The Senate Minority Leader, Chief Eyinnaya Abaribe has criticized the handling of the security situation in the country by the Muhammadu Buhari led government, Njenje Media News reports.
Abaribe while speaking as a guest on Channels TV Television program, ‘Politics Today’, said even with Buhari’s latest order to the Service Chiefs asking them to identify leaders of bandits, kidnappers, he lamented that the president has not handled the challenges with a firm hand.
The former Abia State Deputy Governor insisted that “nobody takes Buhari seriously, not even the service chiefs”.
“Why would we take him (President Muhammadu Buhari) seriously? Just the day after he had said we would no longer accept all these kidnappings, this would be the last, they kidnapped the last day,” he said.
“And those people are still there; those innocent Nigerians are still in captivity up till now. He always makes a statement. Every time these things happen, nothing happens. So it is obvious nobody takes him seriously with that. Even the military chiefs, I don’t think they bother themselves.
“This is about the umpteenth time that we are hearing the President giving a marching order. Throughout the Buratai time as the Chief of Army Staff, he was always giving marching orders so he has given just another one,” Abaribe insisted.
