The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has called on the United Nations General Assembly, UNGA, and other World Leaders, to query President Muhammadu Buhari over his role in the escalation of terrorism, violation of human rights, electoral malpractices, corruption, national division, and the economic ruin of Nigeria in the last six years, under his watch, .
The PDP made the call in a series of tweets on Thursday, ahead of President Buhari’s address of the United Nations General Assembly, in New York, United States of America, USA, today (Friday).
The PDP tweeted: “As President @MBuhari sets to address the 76th session of the @UN General Assembly (UNGA), in New York, on Friday, the @OfficialPDPNig asks the world body and other democratic institutions to query the President on the role of his administration in the escalation of terrorism, violation of rights, electoral malpractices, corruption, national division, and economic ruin of Nigeria in the last six years.
“The @OfficialPDPNig notes that the sanctity of human lives, freedom, respect for human rights, justice, and rule of law, credible elections, democratic governance, promotion of peace, accountability in governance, economic development, among others, which the General Assembly stands for, have all been violated by the @MBuhari administration.”
The PDP urged the General Assembly not to lose sight of the reports by credible International Organisations, including the “US Department of State, as well as @amnesty, on cases of arbitrary arrests and detention in dehumanising facilities, widespread extrajudicial killings, sudden disappearances of dissenting voices, and disregard to rule of law, under President @MBuhari’s watch.
“This is in addition to brazen disobedience to court orders, use of Security Forces to suppress citizens, Media gagging, and systemic injustices that underscore the horrible situation in @MBuhari’s Nigeria, as also profiled by the @IntlCrimCourt
“We urge the General Assembly to question President @MBuhari on the failures and alleged compromises of our nation’s security coordination under his administration, leading to unabating mass killings, kidnapping, banditry, arson, and marauding of communities across our nation, to the extent that Nigeria now ranks as the third country with the highest level of terrorism, after Iran and Afghanistan.”
