The party’s National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, said the gesture is meant to honour the victims of the shooting Lekki Toll Gate in Lagos.

He said the party has taken the decision in reaction to President Muhammadu Buhari’s broadcast on the #EndSARS protests in the country.

“In solidarity with Nigerians, our party has directed that our flag in all our offices across the nation be flown at half-mast for a period of one week, beginning from Friday.

“The PDP urges all men and women of good faith to join forces in praying for our country, as well as working towards solutions and peaceful resolution of the crisis which seeks to envelope our dear nation,” Ologbondiyan said.

He expressed the party’s dissatisfaction with the President’s speech, saying it was disconnected from the realities of the country in the last two weeks.

The PDP official said President Buhari was expected to comment on the concrete steps being taken to arrest the situation.

“Furthermore, Nigerians had expected that Mr President would provide the lead for the much-needed overhauling of our security architecture to meet the demands of professionalism and respect for rules of engagement,” he said.

Ologbondiyan, however, appealed to Nigerians, particularly the youths, to remain calm and allow a return to normal life in the collective quest for peaceful co-existence in the overall interest of our nation.

President Buhari in his nationwide broadcast appealed to #EndSARS protesters to resist the temptation of being used by some subversive elements to cause chaos with the aim of truncating the nation’s nascent democracy.
