The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said the attack at the Kaduna International Airport was a clear confirmation that the nation’s security, command and control structure under the President Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress (APC) administration has collapsed.

In a statement, the PDP said the attack at a time outlaws, kidnappers and marauders operate on highways and railways had further heightened security concerns that nowhere was safe in the country.

In the statement, signed by the national publicity secretary of the party, Debo Ologunagba, it further said the refusal and failure of President Buhari and the APC to take action on the airport attack but “continued to jamboree in Abuja in the name of a national convention reveals that the Buhari administration has conceded sovereignty over parts of our country to terrorists.

“President Buhari’s nonchalant disposition to this grave security challenge indicates that his administration is unable, unwilling and or complicit in this particular attack, as well as various other acts of terrorism in our country.

“It is indefensibly suspicious that while an international airport in our country was under attack by over 200 terrorists, with many Nigerians being held hostage and traumatised, President Buhari and the APC continued in their carnival in Abuja without acknowledging or expressing concern. Is this not a case of Buhari fiddles while Nigeria burns?

“The APC government has failed, become numb to violence against our citizens and can no longer perform its primary duty under Section 14 (2) (b) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended) which provides that “security and welfare of the people shall be the primary purpose of government.

“Under President Buhari, terrorists have established sovereignty in substantial parts of the country, especially in the North West and North East, where they execute laws and impose penalties, collect taxes, control commercial and transportation activities and now scaringly take control of an international airport with grave negative consequences to our national image in the world.”
