- President Muhammadu Buhari has being scored low on security and economy
- The verdict was passed on the president by a lawmaker from Edo state, Honourable Omoregie Ogbeide-Ihama
- According to him, Nigerians no longer feel secure, even in their homes and outside their homes
Honourable Omoregie Ogbeide-Ihama has scored the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari low on security and economy.
The member, representing Oredo Federal Constituency of Edo state in the National Assembly passed the verdict on Monday, April 16, while speaking to journalists in Benin, the Edo state capital.
He used the opportunity to call on the government to deploy the necessary security apparatus to check the current serial killings now going on across the country.
According to him, within this year alone, the country has recorded several senseless killings while nothing has been done to stop the carnage and no plan on how to avert future occurrence.
His words: “As you can see, people were killed, just few days ago, you see what happened in Offa, Kwara state, you see what has been happening in Benue, in Taraba, Plateau, Zamfara even in the eastern states and Rivers state is not left out in the massacre.
“The death recorded this year alone is alarming and for every life we lost as a people, we should reflect seriously on how to avert future occurrence but it seems like nothing is being done.
“I won’t give a pass mark to the Federal Government in terms of security and economy because it is visible everywhere even to the blind that there is hunger strike in the nation and at the same time Nigerians no longer feel secure, even in their homes and outside their homes or on the road.
“This country belongs to us all and the primary responsibility of government is to ensure security of lives and property. So, it is imperative that the government must sit up and ensure that the areas of security and economy are covered because apparently if you are not doing well in any sector, it means that you have not lived up to expectation.
“On the political front, it is still very hazy, one cannot be very specific on the political direction of Nigeria today as a nation in terms of 2019, so first thing first."
Meanwhile, Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike, has accused the federal government of playing politics with the security challenges in Rivers state.
NAIJ.com gathered that the governor made the accusation when he received members of the governing council of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria at the Government House, Port Harcourt on Tuesday, April 10.
According to him, when Rivers state had issues with kidnappings, the federal government and her agents plotted to declare a state of emergency instead of addressing the security challenge.
