The Peoples Democratic Party, National Council of Tiv Youths and Middle Belt Youth Council have said that President Muhammadu Buhari has not been effectively monitoring security problems in the country.
The groups stated this on Tuesday, when they commented on the President’s remark in Benue State, that he was not aware that the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, did not obey his order.
Buhari had in January ordered the IGP to relocate to Benue State following the killings by herdsmen in the state.
On Monday, stakeholders, at a meeting in Makurdi, told the President that the police boss did not spend 24 hours in the state.
The PDP, in a statement on Tuesday by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, criticized the President for trying to pass the buck to the IGP, stating that the development had exposed Buhari’s lack of direct commitment to the security of Nigerians.
The party said Buhari had indicted himself, adding that such an unpardonable attitude to governance was directly responsible for the Buhari government’s below average performance on the economy.
The main opposition party asked the President to tell Nigerians how he reprimanded Idris in the past, adding that Nigerians are displeased that while the killings had yet to abate, the President announced his plans to return to Benue State to seek for another round of votes.
