Written by on December 16, 2020

THE AREWA CONSULTATIVE FORUM (ACF) HAS HIT PRESIDENT MUHAMMADU BUHARI HARD, DECLARING THAT NIGERIA WAS NO LONGER SAFE UNDER HIS WATCH.

THE GROUP WAS REACTING TO THE WORSENING SECURITY SITUATION IN THE COUNTRY, ESPECIALLY IN THE NORTH THAT HAS BEEN WITNESSING INCREASING INSURGENTS AND BANDITS ACTIVITY AMONGST OTHER CRIMINAL ACTIONS OF RECENT.

THE GROUP’S BOARD OF TRUSTEES HANDED DOWN THE VERDICT AT ITS MAIDEN MEETING SINCE THE INAUGURATION OF THE NEW EXECUTIVE OF THE ACF IN MARCH, LAMENTING THAT THE BUHARI-LED GOVERNMENT HAD FAILED TO HEED ITS ADVICE ON HOW TO TACKLE THE SPATE OF INSECURITY IN THE LAND.

THE GROUP’S NATIONAL PUBLICITY SECRETARY, EMMANUEL YAWE, WHO SPOKE TO JOURNALISTS AFTER THE BOT MEETING IN KADUNA ON TUESDAY, SAID THE GROUP WAS NOT HAPPY WITH THE SECURITY SITUATION IN NIGERIA.

HE ALSO NOTED THAT THE FORUM WAS EVEN TIRED OF COMPLAINING BECAUSE THE GOVERNMENT APPEARED INACTIVE ABOUT THE INSECURITY.

ACCORDING TO HIM, NIGERIAN LEADERS SHOULD TELL NIGERIANS WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF THEIR OWN CHILDREN ARE KIDNAPPED LIKE THE POOR MASSES.

SPEAKING ON THE ABDUCTION OF STUDENTS OF GOVERNMENT SCIENCE SECONDARY SCHOOL, KANKARA IN KATSINA STATE, THE ACF BOT SAID IT WAS MOST DISTURBING FOR THE GOVERNMENT TO SAY THEY WERE STILL NEGOTIATING WITH THE BANDITS ON HOW TO RELEASE THE BOYS.
