The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) charhed President Muhammadu Buhari to personally address the nation, without any further delay on the command crisis rocking the Presidency.
The PDP said this was necessary as strange elements have been exposed as having taken over critical issues of governance, including security matters.
The cold war between National Security Adviser (NSA), Maj. Gen. Babagana Monguno, and the President’s Chief of Staff, Mallam Abba Kyari, was blown open on Monday with the farmer’s memo accusing the latter of derailing war on Boone haram by his excessive manipulation and usurpation.
To this the PDP said the president must speak since Kyari now functions as a defacto President.
Disclosing this in a statement, Kola Ologbondiyan, National Publicity Secretary, invites Nigerians to note that any President, who is on top of issues of governance, and who has not relinquished his duties, would have immediately addressed the nation on such an issue of urgent national importance.
The PDP laments that President Buhari’s taciturn posturing in the face of a command crisis is worsening our already perilous security situation and further validates global apprehensions that Mr. President has become overwhelmed by the demands of his office and completely abdicated his duties to a cabal.
It is indeed distressing to the nation that the situation threatens our national stability and could heightens anxieties in the security hierarchy regarding whose orders to obey.
The PDP insists that Mr. President holds it as a duty to Nigerians to personally speak to the situation immediately as our nation is undergoing an insecurity situation that is unknown to our national history.
The PDP, as a party, that has the interest of our nation at heart, has the responsibility to invite Mr. President to address Nigerians on this matter.
Our party therefore counsels the Buhari Presidency not to attempt to use the decoy of silence to sweep such issue of grave national concern under the carpet, as such could compound the security situation in the country.
