PDP Reacts To Ondo Church Attack, Accuses APC Govt Of Complicity




Crisis In Imo PDP As Party Members Suspend Chairman

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the Muhammdu Buhari-led government of complicity in the attack on St. Francis Catholic Church, Owo, Ondo State.

Naija News earlier reported that unknown gunmen on Sunday attacked the catholic church and killed many worshippers just as the service was nearing its conclusion.

It was gathered that the gunmen detonated explosives before firing at the worshippers including women and children.

In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba, the PDP condemned the killings of innocent worshippers during a church service at the church.

The party said it was surprising that the terrorists invaded the church, opened fire on worshippers, freely murdered Nigerians in cold blood, and left unchallenged.

According to the PDP, the gunmen are emboldened by the alleged complicity of the All Progressives Congress (APC) federal government and its refusal to curtail the activities of the terrorists.

The PDP said the APC administration is deliberately surrendering the sovereignty of a part of the country to terrorists, who are now expanding their reign of terror and territorial occupation in our country.

It expressed fear that this attack may be another plot by the APC to allegedly unleash terror on Nigerians to trigger tension and derail the 2023 general elections.

The statement partly read, “It is disheartening and traumatic to witness gory pictures and videos of children and the elderly murdered in cold blood this morning by terrorists with President Buhari and his apologists playing dumb to these happening by deodorizing terrorists as bandits.

“President Buhari and his government have irretrievably failed in the primary purpose of government which is to provide security and welfare for its citizens. This President has completely abdicated his duties, become numb to daily reports of killings, adductions, and kidnappings by terrorists, and remain absent when our nation needed him most.

“It is now crystal clear that President Buhari is incapable, incompetent and does not possess the capacity and integrity to hold office as Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. He is a failed leader and history will not be kind to him and his administration for his abysmal failure in office”.

“The PDP charged President Buhari to live up to his oath of office by immediately addressing the nation on measures to stop this human carnage in the country and give the nation some sense of leadership that has been absent in the last seven years.”
