ACF decries FG’s lamentations, says Nigeria insecure under Buhari


The Pan-northern socio-political organization, Arewa Consultative Forum, on Tuesday went hard on the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari, over the disturbing insecurity across the country, especially in the North.

The forum said Nigeria as a country was no longer secure and safe under the Buhari regime.

This was the verdict of the ACF’s Board of Trustees, one of the highest organs of the northern body.

Rising from its maiden meeting since the inauguration of the new executive of the ACF in March, the body also lamented that the Buhari -led government had failed to heed its advice on how to tackle the spate of insecurity in the land.

Speaking with newsmen shortly after the BoT meeting in Kaduna, the forum’s National Publicity Secretary, Emmanuel Yawe, said the group was not happy with the security situation in Nigeria.

Yawe noted that the forum was even tired of complaining because the government appeared inactive about the insecurity.

According to the ACF spokesman, Nigerian leaders should tell Nigerians what will happen if their own children are kidnapped like the poor masses.

He said, “Today’s (Tuesday) meeting is very crucial to the operations of ACF because it is the first meeting of the newly constituted Board of Trustees (BOT).

“We discussed security and we are worried because Nigerians are not very secure. We are not happy about insecurity in the country. We are looking at the immediate ways and long term of getting security improved.”

On the abduction of students of Government Science Secondary School, Kankara in Katsina, the northern body said it was most disturbing for the government to say they were still negotiating with the bandits on how to release the boys.
