A Northern political and cultural association, Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF), has berated the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration over the rising case of insecurity in the country.
Speaking during an appearance on Channels Television on Wednesday, the National Publicity Secretary of the ACF, Emmanuel Waye, says the forum has lost faith in the President to secure the nation.
According to Waye, the worsening level of insecurity in the country is highly regretted, noting that everything possible should be done to stop the killings and kidnapping in the North.
He opined that no northerner is happy with the spate of killings and attacks in the region, noting that the entire north isn’t secured.
Waye noted that fear has gripped him now that he no longer feels safe travelling to his country home in Taraba State following the frequent report of killings and attacks.
“I can’t go to my home state of Taraba. The whole place is in chaos, they are killing people every day. That one is not publicised because there is no oil in Taraba.
“All over the north, there is insecurity. I have never felt unsafe like I feel now. What can I say? You have seen what is happening to our people,” he said.
“How can I have faith in someone who presides over this kind of thing? I had faith in him when I followed him as a reporter and he chased away some foreigners who were coming to kill us,” he said.
“When he was coming to be President, I had faith in him. I witnessed how successful this man was in chasing enemies out of our country in 1983. But now, 300 people kidnapped in his home state.” he added.
