand political conspiracy while the schoolgirls were continually held and their families suffered in anguish.

“While the PDP still refuses to take responsibility for the tragedy up till now, the same PDP government rejected the British offer to help in the rescue of the Chibok schoolgirls.

“Combating terrorism and other emerging cross border crimes require international collaborations and assistance when necessary.

“As Commander-in-Chief of Nigeria’s Armed Forces, President Buhari swore a constitutional oath to protect lives and property of citizens. The president has consistently demonstrated that resolve throughout his administration. President Buhari’s reactions and actions after the similar and unfortunate Dapchi schoolgirls kidnapping is a pointer to how a responsive government should act”.

AllNews had on Sunday reported that the PDP said that the Rescue Mission by the US Navy seal was another confirmation of Buhari's failed administration.
