The administration of President Muhammadu Buhari has been described as the worst in the history of the country.
Naija News reports that the Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG) stated this on Friday while reacting to the attack on innocent Nigerians by bandit terrorists on the Kaduna-Abuja Highway.
In a statement issued by its spokesperson, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, CNG claimed that the Buhari-led administration has failed to protect the lives of Nigerians living in the Northern part of the country.
Suleiman stated that the federal government has continued to give excuses and fake promises of tackling insecurity in the North and in the country in general.
The statement reads: “It is unacceptable for the people of the North to continue to live under this level of exposure to criminals who freely attack, kill, maim, rape, kidnap, burn villages and rustle cattle, while the President and security chiefs issue threats and promises that have no effect.
“While all northern states governors have completely ran out of ideas, the President and federal troops keep telling us that they are doing something about the daunting security situation, but by now all northerners must have realized that our communities have been abandoned to the mercy of unforgivable poverty and armed criminals that continuously waste the greatest asset of the region; its population, weakening us politically and pauperising the region economically.
“Enough of taking excuses and fake promises of action from an administration that runs from threats and acquired the reputation of being the worst in the history of our nation in terms of any capacity to generate confidence in its ability to achieve security of citizens’ lives and properties.
“All northerners are by now alarmed at the rising insecurity of communities and their properties in the with the escalation of attacks by bandits, rustlers insurgents and other assortments of armed criminals who roam towns and villages at will, wreaking havoc.
“It was no longer in doubt that the current federal administration and set of state governors have lost the capacity and necessary courage to discharge the vital constitutional duty that they swore to uphold.
“The situation is getting worse literally by the day, as bandits and insurgents take advantage of the huge vacuum in the administration’s political will and capacity to act which they exploit with disastrous consequences on communities and individuals.
“The situation under which all northern communities live today is no longer tolerable, adding that everyone must rise to protect themselves.”
