Former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory Administration, FCTA, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai, yesterday, threw his weight behind the embattled National Security Adviser, General Andrew Owoye Azazi (rtd), saying he only confirmed what some people have been saying that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, is the cause of all politically-related violence and terrorism in the country.
Speaking exclusively with Vanguard on his reaction to
Azazi’s statement that the menace of insecurity and series of attacks in
Nigeria by the Boko Haram sect could be traced to the zoning policy of
the PDP, El-Rufai said the extra-judicial murder of the Boko Haram
leadership during the late Umaru Yar’Adua’s PDP regime laid the
foundations for the nation’s current insecurity problem.
The commissioner "was the prime target," Mbaseki said.
