Governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said on Saturday that President Muhammadu Buhari has failed Nigerians at this time of grave national crises.
The governors, who met in Abuja on the security challenge across the country, were particularly worried about what they called the unrestricted incursion of Boko Haram terrorists into newer and inner territories.
The National President of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), Bishop Wale Oke, also speaking on the state of the nation, said the country is under siege and bleeding.
The PDP governors, in a communiqué at the end of their meeting, lamented what they described as the capitulation of the security agencies and the federal government, saying: “In the view of the meeting, President Buhari has failed the people at a time of grave national crises.”
They bemoaned the daily killing of innocent Nigerians, including police and other personnel, and the abduction of hapless Nigerians, including students in primary, secondary and tertiary institutions in different parts of the country.
Nigeria, according to them, is fast descending into anarchy, with security of lives and property practically non-existent.“This state of anarchy is so widespread that every state in the country is affected. Effective policing and security is no longer guaranteed, especially for ordinary citizens and for day-to-day affairs in Nigeria,” they said. (Nation)
