Comrade Frank in a statement sent to Legit.ng on Sunday, April 7, opined that the mindless looting of public funds that has so far characterised the current administration is directly responsible for persistent insecurity in the country.

He lamented that the president has woefully failed to protect Nigerians and demanded that the current “tired and incompetent heads of security agencies and Service Chiefs be sacked.”

He said he believes, “no serious government will keep incompetent Service Chiefs if the president himself is not personally benefiting from their cluelessness.”

He added that if Buhari’s government is to be judged by the level of insecurity in the country, failure would be an under statement in describing the current administration.

According to him, no government has approved such humongous amount of fund to tackle insecurity in the history of Nigeria without noticeable improvement in the security of the country as is presently the case.

“The only achievement we have seen through the current military administration is propaganda and fake news to defend their looting,” he added.

He, however, called on the international community to urgently come to the aid of Nigerians security-wise to prevent the growing humanitarian situation in the country from getting out of hand, adding that, “the present administration has lost the capacity and will to protect the people.”
