The Nasarawa State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has scored the All Progressives Congress APC low in tackling security challenges, saying that the state is recording more Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs on a daily basis.
DAILY NIGERIAN reports that the APC gubernatorial candidate in the state, A.A Sule, had during a recent BBC Hausa Radio Service debate said the state scored a pass mark in securing the lives and
property of its citizens.
However, Taimako Anyuabaga, the PDP’s head of media and publicity in the state, through a statement, in reaction to the APC gubernatorial candidate’s claim, said the administration had rather increased hardship and insecurity than improving the lot of the people.
According to Mr Anyuabaga, the APC lacks the political will to secure the people’s lives and property.
“The outing of the All Progressives Congress APC candidate, Alhaji A. A. Sule, in the just concluded gubernatorial debate organised by the BBC Hausa in Nasarawa State is very disturbing”.
“It is quite worrying that even with thousands of Nasarawa State indigenous people and citizens displaced from their homes because of the constant farmers and herdsmen clashes, the APC would score herself a pass mark in security in the state,” he added.
Mr Anyuabaga, therefore, said that the PDP in the state will improve the security situation in the state and create a forum for reconciliation and peaceful coexistence
“Unlike the APC, the People’s Democratic Party through our candidate, promised to look into the case of insecurity by digitalizing the security architecture of the state, encouraging peaceful coexistence between individuals and communities so as to achieve lasting peace in the state as the people enjoyed during the PDP administration”.
