The Peoples Democratic Party has directed that its flag at all the party’s offices be flown at half-mast for a period of one week, beginning from Friday.

The party’s National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, disclosed this in a statement issued in Abuja on Thursday in reaction to President Muhammadu Buhari’s broadcast on the #EndSARS protests in the country.

Ologbondiyan said the directive was in honour of the victims of alleged killings at the Lekki Toll Gate in Lagos.

He added: “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, however, expressed the party’s dissatisfaction with President Muhammadu Buhari’s speech, saying it was disconnected from the realities of the occurrences in the country in the last two weeks.

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