President Muhamadu Buhari’s aide on social media, Lauretta Onochie has attacked Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) for trying to be a part of the Buhari-led administration project.
Onochie, reacting to a tweet by the former vice president where he lamented on the worsening state of security in the country.
Atiku had recommended that community policing which was used to combat effectively crime when he was a child, should be brought back.

He said: When I was a child, Nigeria had little crime. We did not depend on police from Lagos or Kaduna. We had a community police system. Nigeria must return to community policing, adapted to suit the culture and history of each of the 6 zones, in order to stem the tide of insecurity.
Reacting to Atiku’s comment, Onochie said Atiku had no idea that former president Olusegun Obasanjo established community policing because he was too busy selling off national treasures.
She wrote: Community policing was established by President Obasanjo but as with #PDPideas, not implemented. You were not aware because you were busy selling off National treasures.
She accused the PDP presidential candidate of now wanting to be a part of the project because he heard that Buhari was about to implement it.
Now you hear @MBuhari is about to fully implement Community Policing and you want to be part of it, she tweeted.
Stop it, Ndok!

National Broadcast: PDP Slams Buhari Over ‘Disappointing, Empty’ Speech – PDP
Recall that Buhari in his speech called for an end to the protest, adding that his government had already accepted and started implementing demands of the protesters.
He, however, failed to acknowledge the shooting of protesters by soldiers of the Nigerian Army at the Lekki Toll Gate on Tuesday night.
Reacting in a statement on Thursday night by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbodinyan, the PDP said Buhari’s address was depressing and failed empathy test.
The party appealed to Nigerians, particularly the youth, to remain calm and allow a return to normal life in the collective quest for peaceful co-existence in the overall interest of the nation.
PDP Asks Buhari To Stop Killing Of #EndSARS Protesters Across Nigeria
This was contained in a statement titled “EndSARS- Lekki Massacre,” signed by the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, late on Tuesday.
Ologbodiyan said, “The Peoples Democratic Party, condemns in very strong terms, the killing of peaceful protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate in Lagos as well as other parts of our country.
“It is shocking that security agents and, in some cases, thugs, were reportedly deployed to end the lives of promising Nigerians. This, to say the least, is saddening.
“Those responsible for the heinous murder of the innocent and harmless Nigerians must account for their nefarious acts.
“The PDP calls on President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately direct an end to these wanton killings across our nation.

He urged the protesting youths to leave the streets and embrace dialogue.
