When told that when it concerns security, the president is expected to be adequately kept abreast of development and must be in the know, Adesina said such expectation was incorrect.
Mr. Femi Adesina, special adviser media and publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari, has stressed the need to hear from IGP Ibrahim Idris over the allegation that he failed to relocate to Benue state has ordered by the president.
He said the former president would have, in the first instance, been aware that the IGP did not obey his order.
According to the party, "President Buhari has irredeemably indicted himself ... such unpardonable slipshod attitude to governance is directly responsible for his government's wrecking of the nation's once robust economy as well as other woes that have befallen our nation in his nearly three years in office".
One of the protesters, Jonah Kwaor, who described the operatives as overzealous, said, "We wanted the President to know the magnitude of the senseless killings in our communities, but security men, including the police, drove us away and seized some of our placards".
"For our party, PDP, the expression of President Buhari has once again vindicated our position that our nation has been placed on autopilot cruise with a cabal pretending to be managing our affairs". Nigerians everywhere are wondering why Mr President didn't do a follow up on his instructions to IGP Idris to relocate to Benue and stop the killings and what will happen now that he knows, his orders were defiled by the IGP.
We are finished as a people to know that president Buhari is not empathetic even to the feelings of the bereaved families, that was why he could launch such a grave lie to justify his inhumanity instead of apology.
"The Benue State Governor, Sam Ortom, is amusing. This shows clinically that Mr. President is truly not aware that Nigerians have since abandoned him in his state of unawareness", the PDP stated.
"How can a President give a directive and it is ignored?"
The party, therefore, called on other Nigerians to support their plans to return to power in 2019.
