Mysteries Unravel As PDP Leaders Accuse the Ruling Party of Banditry Romance and Negligence of Duty


Following the most recent rail attacks in Kaduna State by bandits that dolorously claimed the lives and properties of at least eight (8) people, representatives of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) have on Thursday swiftly accused the current leaders of the ruling party (APC) of being “in league with terrorists”.


These livid and bold accusations of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) were engineered by the public reactive outbursts of the Governor of Kaduna State, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, and the current Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi when they were both individually quizzed about the rail attacks.


El Rufai had been quoted as saying “we know where their camps are, we know where they are, the SSS has their phone numbers, they listen to them and they give me reports…”


Needless to say, these statements of the Governor of Kaduna state show how unprejudiced the Government is towards these terrorists. More so, it is obvious that there are active communications between governments operatives and these terrorists and yet no proactive actions have been taken to obliterate them from their camp.


Amaechi, in a similar way, had said “We knew what the problems will be. We knew we needed to have digital security equipment’s… I warned that lives will be lost and now lives are lost…when you come with sincerity to the government and your colleagues are stopping you, it is annoying.”


The minister of Transportation’s statement is a direct implication that the government, upon knowing that there could be an attack on transportation facilities, shunned precautionary measures suggested by the minister who supposedly is to act in the capacity to ensure proper flow and safety in Nigerian’s transportation sector.


Hence lives were indeed lost and blame has alluded to the minister’s colleagues who opposed his proposal for digital security equipment’s on reasons that could be validly traced to corruption.


It’s also worth quoting the words of Debo Ologunagba, the National Publicity Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) during a media debriefing that “it is therefore not surprising that President Muhammadu Buhari insists on retaining a self-confessed terrorist apologist, Dr. Isa Pantami to continue to head the ministry of Communications and digital Economy which is indispensable in any meaningful fight against terrorism in Nigeria.”


The statement reads in part “The fact that the Buhari-led government atrociously refused to act despite having full intelligence on the whereabouts, as well as the plans of the terrorists, confirms grave complicity and conspiracy against our nation at the very top level of the APC government’s security command and control coordination structure.”


The newly appointed Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and a former Governor of Nasarawa State, Senator Abdullahi Adamu has since reacted to El -Rufai and Amaechi that he does not know how they were thinking about the security situation in Nigeria but it was wrong for one to take a knife and rip open his stomach.


However, more focus seems to be targeted at the Government’s swift reactions to comments that suggests a mysterious bromance between the current Administration and the monotonous group of terrorists that obviously appear to be very coordinated and sponsored.


One of these suspicious actions is the suspension of the Chief Imam of Apo Legislative Quarters Mosque, Shiekh Nuru Khalid, on the 2nd of April, on grounds of preaching an anti-government sermon on Friday, April 1.


While Khalid was delivering his sermon, he said, “Nigerian masses should resort to only one term which is the protection of lives, we will come out to vote; let us be killed, we will not come out to vote, since its only elections that you people know. “we need prayers. We need supplications. This is very important at a time when Nigeria is facing a very serious challenge. Everything is not working well. People are dying. Our roads are not secured…”


Khalid went further to say something quite disturbing, that there is either better coordination amongst the terrorists than the government or there is a bromance.


He said, “They (terrorists/bandits) can gather and disseminate intelligent information as if they are a government of their own while our government cannot share information and stop the rubbish on our ways.” This statement did not go down well with the Mosque committee, as it accused Khalid of “inciting a public outrage.”


In a statement sent to BBC Hausa Service, the chairman of the Mosque Committee, Senator Saidu Muhammed Dansadau, said the Imam was suspended over his Sermon. The statement reads in part, “I am informing you that you have been suspended from leading prayers in the Apo Legislative Quarters Mosque from today being April 2nd, 2022 until further notice.


“The decision was taken out of the inciting Friday sermon you delivered on April 1st, 2022; where you advised people not to vote come 2023 general elections unless politicians respond to some critical question. You should have advised them to vote out those that transgress the Almighty and breach people’s social contract as well as the state.”


Now, since the government knows the hideouts of these bandits and terrorists, as well as their plans as alleged by the top APC leading duo – El-Rufai and Amaechi, why are they still tolerant and yet to undertake any serious action?
