The All Progressives Congress (APC) says President Muhammadu Buhari is working with the National Assembly and the Armed Forces to address the security challenges confronting the country.
Mr Yekini Nabena, the Deputy National Publicity Secretary of APC, gave the assurance in a statement on Monday in Abuja.
“The leadership of the National Assembly, the President and Armed Forces, which the president heads as Commander in Chief, are on the same page in tackling emerging security situations in the country.
“The APC has no intention of joining issues with a crass statement, credited to Kingsley Chinda, a purported factional leader of the PDP caucus in the House of Representatives,” he said.
According to him, Chinda has resorted to denigrate the office and person of the President via name calling and insults.
Nabena stressed that Chinda’s intention was to play politics with the grief of citizens, in the aftermath of the recent, “gruesome and condemnable killings of some defenceless farmers in Zabarmari, Borno, by Boko Haram terrorists.
“The APC would not join issues with Chinda and his PDP backers on this evil and ignoble road,” he said.
Nabena also said that the APC had since learnt that Chinda did not even have the support of any of the PDP House caucus factions which he claimed to head, stressing that he was a lone and rejected voice.
“The House of Representatives has already dismissed Chinda’s rant as illogical, self-serving and a ploy to derail the proposed visit of the President to the House,” he said.
He said that the Buhari-led APC administration was poised to ensure the safety of all Nigerians across the country, irrespective of the current challenges.
