Abule-Ado gas explosion: Proceed to Lagos, PDP tells Buhari

PDP headquarters Abuja

By Yusuf Bello

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Monday charged President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately proceed to Lagos to reassure Nigerians over the horrendous Abule-Ado explosion that killed many, injured others and rendered many more homeless.

According to the PDP, such a national calamity and attendant loss of lives and property, is indeed strange that a leader could reportedly remain distant and not deem it fit to personally identify with the victims through a visit.

The party in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan urged President Buhari’s handlers to immediately schedule a visit to Abule- Ado, Lagos, so that Mr. President can have an on-the-spot assessment of the horrific incident and take corresponding action to avert a future recurrence.

The party also called for a forensic investigation into the spate of explosions, particularly the Abule-Ado disaster, given the alleged conflicting reports on the cause of the incident.
