The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately wade in and arrest the situation of alleged mass deaths in Kano.

The party, in a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan in Abuja on Sunday, also demanded an immediate investigation into the circumstances leading to reported umber of deaths in the state within the last one week.

Ologbondiyan said that the PDP’s call was predicated on conflicting reports emanating from Kano State on the cause of the sudden deaths, particularly at a time when the nation was battling with the spread of COVID-19 pandemic.

He described the situation as a frightening development, calling for presidential visit to the state to identity with the people.

Ologbondiyan said, “The PDP notes with dismay that the Buhari Presidency had failed to take any concrete step on this frightening development, but is, as usual, waiting to be prodded to stand up to the demand of the office and proceed to Kano State to identity with the people, find a solution and contain the ugly situation.

“The party describes as lamentable that President Muhammadu Buhari, who promised to lead from the front, and who recently took up the toga of ECOWAS COVID-19 Response Champion, had rather receded into the safety of Aso Villa and failed to promptly activate any concrete and visible action to investigate and arrest the situation in Kano, where Nigerians are dying in their hundreds.

“The PDP described the situation as yet another manifestation of leadership failure and insensitivity of the Buhari-led All Progressives Congress administration to the plight of Nigerians at critical moments.

“Our party holds that the situation in Kano demands an immediate Presidential visit and investigation at a very high level. Those dying in Kano are Nigerians and must not be abandoned. The development deserves utmost presidential attention to avoid further escalation.”
