PDP Slams Tinubu Over Abduction of Lagos Chairman: “Security Has Failed!”



The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called for the release of Philip Aivoji, chairman of the party’s Lagos chapter.

Hakeem Amode, spokesperson of the party in Lagos, confirmed the abduction on Friday. Aivoji and other party members were reportedly kidnapped on Thursday along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway while returning from a meeting.

Amode said the PDP chairman was in Ibadan to attend a meeting convened by Seyi Makinde and Ademola Adeleke, governors of Oyo and Osun states, respectively.

In a statement on Saturday, Debo Ologunagba, PDP’s national publicity secretary, said the party is “seriously concerned about Hon. Aivoji’s well-being and safety especially considering his age and health status”.

“Our party condemns the distressing spate of kidnap for ransom, mindless killings, marauding of communities and other acts of terrorism across the country under President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s watch and calls for urgent action to ensure the release of all those held in kidnappers’ dens in various parts of the country,” Ologunagba said.

“The alarming situation is an agonising confirmation that the security intelligence, command, operation and coordination structure under President Tinubu has collapsed.

“It is lamentable that despite widespread outcry by Nigerians, the Tinubu administration remains insensitive, nonchalant and laidback on security matters.”
