The Buhari Campaign Organisation, BCO, on Wednesday, alleged that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, was behind the reported “booing” of President Muhammadu Buhari by Maiduguri youth during his Wednesday’s sympathy visit, following Auno attack that killed about 30 people in the state.
The National Coordinator of the group, Danladi Pasali, who made the allegation in a statement on Wednesday in Jos, Plateau State, also warned the PDP, of politicisation of the country’s security challenges.
Mr Pasali stressed that the spate of the killing of innocent persons and destruction of properties by Boko Haram insurgents in Borno State is not only condemnable but an act of inhumanity to mankind.
“However, in as much as we condemn the act, we must also strike the balance by urging desperate politicians to halt their politicisation of security issues to the detriment of the citizens,” he said.
Mr Pasali said: “Just to remind the PDP and its few sponsored youths stationed along Ramat Polytechnic that what is happening now is their inability to judiciously utilise the commonwealth of Nigerians in fighting the insurgency.”
“To us patriotic Nigerians, we will not drive any pleasure that their President or his convey is booed, rather, the bad ones that do not have the country and the innocent people at the heart would do,” Mr Pasali said.
The BCO national coordinator said the national opposition party should understand that the majority of the people would not toe its path, stressing that politicising security situation is a great dishonour that can happen to Nigerians, “more less than such sponsoring of the unpatriotic act on the seating president”.
