Confused FG fighting focused criminals in Nigeria – ADAPHAI
A Civil Society Organisation, Advocacy for Advancement of Peace & Harmony in Africa Initiative (ADAPHAI) has revealed that the insecurity facing the country and the struggle against terrorists as a battle between confused government and focused criminal agents.
ADAPHAI has commended Nigerian soldiers for exhibiting necessary patriotism in the struggle against terrorists.
It has slammed President Muhammadu Buhari-led government for lack of vision, reaffirming that the president “terribly performed below expectations of Nigerians, making life more vulnerable for every citizen more than ever before.”
The body revealed that the body language of the President has not suggested genuine zeal to combat terrorism and banditry.
ADAPHAI made this revelation via a statement issued on Friday morning titled: “Nigeria under siege of criminals: An urgent call for action”.
In the signed statement, signed by its National Coordinator, Sulaimon Suberu said the Federal Government and military authorities were allegedly paying leap service to the fight against insurgency.
Suberu said soldiers at the battlefield were showing seriousness with little or no corresponding incentives for motivation.
“The systemic rise in the activities of terrorists and bandits across Nigeria, resulting in deaths of thousands of Nigerians and wanton destruction of property and public facility, despite huge budgetary allocations to Defence is a pointer to the fact that this government is confused and practically helpless.
“The present siege on Nigeria has further shown that Buhari and his acolytes, instead of understudying the tenets and scope of asymmetric war of Boko Haram insurgency and map out unique strategies of tackling it headlong before assumption of office in 2015 were more concerned about power without alacrity for service delivery.
“Now, Nigeria is presently at the crossroads, the President whether he likes it or not must protect the corporate entity of Nigeria by all possible means, or else, his name will go down in the history book as the weakest and the most clueless President ever in the history of Nigeria”.
ADAPHAI, has called on past Presidents and heads of state, and well meaning Nigerians home and abroad to urgently come to the aid of the country before it is too late.
