FG Clueless On Insecurity, Benue Killings – Fayose

Published

on

Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose has criticized President Muhammadu Buhari for not taking necessary action to stop incessant killings in Benue State and other parts of the country.

The governor who was reacting to the latest killings by herdsmen in Benue State, wondered why a retired Army general and one-time military Head of State who contested and won election on the premises of securing lives and property of the citizenry could not live up to his promises.

“It is shameful that Nigerians are dying daily with Buhari clueless and incompetent to handle the crisis.

“It is beyond dispute that the Buhari administration has lost the battle against insurgency and the killer herdsmen. Buhari is helpless as he is reduced to offering condolences on a daily basis.

“Nigerians are dying on a daily basis. Innocent souls are being wasted by herdsmen and the Buhari administration has lost all moral right to continue in office. Why is he still sitting in office? Doing what, if I may ask”, he added.

He described the President Buhari as a captured president who has been reduced to offering condolences to Nigerians slaughtered by killer herdsmen instead of taking firm action to stop the killings.

In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Idowu Adelusi, the governor said this was a government that lambasted the PDP administration of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan of being clueless and incompetent on security matters “but the same Jonathan administration era is now looking like the golden age of security of lives and properties in Nigeria.

“At no period since 1999 has life been this cheap. Life has become nasty, brutish, and short under the Buhari administration”, he said.

Fayose also expressed misgivings about recent spate of controversial judgments by courts which he said gave the impression of collusion between unscrupulous judges and the Buhari administration to truncate democracy and lead the country into anarchy.

“The situation is getting so bad that we do not know whether the Constitution of the country has been unofficially suspended.

“Nigerians have been unlucky with Buhari as president. He is too old, too analogue, too incompetent, too clueless and he is not ready to admit and yield for a competent leader. This country has never had it this bad. Gradually, Buhari is becoming a maximum ruler,” he added.
