Atiku Knocks Tinubu Over Rising Insecurity In Nigeria


0

Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar has lambasted the Tinubu-led administration over the rising insecurity in the country.

Atiku who posted this on his X account on Friday, March 8, 2024, reminded the government that the security and welfare of citizens is its primary responsibility.

He lamented that the problem of insecurity in Nigeria was getting worse by the day, with terrifying news of banditry, kidnapping, and bloodletting that has turned the country into one of the most terrorized territories on earth.

Atiku who was the Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 general election, noted that within one week, there were reported cases of mass abduction of hapless citizens in the Northwest and Northeast regions of the country.

He said, in the early hours of Thursday, school children numbering over 280, together with their teachers, were abducted in Kunga, Kaduna State, by bandits riding on motorcycles, without any challenge by security agencies.

The Ex-VP said, earlier in the week, it was reported that scores of women and children fetching firewood were abducted by gun-totting bandits suspected to be members of Boko Haram.

He said, it was also reported that over 200 people, mostly women and children, were abducted from the IDP camp in Ngala in Bornu State, noting that the cases were endless, and the problem seems interminable.

He accused the government of playing the ostrich while the nation was plagued by insecurity.

He said, the APC-controlled government has failed woefully to give the people the basic things expected of a responsive government, which according to him, was a clear manifestation of the failure of governance.

He lamented that “while the weak and vulnerable are neglected, the government is making empty rhetoric about reforms. And while our young men are abducted, killed, or conscripted into the army of the terrorists and our women and girls are ravished and subjected to different forms of gender-based violence, the authorities do nothing”.

While sympathising with the victims and their families, Atiku urged the security agencies to rise up to the challenge and save innocent citizens from the horrors of banditry and terrorism.
