Why Buhari shouldn’t take all blame on insecurity – Shehu Sani
Shehu Sani, a former Senator, has opined why President Muhammadu Buhari shouldn’t take all the blame for the recent spike of insecurity across the country.
Criminal activities ranging from kidnappings, banditry, killings among others has recently been on the rise.
Critics are quickly to blame the president for failing in that aspect. Some geo-political zones resorted to self-help by setting up regional security outfits to safeguard their domain.
For the former representative of Kaduna Central during the last Senate, the president shouldn’t take all the blame.
Mr Sani said this is because other leaders in the country who are privileged to have met the president has refused to tell the Nigerian leader the true situation on ground.
“We shouldn’t all blame the President for the deterioration of the security situation in the North and the escalation of Banditry and Kidnappings, because those leaders privileged to meet him are afraid of telling him the truth that hurts,” the former lawmaker said in a Facebook post on Sunday.
In the South-West, the state governors from the region launched a security outfit codenamed Amotekun while youths from the North unveiled theirs as Shege Ka Fasa.
The latter is yet to earn the support of Northern state governors.
