From Jibrin Miachi, Kaduna

The Kaduna State Chapter of the Peoples Democrat­ic Party (PDP), has con­demned the recent bloodbaths in Kajuru, Birnin Gwari and Sanga local government areas of Kadu­na state and blamed the spate of violence on government at both the state and federal levels as it showed less concern.

The party in a reaction to the ugly development via a press release issued by its publicity sec­retary, Abraham Alberah Catoh, lamented that the death tolls oc­casioned by the crisis would have been avoided if government at both the federal and state level have lived up to expectations.

The statement also con­demned the disappearance of the State Governor, Nasir El-rufai and his deputy, Arch. Barnabas Bala Bantex, without any public no­tice, in the middle of this crisis. The State is operating in an auto pilot mode even as it described it as the height of irresponsibility

“The killings arising from the avoidable crisis would have been averted if the Federal and State Governments have been up and doing and had fully engaged the Security agencies with the need­ed proactive measures and equip­ments to fight insecurity.

The PDP observed that the lack of jobs, illiteracy and pov­erty of our citizens is the greatest danger facing our society today.

“There is no Human Capi­tal Development, and illiteracy amongst our citizens and this has eaten deep into our citizens, just as lack of education has made our peoples vulnerable”.

The party also condemned the “disappearance of the State Governor, Nasir Elrufai and his Deputy, Arch. Barnabas Bala Ban­tex, without any public notice, in the middle of this crisis” stress­ing with this development,.”The State is operating in an Auto Pi­lot mode. This is the height of ir­responsility”.

The statement further con­demned the APC led government for lack of delebrate policies that would engage our Women and youths in meaningful ventures to make them productive and use­ful to our corporate existence,and also galvanize our economy as a Nation.

“We have also observed that the government has intentional­ly pauperised our citizens through their harsh policies, without any cushion effects(palliatives) to ameliorate their sufferings”.

“The effect of these harsh programmes, without any hope insight, has disillusioned our youths and made them vulnera­ble to crimes just to survive the hardship; an idle mind is the dev­il’s workshop”.

“Apart from the APC’s usual propaganda, there is nothing they have achieved in the last 3 years plus of her administration”.

“In terms of Security of lives and property, Nigerians are worse than they use to be before 2015. Kidnappings and banditry has be­come the order of the day, aside terrorists activities. Corruption has grown to a more advanced level under the APC’s watch”.

“The so called N~Power has turned our youths into casual staff that would be disengaged af­ter 2 years, instead of giving them permanent and pensionable em­ployment, as against Internation­al Labour Organization charter, of which Nigeria is a signatory”.

‘Millions of jobs have been lost due to the bad economic pol­icies of the APC led government.

“All these and more, has made Nigerians hopeless, especial­ly with the high wired electoral fraud perpetrated by the APC in the recently yet to be concluded 2019 general elections, with the support of the Independent Elec­toral Commission, INEC, and the Nigeria Army, who the APC gov­ernment have converted into po­litical thugs.

“Where the PDP is leading, results are declared inconclusive or the NA is sent to intimidate, harass and forcefully take away ballot boxes and other sensitive voting materials”.

“The PDP commiserates with the families of those who lost their lives in the wanton killings and pray for the repose of their souls and also wish the injured quick recovery.

“Finally, we wish to thank our teeming supporters for their im­mense support before,during and after the 2019 general elections.
“We urge you all to remain calm and law abiding as the Par­ty will do every thing within the ambit of the law at the Elections Tribunal to retrieve back the man­date given to us, by God’s grace”
