Fulani killing: PDP tells Buhari to come out clean on herdsmen activities

Fulani killing: PDP tells Buhari to come out clean on herdsmen activities”

AHEAD of the 2019 general elections, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday cautioned the police and other security agencies not to allow themselves to be used by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) as instruments of persecution against Nigerians perceived to be unsupportive of the unpopular re-election bid of President Muhammodu Buhari.

The president must take responsibility on the protection of life and property, which is the most important of his responsibilities. The party also described the committee set up by the Federal Government, headed by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to address the killings, as pretentious.

Some of the reports have said the PDP governors endorsed Sule Lamido, a former governor of Jigawa State, who is also making consultations for his 2019 run on the platform of the party.

"We therefore call on all well-meaning Nigerians to caution the APC.The fact that the APC is leaving office in 2019 has become inevitable and no one should be part of their desperation to completely ruin our nation before their exit", PDP added.

Apart from asking the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to obey court judgments and orders in respect of its handling of the probe of Ekiti State Government's finances, PDP said it was vehemently opposed to the unilateral withdrawal of $1 billion from the Excess Crude Account (ECA) by the federal government under any guise.

Mr. Ologbondiyan said the PDP NWC members, together with the governors, discussed issues of national importance and did not at any time consider taking any partisan position at the detriment of any of its members, contrary to some media reports.

"We condemn the massive corruption going on in the management of fuel subsidy regime which the federal government had earlier declared as non-existent while billions of naira are deducted monthly at Federation Accounts Committee (FAAC) meetings".

It said that it had mandated its members in the National Assembly to immediately commence the process of initiating a bill to address issues bothering on restructuring.

He also, scored his administration high in peace building, job and wealth creation, ensuring the implementation of the compulsory health insurance scheme, among others, disclosing that based on the love the people of the state have for the PDP, they voted massively for the party in the January 6, 2018 local government elections. "Neither the governors' forum nor the Federal Executive Council has the power of appropriation of Federation Accounts, as such powers reside with the National and State Assemblies". We commend the judiciary for their commitment to the enthronement of constitutional democracy in the face of intimidation and harassment.

Abia State Governor Okezie Ikpeazu has urged Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members to get their voter cards to enable them to vote for candidates of their choice in next year's elections.
