The Peoples Democratic Party is alarmed by the reported shooting and security breaches within the precincts of the Presidential villa following a reported degenerated squabbles among family members and officials of Buhari's Presidency.

The PDP officials is deeply worried that the protracted spat between the First Lady, Aisha Buhari and aides of President Buhari has now degenerated into violent combats, raids and free use of firearms within the Presidential villa.

The party described as distressing, the report that a members of Mr Presidents family were at scene of the assault against one of President Buhari's aides, during which the First Lady’s security details were alleged to have resorted to the use of firearms.

Our party is disturbed by such ugly situation in the Buhari's Presidency, which has already heightened apprehensions in the public space over the apparent failure of security architecture and central command system in the Presidency leading to such reckless and irresponsible breaches.

The chaotic situation in the Presidential villa only points to the failure by President Muhammadu Buhari to provide a leadership that can guarantee orderliness in governance and effectively ensure the security of our nation.

The Party notes that such leadership failure at the highest level has further exposed why our nation has been bedeviled by myriads of security and economic problems under President Buhari’s watch in the last five years.

More worrisome is that the Muhammadu Buhari Presidency had failed to speak out on the frightening situation so as to reassure Nigerians and douse the tension in the polity; especially at this critical time when our nation is facing serious security challenges.

The Peoples Democratic Party therefore calls on President Muhammadu Buhari to take immediate steps to restore order in his Presidency and shield our security system from the division and power tussle among persons close to him.

Our party also demands for an immediate inquest into the security breaches as well as the alleged violation of COVID-19 ban on inter-state travels by officials and relations of Mr. President, which was reported to be part of the immediate causes of the latest disturbances in the Presidential villa.

Furthermore, the Party leadership urges the Nigerian National Assembly to save the nation by wading into the persistent infighting in the Buhari's Presidency especially as those in charge of the Presidential villa has not demonstrated the required capacity to engender the needed orderliness for productive governance.

In another development, the People's Democratic Party has demonstrated it's concern on the speech made by the President on June 12th and termed it as a slap on democracy. The Party noted that key issues which have been bedeviling the Country were not mentioned yesterday during his national broadcast.

According to them, key issues like rate of poverty, insecurities in the Country especially in the North, imp-unities by the members of his party and cabals and so on. While noting that the President is shying away from his responsibilities and also using the Covid 19 as excuse for under-performance and weak governance.
