People’s Democratic Party, PDP, in Kaduna State have condemned in strong term the spate of attacks and incessant killings across the State. The party made it’s grievances known in a press statement it issued, saying, the killings has become a reoccurring decimal.
Adding that: Where people are maimed, killed and their houses and food burnt down, even with the total lockdown across the State, where the government has failed to secure and protect its citizens.
The party called on the attackers to embrace peace and work towards peaceful coexistence, especially now that the Coronavirus Disease has ravaged our existence, as humans, the world over.
Terrorists,kidnappers and bandits have taken over our dear State, and this is affecting economic and agricultural growth. Farmers cannot go to their farms and come back home safe, market men and women, businesses are closing down due to the activities of these rampaging criminals.
There cannot be any reasonable economic growth where there is no stable security
We urge the security agencies to brace up to their responsibility of protecting lives and property of the citizens and also defending the territorial frontiers of our Nation.
Our Party therefore, demands that the State Government should wake up to their primary constitutional requirement of coordinating the the security agencies in the protection of lives and property.
Killings have been going on unabated in
Chikun,Igabi,Kauru,Kaura,Giwa,Birnin Gwari,Kudan,Soba,Kajuru,Sanga and Lere, even with the total lockdown due to Coronavirus pandemic.
The major hotspots of the killings are Kajuru,Birnin Gwari,Giwa, Sanga,Kaura and Kachia Local Governments.
We also want to use this opportunity to call on the State Governor,Nasir Elrufai and the APC government to live up to promise to never give up on the citizens as an agenda.
Our major concern as a party is the security of lives property and welfare of our citizens
