THE opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has alleged that the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) are the ones empowering herdsmen to kill Nigerians across the country.
This was as the PDP said some governors elected on the platform of the APC in the North Central will soon join it fold.
The six states in the North Central which includes; Niger, Kogi, Kwara, Benue, Nasarawa and Plateau are all governed by the APC.
The National Chairman of the PDP, Uche Secondus stated this on Tuesday (13/02/2018) in Umuahia, Abia State during his one-day working visit to the State Executive Council (SEC) of the party.
Secondus said the APC-led government should be held responsible for the alleged killings by herdsmen in Benue and other parts of the country.
He said the APC must accept blame for alleged mismanagement, misinformation and abandoning their responsibility of protecting lives and property of Nigerians.
“No fuel, no food; the herdsmen have been empowered by APC government to kill. We are on a rescue mission.
“Currently, there are crises in their party (APC). When you see a broken party, you see a broken government; APC is playing politics with hunger, they play politics with killings of innocent people.
“This APC government can’t hear the cry of the people; this government can no longer protect the ordinary man. They want to bring down the National Assembly. There are crises in the country because APC itself is crises personified.
“We are on a mission of recovering Nigeria from the hands of APC; even the market women know that the APC government has collapsed,” he said.
He warned INEC against any attempt to rig next year’s general elections, saying any attempt to rig the elections would be resisted by PDP.
Also speaking, Governor Okezie Ikpeazu said the party was safe in Abia ahead of 2019, saying love and unity would take the party back to Aso Rock.
