PDP Calls for Tinubu’s Intervention Amid Escalating Insecurity

At the close of its 98th National Executive Committee meeting, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has released a communique signed by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Hon. Debo Ologunagba, aimed at addressing the state of the nation, expressing grave concerns over the worsening insecurity, economic challenges, and alleged creeping totalitarianism under the All Progressives Congress (APC) administration.

The PDP’s National Executive Committee commended the resilience of party organs and members, particularly the youth and women, for resisting what it termed “the divisive and anti-people” actions of the APC. Expressing serious apprehensions over acts of terrorism, violence, and mass abductions, the PDP condemned what it perceived as the APC’s “insensitivity, nonchalance, incompetence, and arrogance” in addressing these issues.

The communique called for urgent action from President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, demanding the convening of a special National Security Council meeting to address the escalating insecurity. Additionally, it urged a restructuring of the economic team and a review of stifling policies affecting citizens’ lives.

NEC approved a timetable for party congresses nationwide, reconstitution of disciplinary and reconciliation committees, and an extension of the Party Constitution Amendment Committee’s tenure. Commending the National Working Committee for its rebranding efforts, the PDP charged all members to unite for the party’s success and the benefit of Nigerians.

Conclusion: With the PDP’s issuance of this communique, it underscores its commitment to addressing national issues while positioning itself as an alternative to the ruling APC, setting the stage for continued political discourse and action in Nigeria.
