Nigeria No Longer A Safe Country To Live Under Buhari – Ex Governor Raises Alarm
Former governor of Ekiti state Ayodele Fayose has raised alarm on the current security challenge the current is facing under President Buhari administration.
The highly controversial figure said the security of lives and property of Nigerians, irrespective of tribe ethnic and religious leanings is no longer guaranteed under the current administration.
In a statement by his spokesman, Lere Olayinka, Fayose said the country is under serious threats from terrorists whose activities have made every place hellish for Nigerians, including traditional rulers.
He called on Nigerians to be security conscious and restrict their movement to avoid falling prey to kidnappers, bandits and terrorists holding the country at jugular.
Fayose said the alleged ties of Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, to terror groups has further exposed the hypocrisy and complicity of the Federal Government in the war against terrorism.
He lampooned the presidency for allegedly defending the terrorists and their salafist philosophy, describing such it “appalling and shameful”.
“It is saddening and worrisome that the spokesmen of the President were the ones going from one media house to another to defend someone who openly supported terrorists.
“In the last three days, over 300 Nigerians have been killed across the country with several others in captivity and this is still not enough for President, Muhammadu Buhari and his men to wear sackcloth and cover themselves with ashes. Rather, they are seen making merry as if nothing has happened.
“It is funny that today, if those running the affairs of the country are not telling us that armed bandits must be seen as innocent until proven guilty, they will be saying offence of forgery is more grievous than open declaration of support for terrorists.
“Because of their failure to take decisive actions against these terrorists that they appear to have sympathy for, Nigeria is no longer safe for anyone to live in.”

It is irresponsible for any legitimate authority watching its citizen being slaughter everyday, folding its arms and expect divine miracle to secure the Country. It is like a father watching his children dying in his presence without making any meaningful attempt to rescue them. There is no iota of doubt that this present administration is being nepotistic and playing political game over the life’s of innocent Nigerians. When it comes to Hausa Fulanis/ Boko Haram, this present government has been always reluctant to take a decisive measure to tackle them but they can quickly deploy Armour Tank and War Plane to southern states/ ESN pretending to prevent violence and secession whereas they have failed to protect their own clan first. If there is anywhere where we need more troops now, it is in the Northern region. Who is deceiving who?
This is not a Country at all and the present situation has already portrayed a complete failed state. Being a leader is not just to wear Agbada with cap sitting down at your comfort zone in Aso Rock and never perturbed about the death of abducted children in various schools. Mr. President you needs to take a drastic measure to show your people that they are secured under you. If you have to ask for outside help, let people know. The 1950 and 60’s idea is not going to work at this present time. You need to take step ahead of terrorists if you indeed trying to provide save lives of Nigerians. It is very disturbing and absurd to see Boko Haram installing their Flag in Nigeria State. I have that feeling that Boko Haram and Kidnappers will soon take over the affairs of this Nation. Please, Mr. president you need to roll your sleeves right now and get to work. That is why you are being voted in.
