Leave Abaribe & Garba Shehu, Nigeria is unsafe~NEWSEXTRA






By Omooba Damilare Oloyede 

The truth about Nigeria as at this mornig is that Nigeria; Africa's most populous black nation is unsafe. Insecurity is the order of the day, and no one is spared.

As Boko Haram insurgents are having their way in the North East slaughtering, bombing and maiming without check so is Fulani herdsmen eke a leaving out of their inhumane parasitic grazing along the North Central states. Or we talk about the kidnapping and abduction in the North West, particularly the Abuja-Kaduna expressway. Down the south here, pipeline vandalism, kidnapping, banditry, assassination and robbery is no more a news to many. Why? How did we get here?

If after their tenure expiration or is it the retirement that's due? And there is obvious improvement in the security of lives and properties, one would have looked away, but with the worsened situation, we all can only say it's time for all service chiefs to go. Not even when a sitting governor of Borno State, Prof. Zulum  reportedly said Army chiefs are accomplice in the Boko Haram insurgencies, yet no head is rolling, but why?

Rather than face this issue headlong and find deserving solution unanimously, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe who is the minority leader in the Senate seems to be playing to the gallery by asking the President to resign. That's pure politicking taken overboard. I know some will say General Buhari and his goons too did same some 7 or 6 years ago, but do we continue to rigmarole till the country is wiped away by violence and stupid insurgency? 

Worst of it, the presidential spokesperson Garba Shehu, rather than provide information about plans to rejig the security architecture of the nation, he took his defence for his pot of soup(sorry his boss) to the gutters by calling a Senator's suggestion as FOOLISH. But how did we get here as as nation? Issues about knife isn't important to us anymore, rather we prefer to see everything from the prism of APC and PDP, hope PDP or APC pays for security levies at our various residential estates?

The Senate is displeased with the leadership of our security architecture, the House of Representatives has even called for their immediate resignation, that's the true state of the mind of an average Nigeria, Buratai and his colleagues should all go. The party is over!!!

It is high time President Muhammadu Buhari show us that indeed he earned the military rank "Maj-Gen, he needs to be decisive and be seen as though he truly is.
