The faction of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, led by Alhaji Abubakar Kawu Baraje on Tuesday, lampooned the Nigeria Police Force under the leadership of Mr. M.D Abubakar for dabbling in political crises rather than focusing its attention on improving the country’s security situation.

The party made this known in a statement signed by its spokesman, Chukwuemeka Eze, congratulating Archbishop Ignatius Kattey, Dean of the Anglican Communion in Nigeria, and Mike Ozekhome, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN, on their freedom from kidnappers’ dens.

The New PDP also described the death of former governor of Ondo State, Dr. Olusegun Agagu as “a national calamity”.

“The party thanks Almighty God that these two illustrious Nigerians came out of the kidnappers’ den unhurt and prays that God give them the strength to cope with the psychological trauma arising from their harrowing experience,” the party said.

“PDP wishes to appeal to the Nigerian Police, which has unfortunately allowed itself to become distracted by politics to the detriment of its constitutional duties, to immediately retrace its steps and redirect its energies towards improving the precarious security situation in the country instead of being preoccupied with witch-hunting perceived opponents of President Goodluck Jonathan and Alhaji Bamanga Tukur’s faction of the PDP.

“The Police under the watch of Mohammed D. Abubakar, which has illegally sealed our offices while leaving millions of Nigerians at the mercy of kidnappers and other common criminals, is playing with fire. The earlier it stops doing so, the better for everyone.”

The “New PDP” lamented that the people of Ondo State in particular and Nigerians in general, had been robbed by the death of Mr Agagu, who it described as a patriot and a statesman.

It recalled that apart from serving as governor, Mr Agagu discharged his duties meritoriously as aviation minister from 1999-2001.

“PDP extended its condolences to Dr. Agagu’s immediate family, to the good people of Ondo State, to the PDP family and to Nigerians in general,” the party said.
