Second Republic Governor of Kaduna State, Alhaji Balarabe Musa, has faulted President Muhammadu Buhari over the high level insecurity and killings in the country, mostly in Southern Kaduna.
Balarabe Musa, who was reacting to Prof. Obadiah Mailafia’s outburst in an interview, said the decision by the Federal Government to import arms and ammunition from Russia, China, United States and Jordan is not something to be taken seriously anymore, since the government has allowed the terrorists and armed bandits to have already taken over the country before realizing the need for arms importation.
While he condemned the attacks and killings in Southern Kaduna and other parts of Nigeria, Musa said that “No serious and patriotic government would allow this level of killings of its citizens by terrorist and be watching aimlessly.”
According to Musa, “President Buhari has failed in all aspects of governance, including the economy and the handling of insecurity in Nigeria,” pointing out that, “Nigerians must do a lot to ensure that civil war does not break out under the Buhari’s administration, as relayed by Prof Obadiah.
“Insecurity exists in all parts of the country, but it is worst in the North, Northeast and Northwest.”
Alhaji Musa remarked that poor governance by Buhari’s government is already having negative effects on the nation’s image, saying, “Imagine the President saying he wants to import arms from Russia, China, US and Jordan; these countries will see us as a nation that is not serious. Is it the issue of arms only?
“Is it now we suddenly realize that we import arms when the people have been killed and maimed by terrorists and armed bandits? See, this is an unserious and irresponsible government. Nigerians should not take the government serious over this mindless level of insecurity.
“The level of insecurity and economic mismanagement has gone to higher level. Anything can happen. This can even lead to civil disobedience and civil war,” Musa lamented.
On Kaduna, he said, “You see, one government cannot deal with the insecurity in one state when the insecurity situation is all over the country. The government has lost grip on insecurity in Nigeria.”
The elder statesman said only the commander in chief who is chief security officer of the country and in charge of the resources of the country can be blame for the insecurity situation. “The bulk falls on his table for allowing this level of Insecurity in Nigeria and he should be blamed and be held responsible for the problem Nigeria is facing today”.
