PDP Demands Probe Into Security Breaches At Presidential Villa

ABUJA – The Peoples Demo­cratic Party (PDP) has raised the alarm over the re­ported shooting and secu­rity breaches within the precincts of the Presiden­tial Villa and demanded an immediate inquest into the alleged security breaches.

The shooting, according to PDP, followed a reported de­generated squabble among family members and officials of the Presidency.

The party, according to a statement by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, said it was “deeply worried that the protracted spat between the First Lady, Aisha Buhari, and aides of President Muham­madu Buhari has now degen­erated into violent combats, raids and free use of firearms within the Presidential Villa.”





The PDP described as distressing, the report that members of Mr. President’s family were at the scene of the assault against one of Bu­hari’s aides, during which the First Lady’s security details allegedly resorted to the use of firearms.

“Our party is disturbed by such ugly situation in the Buhari Presidency, which has already heightened apprehen­sions in the public space over the apparent failure of secu­rity architecture and central command system in the presi­dency, leading to such reckless and irresponsible breaches.

“The chaotic situation in the Presidential Villa only points to the failure by Pres­ident Buhari to provide lead­ership that can guarantee or­derliness in governance and effectively ensure the security of our nation,” the party said.

The PDP noted that such leadership failure at the high­est level had further exposed why the nation had been be­deviled by myriads of secu­rity and economic problems under Buhari’s watch in the last five years.

“More worrisome is that the Buhari Presidency had failed to speak out on the frightening situation so as to reassure Nigerians and douse the tension in the polity, especially at this critical time when our nation is facing se­rious security challenges,” it said.

The PDP called on Buhari to take immediate steps to re­store order in his Presidency and shield the security system from the division and power tussle among persons close to him.

“Our party also demands an immediate inquest into the security breaches as well as the alleged violation of COVID-19 ban on inter-state travels by officials and rela­tions of Mr. President, which was reported to be part of the immediate causes of the latest disturbances in the Presiden­tial Villa,” the party said.

The PDP urged the Nation­al Assembly to save the nation by wading into the persistent infighting in the Buhari Pres­idency, especially as those in charge of the Presidential Vil­la had not demonstrated the required capacity to engender the needed orderliness for pro­ductive governance.
