Uche Secondus, National Leader of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) has claimed President Muhammadu Buhari lacks the competence required to lead Nigeria over rising state of insecurity in the nation.
Speaking at the 90th edition of PDP’s National Executive Council (NEC), Secondus alleged insecurity and economic crisis which were already plaguing the nation before the outbreak of COVID-19 worsened over poor leadership skills exhibited by Buhari-led administration.
“Great leaders of our party, before the COVID-19 lockdown our country was already going through some socio-political and economic challenges all arising from the poor governance delivery by the ruling APC,”
“The security problem of the country has refused to abate, instead, it has multiplied with no clear solution in sight.
“President Muhammadu Buhari led APC government, under whose watch the situation got worsened and complicated has remained clearly helpless and incapable of providing the needed leadership.”
“The consequences of all these came to the fore when the youths, last month, poured out their anger on the country through a nationwide protest,” he said.
“Even though the protest was triggered off by accumulated police brutality, particularly by the defunct Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), it developed into a wider rebellion against injustice and poor leadership in the country.”
Addressing the defection of David Umahi, Ebonyi state Governor to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Secondus said the real reason Umahi dumped PDP would come to limelight.
“You must have read the eventual defection of PDP Governor in Ebonyi state, His Excellency Dave Umahi to the ruling APC on Tuesday and his provocative reason of allegations of injustice against the south-east by the party,”
