Worsening Insecurity: “We are in a war situation in Nigeria” — PDP Chairman

The National Chairman of the Peoples Democrat­ic Party, (PDP), Senator Iyorchia Ayu, has equated what is happening in the country to a war situation.

Speaking at the weekend, the PDP National Chairman said, “The level of insecurity in the country under the watch of a retired General is threatening the uni­ty and existence of this country”, adding that no one now sleeps with two eyes closed.

According to him, “We are fighting bandits. We are fighting kidnappers, we are fighting all sorts of bandits and extremists who are killing, raping our mothers and daugh­ters. We have a retired Gener­al as president and we thought these things will improve. We don’t need to talk as a political party, or as an opposition; but you know that exactly what is hap­pening in our country is threat­ening even the very unity and existence of our country”.

The former Sen­ate President, who was at the meeting with newsmen in the company of members of the party’s Nation­al Working Committee, (NWC), challenged newsmen not to be deterred by the risks around the journalism profession.

Ayu explained how the founding fathers in the profession risked their lives while fighting the military junta to ensure that democracy was returned to the country. He called for more interaction with the me­dia, saying that the party under his watch is determined to im­prove on the security situation in the country.
