The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) salutes the Nigerian people for their exceptional show of solidarity in support of efforts to ensure the rescue of the abducted Chibok schoolgirls. The cry of our people over the past few weeks has inspired a global response that will help to number the days of the terrorists.
In a statement issued, by Olisa Mettuch, Nigerians have not only demonstrated our oneness but also our boldness and determination to surge forward as a people to rescue our land from those who aim to cow us and impose a reign of terror in our nation. It is clear that once we continue to show such unity and solidarity in all our affairs, our nation will emerge stronger and ultimately take its rightful place among the comity of nations.
“We note with joy, the change of attitude on the part of some opposition leaders whose recent statements indicate that they have realized the harm their past posture and utterances caused the nation. It has remained our publicly stated belief that playing the blame game,emboldened insurgents to unleash terror on our people. Though this change of attitude is late, we believe that it is better late than never.”According to the National Publicity secretary, against the background of the above change of attitude, it is troubling that at a time when all people of goodwill and good sense now speak unequivocally against terrorism in our land, some in the APC still persists in seeking political capital out of the pains of the missing school girls or other incidents of terrorism.”This is not only shameful but disgusting, disgraceful and distasteful. It is this gloating that has made many doubt the sincerity of the APC in the fight against terrorism in our country.”The party urges Nigerian’s to stand unified and speak up clearly and boldly to condemn terrorism, the time to apportion blame will come,for now, let the terrorists and their backers get the message loudly.
