The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has charged President Muhammadu Buhari to end his embarrassing lethargic approach to governance and the welfare of Nigerians, and immediately proceed to Lagos to reassure Nigerians over the horrendous Abule-Ado explosion that killed many Nigerians, injured and rendered many more homeless.

In a press statement, signed by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party said that it is indeed strange, with such a national calamity and attendant loss of lives and property, that a leader could remain distant and not deem it fit to personally identify with the victims through a visit, but prefer to wait in the comfort of Aso Presidential Villa to be presented with photographs of the ugly incident.

Saying that it is unfortunate that the Buhari Presidency always wait to be reminded or prodded before identifying with Nigerians and taking up responsibility whenever our nation is confronted with critical issues that directly affect the wellbeing and security of Nigerians, the party added, “Nigerians had expected Mr. President to always lead from the front on serious national issues, as he promised, but this had not been the case, resulting in leadership failure and myriads of security, economic, environmental and political problems that had bedeviled our nation in the last five years.

Urging the President’s handlers to immediately schedule a visit to Abule-Ado, Lagos, for an on-the-spot assessmaent of the horrific incident and take corresponding action to avert a future recurrence, the PDP also called for a forensic investigation into the spate of explosions, particularly the Abule-Ado disaster, given the conflicting reports on the cause of the incident.
