Aso Rock Gunfire : Speak Out, Restore Order, PDP Tells Buhari 

Muhammadu Buhari


Disquited by the shooting and security breach within the precincts of the Presidential Villa, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) says it smacks of President Muhammadu Buhari’s failure to provide a leadership that can guarantee orderliness in governance and the nation’s security.

The shootings followed squabbles among family members and officials of the Buhari Presidency.

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

“The PDP is 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.

“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 a leadership that can guarantee orderliness in governance and effectively ensure the security of our nation.


“The PDP notes that such leadership failure at the highest level has further exposed why our nation has been bedeviled by myriads of security and economic problems under President 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,” the opposition party said in a statement by

Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, the National Publicity Secretary obtained by PerSecondnews.
The PDP, therefore, called on President Buhari to take immediate steps to restore order in his Presidency and shield our security system from the division and power tussle among persons close to him.


It said: “Our party also demands for 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 latest disturbances in the Presidential villa.”


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