The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), pressed the message in the hostile reception President Muhammadu Buhari received in Maiduguri, Borno State, on Wednesday, saying it meant he had lost the confidence of the people.

Buhari was booed and heckled by the residents, who lined the route his convoy passed, chanting Bama so! Bamayi! which translates to “We don’t want; we’re not interested.”

Joining in the fray, the party, in a statement by its spokesman, Kola Ologbodiyan, said it was time for the President to go beyond his sympathy visits to victims struck by terrorists and end the killings not only in Borno, but other parts of the country.  

Stressing that the booing was a clear message to him that Nigerians hold him responsible for the escalated insecurity in the country, they said it also indicated a loss of confidence in Buhari and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

The party also demanded the President not limit to his visit to Borno state but also visit other parts of the country, including Kaduna, Kano, Benue, Plateau, Yobe, Adamawa, Zamfara, Kogi, Niger, Taraba and other states to face the feelings of Nigerians as well as view the national devastation his poor handling of security and infrastructure has caused  our nation. 

The statement, said: “The party hopes that the visit to Borno state, which came only after the PDP and Nigerians criticized Mr. President for his aloofness, particularly over the Auno killing on Sunday, is not part of the usual presidential media stunts that will not be followed with a corresponding action to track down killers and end terrorism.

“The PDP further charges Mr. President to endeavour to go on subsequent visits by road in order to see and feel the agony Nigerians are being subjected to with the parlous state of our road infrastructure and security network under the incompetent and unresponsive Buhari Presidency and APC.

“Our party holds that Nigerians do not deserve a distant President, who sits in the comfort of the Presidential villa and luxury jets, remaining indifferent to the pains, anguish and torments that compatriots suffer on daily basis. 

“The PDP hereby calls on Mr. President to quickly embark on these visits and monitor, on first hand basis, the damage which his administration has caused and for which Nigerians are demanding that he resigns and allow more competent hands to manage the affairs of our nation.

“It is only after these visits that the Buhari President will appreciate that those calling on him to rejig the nation's security architecture mean well for our dear country.”
