Former Vice President and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 election Atiku Abubakar has told President Muhammadu Buhari to take responsibility of the heightened insecurity in the country.
Naija News understands that the former vice president asked the administration of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to also take responsibility of the heightened insecurity in the country.
Atiku made this known while reacting to a report that was alleged to have been released by a United States based Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), called Centre for Diplomacy and Democracy.
The report alleged that the opposition in Nigeria was responsible for the killings, kidnapping, bloodletting and banditry across the country.
While reacting to the report by the NGO, Atiku described the report as a contrived write-up by a fictitious NGO.
Atiku who expressed his reactions towards the NGO’s report via a statement by his media adviser, Paul Ibe, on Tuesday, May 7 said; The contrived report by a fictitious non-governmental organization in the United States is the deepest low that Muhammadu Buhari administration has gone in causing further division and promoting instability in Nigeria.
“Anyone versed enough in the protocol of international NGOs will discern without much ado that the particular report by a faceless, insipid organization known as ‘Centre for Diplomacy and Democracy’ was contrived with express mobilization from officials of the Buhari administration in a shameless and disingenuous attempt to find a jejune explanation for the rising rate of insecurity in Nigeria.
“Our investigation has revealed that there is no such report as being touted and no such body called ‘Centre for Diplomacy and Democracy’. Americans will never write ‘Centre’. They will write ‘Center’ in conformity to the American English usage”.
