The Peoples Democratic Party has said the booing of President Muhammadu Buhari showed a loss of confidence in his administration and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

The party further stated that the action was a clear message that Nigerians hold him responsible for the rising insecurity in the country.

Recall that President Buhari who was in Maiduguri on Wednesday for sympathy visit following the Boko Haram terrorists’ attack at Auno was booed by some angry residents of the state.

In a statement by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP advised Buhari to go beyond his sympathy visit to Borno state and take concrete steps to end the killings in that state and other parts of the country.

The party equally called on him not to limit his visit to Borno state, but to also visit other parts of the country, including Kaduna, Kano, Benue, Plateau, Yobe, Adamawa, Zamfara, Kogi, Niger, Taraba and other states to gauge the feelings of Nigerians and also see the national disaster his poor handling of security and infrastructure has caused the nation.


The PDP further charged the President to endeavour to go on subsequent visits by road in order to see and feel the agony Nigerians are being subjected to, as a result of the deteriorated state of road infrastructure and security network under his administration.

“Our party holds that Nigerians do not deserve a distant President, who sits in the comfort of the Presidential villa and luxury jets, remaining indifferent to the pains, anguish and torments that compatriots suffer on a daily basis.

“The PDP hereby calls on Mr. President to quickly embark on these visits and monitor, on first hand basis, the damage which his administration has caused and for which Nigerians are demanding that he resigns and allow more competent hands to manage the affairs of our nation.

“It is only after these visits that the Buhari Presidency will appreciate that those calling on him to rejig the nation’s security architecture mean well for our dear country,” the statement added.
