Insecurity and Buhari’s failed promise.

By Sani Adamu Hassan.

The present Nigerian security situation is considered as disheartening and worrisome considering the devastating effects whereby day in day out people were been killed, kidnapped and hundred of thousands rendered homeless as a result of the activities of Boko Haram insurgency, Banditry, Kidnappers, IPOB among others.

Between 2013 to 2014 when the issue of insecurity persists during the administration of former president Goodluck Jonathan, Muhammadu Buhari centred his campaign in accusing Jonathan and his political party (PDP) for failling to protect the lives and properties of Nigerians thereby promising to address the then only problem of Boko Haram insurgency within a shortage period of time if given the mandate.

Also, in January 7th 2015, Buhari made it clear in Rivers state that ” The fundamental issue facing this country is insecurity and the problem of economy which was being made worse by corruption. I assure you that we are going to finally assemble a competent team of Nigerians to efficiently manage the country, “I am appealing to you, the damage done to this country is great. The level of unemployment, level of insecurity is intolerable. The journey has begun. It will take time, it will take patience, it will take support from you to make sure that we succeed.”

“We should make sure that our votes count. The problem we are facing today is the problem of security and economic bbackwarness. We have gathered competent hands to manage the economy and tackle insecurity.“The level of corruption in Nigeria is intolerable and we will make sure we succeed in fighting corruption when we get there. I wish Nigerians the best of luck and we believe in one indivisible Nigeria” Buhari said.

With all this statement by Mr President, one can said without fear of contradiction that Buharis’s administration has failed Nigerians considering the fact that he even advocated for the immediate resignation of Dr Goodluck Jonathan when the Insecurity persist in 2014 , but where is the promise he made to ensure the protection of life and properties of Nigerian citizens, recently about 40 people where burn alive in Sokoto.

If I may ask,did he fulfill the promise he made during his first and second tenure campaign, did he defeat Boko Haram and Banditry, let’s take a look at the past administration some people don’t even know kidnapping, but now every day people where been kidnapped in Kaduna, Nassarawa, Katsina, Sokoto and Zamfara, what is the action taken by the government, did the north central not part of Nigeria or are they not human beings.

Lets take a look at the country, no place is secured, northeast Boko Haram, North central religious and ethnic conflict, northwest Banditry and Kidnapping, Southeast and Southwest IPOB and Afene fere among others. With all this, when ever the terrorist attack people the only thing Mr President will say “I condemned this attack “, is that what we voted him for just to condemn the attack not taking any necessary action the curtail the occurrence.

Mr President has run a failed administration due to the all huge amount of money being budgeted for security, where are the Super Tucano jets bought from America? are the fighter jet meant off passion? Nigerians need peace and adequate security to avoid sleepless day and night.
