PDP Urges Buhari To Declare State Of Emergency On Security

THE National Executive Committee (NEC) of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) rose from its emergency meeting in Abuja, Thursday, urging President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately declare a national state of emergency on security.

The party lamented the heightened insecurity pervading all parts of the country “due primarily to the misrule of President Muhammed Buhari and All Progressives Congress (APC) as well as their failure to decisively tackle the menace of terrorism, banditry, kidnapping, bloodletting and acts of violence in our country”

It also urged Buhari to, without delay, convoke a national conference on security so as to galvanise ideas and options to tackle insecurity in our country.

It further commended the efforts of governors, senators, House of Representatives members and other officials elected on the platform of the PDP in forcefully seeking solutions to the spate of insecurity in the country.

The PDP NEC expressed satisfaction with the efforts of the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) in preparation for the November 6, 2021 governorship election in Anambra State and asserted its readiness to do everything possible, within the confines of the law, to win the election.

On the e-registration of members, the PDP NEC announced the membership of the committee set up to conduct the exercise.

Edo State Governor, Chief Godwin Obaseki, was appointed as Chairman, while his Adamawa State counterpart, Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri, was appointed to serve as Deputy Chairman of the e- registration committee.

“The statutory members of the committee are the National Organising Secretary, National Treasurer, National Financial Secretary, Deputy National Secretary and the National Publicity Secretary,” the party said

PDP NEC unanimously passed a vote of confidence on the National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus as well as the members of the NWC and cautioned party members at all levels to be wary of agents of distractions and division
