#EndSARS: President Buhari’s Address Was Disappointing And Depressing- PDP

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described the Thursday, October 22 address by President Buhari on the protests rocking the nation, as “disappointing, depressing, and completely disconnected from the realities of the tragic occurrences in our country in the last two weeks.”

In a statement released by the spokesperson, Kola Ologbodiyan, the party said the President’s address, in the face of the turmoil witnessed, the unrests as well as the killing of young Nigerians, ”is, to say the least, depressing and failing in empathy test.’

The statement in part reads

Our party and, indeed, all lovers of peace in our country, were shocked that Mr. President glossed over the immediate trigger of violent protests – the widely condemned killing at the Lekki Toll Gate by security operatives, a situation which created a global concern and drew the attention of the world to the abuse of human rights going on in our country under his watch.

Painfully too, Mr. President, as the Commander-in-Chief, was silent on the demand by Nigerians for enquires into the involvement of the military in the gruesome killing.

Sadly, the long awaited address failed to inspire any hope. It failed to address the trepidations, the pervading hopelessness, the drifting towards anarchy and provided no concrete steps on how to arrest the situation and rein in bandits, hoodlums and vandals that were let loose to unleash violence on peaceful protesters and innocent Nigerians.

In short, from the letters of the address, there were no correlations between the fundamentals of the crisis situation that we have witnessed and the long-sought reaction of Mr President.

Furthermore, Nigerians had expected that Mr. President will provide the lead for the much- needed overhauling of our security architecture to meet the demands of professionalism and respect for rules of engagement.

Mr. President also failed to use the opportunity to further heal wounds and inspire hope by outlining a roadmap to open up the economy in a manner that will enable our teeming hard working youths to pursue their productive goals as well as address the issue of pervading hunger in the land.”
