    Nigeria in chaos, says PDP caucus

    The National Caucus of the Peoples Democratic Party has again bemoaned the state of security in Nigeria.

    It demanded that the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), urgently take steps to reign in terrorists and bandits that are holding the nation to ransom.

    This was contained in a communique read after a meeting of the caucus, which was held at the Akwa Ibom Governors’ Lodge in Abuja on Friday.

    National Chairman of the party, Uche Secondus, read the communique on Saturday.

    While reading the communique, Secondus said, “The meeting noted that Nigeria is fast descending into anarchy, with security of lives and property practically non-existent.

    “This state of anarchy is so widespread that every state in the country is affected. Effective policing and security is no longer guaranteed even for ordinary citizens and for day to day affairs in Nigeria.

    “Terrorism, banditry, kidnapping, cattle rustling, rape, arson, mindless murder of citizens and even security agents is ravaging the land. Criminals have taken complete control of most aspects of our lives, unchecked.

    “Government seem powerless to act. Nigeria has become one giant killing field. The state is helpless and unable to solve the problem.

    “The presence of government is no longer felt. Everyone is on his own. It is as if Nigeria has no government again.

    Party leaders also noted the unrestricted expansion of Boko Haram into newer and inner territories close to the seat of government in Abuja and expressed alarm at the capitulation of the security agencies and President Muhamadu Buhari’s APC government.

    Secondus said it was the opinion of the PDP that President Buhari has failed the people at a time of grave national crises.

    The meeting had in attendance elected National Officers of the party, Governors, PDP leaders in the National Assembly and other stakeholders, focused entirely on the worsening security situation in the country.
