A former deputy national publicity secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Timi Frank, has reacted to the worsening security situation across the country.
In a statement sent to Legit.ng on Friday, May 3, Frank who is a political ally to Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, insisted that all the money meant to buy equipment have been stolen by a clique inside the All Progressives Congress (APC)’s administration.
“All the money meant to the purchase weapons have been stolen by the APC government. The president cannot sack the tired and long due for retirement service chiefs because the secret of his illegal second term is in their (service chiefs) hands.
“A caring president cannot abandon the country when the nation is on fire. Gen. Buhari does not care and that is why he chose to travel for a private matter when his subjects are dying in large numbers to bandtry, kidnapping and hunger,” Comrade Frank stated.
On the economy, Comrade Frank said the country is now back to recession, adding that unemployment has also gone through the roof with 33.5% of the total population practically begging for their daily bread.
According to him, the government of the APC has ran out of ideas on how to take the people out of poverty.
“Nigerians should take note that the #NEXT LEVEL Buhari promised the country is now being implemented fully, where insecurity reigns supreme, where hunger and poverty stare Nigerians in the face, job loss and begging is the order of the day, and lack of respect for the rule of law has become the badge of honour for the government of the day,” he added.
He, however, called on leaders of thought, genuine Civil Society Organisations and all Nigerians to speak up and act before the socio-economic situation in the country degenerates irretrievably.
He also declared support for the leader of the Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere, Chief Ayo Adebanjo, on his recent comment that President Muhammadu Buhari should not be recognised as president-elect.
Comrade Frank said until the Supreme Court determines the true winner of the 2019 presidential election, the president should not be addressed as a president-elect
“It is unfortunate that Nigeria has very few men like Pa Adebanjo, who can boldly say it as it is. Even at their very old age, hypocrisy is still a meal ticket for so many and that is why illegality reigns supreme in Nigeria.
“Under the watch of Buhari, there is no governance and that is why his appointees are taking advantage of his incompetence to loot public funds. Gen. Buhari has taken the country from bad to worse, and democracy is now getting another meaning under the nose of a failed resident,” Frank stated.
Meanwhile, the House of Representatives, on Thursday, April 2, directed the federal government to declare a state of emergency in Safana/Batsari/Dan Musa federal constituency of Kastina state, as well as deploy military in the area to check criminal activities in the constituency.
This followed the adoption of a motion by Ahmed Safana on the need for government to intervene in wanton killing of innocent persons, destruction of property by armed robbers and kidnappers in the area.
Safana, in his lead debate, informed the House that various communities in his constituency were currently under seige by bandits armed with sophisticated weapons, noting that the bandits operate both at night and in the day, killing and abducting people.
