BY GRACE ANYANWU, ABUJA – The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Wednesday challenged the Buhari Presidency to immediately respond to comments by the Chairman of Senate Committee on Army, Senator Ali Ndume, that the Buhari administration’s under-funding of the military is responsible for the persistent insecurity challenges in the nation under its watch.

PDP described as worrisome, the comments by Senator Ndume, who on a national television on Tuesday night, restated his position that the Buhari administration was not adequately funding the military.

The party in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, noted that Senator Ndume comments places a huge burden of explanation at the doorstep of the Buhari Presidency, which it stressed has failed on all fronts to secure the nation, leading to the escalation of banditry, insurgency, kidnapping and other acts of violence in various parts of the country.

It also said that it is equally distressing that President Muhammadu Buhari had failed to lead from the front as he promised in addition to failure to heed the demands by Nigerians to change his Service Chiefs and inject new blood into the nation’s security architecture.
