…Says “You are overwhelmed by lawlessness in Minna”

Following the unending unrest by irate youths in Minna the state capital the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) in Niger state has mocked the Governor Abubakar sani Bello’s All Progressives Congress (APC) led government saying “you are overwhelmed and have ran short of ideas”.
It should be noted that residents of Minna metropolis, the capital city of Niger State have experienced terror, violence and bloodshed by youths with no signs of abetting since last weekend.
The PDP in Niger said, it considers it a clear failure, ineptitude and grandiose incompetence to have been unable to bring the situation under control for 3 consecutive days running.
In a statement signed by its Publicity Secretary, Suleiman Ahmed Aliyu and made available to Journalists on Tuesday in Minna, the PDP warned that “if nothing urgent is done, Niger state cannot survive this hemorrhage caused by carelessness and incompetence in all spheres”.
Aliyu said “only few months back, same orgy of violence took over Minna, the state capital but nothing was done, no one is arrested or prosecuted while properties worth millions are destroyed, innocent citizens injured and the Incompetent APC Government of Governor Abubakar Sani Bello look away like nothing happened.
“We, the PDP will not seat idly as the state veers off course, because of the uninspiring and unimaginative inertia of Governor Sani Bello’s APC Government.
“Clearly, the PDP can draw a nexus between the failed APC Government of Niger state, youth joblessness and violence, especially with the truancy of Governor Bello approach to Governance.
“We believe if nothing urgent is done, Niger state cannot survive this hemorrhage caused by carelessness and incompetence in all spheres.”
Meanwhile, the Police Public Relations Officer DSP Wasiu Abiodun assured that the Police has waded into the situation adding that any one caught disturbing the peace of the people will be arrested and prosecuted.
