- The call by House of Representatives on President Buhari to come explain the nation's security situation has been condemned by the Coalition for Nigeria Movement
- The group said the call by the House is a desperate move by his political enemies to distract him from his task
- According to the coalition, the president and the country's security chiefs should be praised for how they have been able to deal with insecurity
The Coalition for Nigeria Movement has shown displeasure at the recent call by members of the House of Representatives on President Muhammadu Buhari to come before it over the security situation in the country.
The group said that the president has tried, and that Buhari and the security agencies should rather be praised for how they have handled the bandits and criminals in Zamfara and Yobe states, Vanguard reports.
The coalition made this known through its chairman, Chief Peremobowei Success, while speaking with newsmen on Thursday, April 11.
Success said that the recent call by the House to invite Buhari over the security situation is a distracting move by his political enemies, adding that that the president has done much in ensuring security.
He said: “There has been a lot of unapprised and malicious criticism of the president and our security agencies with regards to the handling of issues around security in the country.
"We said unapprised and malicious because you all know and can attest to the fact that the president has done tremendously well in handling insecurity in the country and has also boosted the fighting capacity and morale of the Nigerian security forces as exemplified in the various exploits of the military in routing out terrorists disturbing the peace of the Nation.
"We call on all Nigerians to take it as a solemn responsibility to complement the efforts of our president and security agencies in their respective ways.
"Security is key and as such the responsibility of all. Instead of politicizing security issues, we should form a coalition with the government of the day to deal with these evil and dark forces threatening our corporate existence. We strongly state that anything short of this on the part of citizens is a travesty."
