WORST REIGN OF INSECURITY SINCE 1914: THE BUHARI PAINFUL LEGACY 

There is no Nigerian who is not witnessing the worst run of insecurity in living memory.  Nobody is safe anywhere in the country.

All the Federal Government Security Agencies have been overwhelmed by the tsunami of insecurity.  All six geo-political zones have been overrun by insecurity.

At the time that failed President Muhammadu Buhari took over, insecurity was restricted to the North-East.  In fact,  Boko Haram was an issue as Buhari claimed he would take up arms as a retired general. When Buhari won, he claimed that a certain Command Centre was relocated to Maiduguri.  That was mere game. There was no relocation.

Instead, insecurity was relocated to North-West,  North-Central and South-West.  States like Sokoto,  Kaduna, Katsina, Kano, Zamfara and Kebbi States are now killing fields. Worse than the North East.  In the North-Central, Plateau,  Benue,  Nasarawa, Kogi and Niger are now states where people are killed with reckless abandon.  Most of these States  host hundreds of Internally Displaced Persons camps.

At the centre of the explosion of insecurity are the Herdsmen from Buhari’s ethnic Nationality.  They unleash deaths everywhere.  Rather than address it, the Buhari Administration continues to defend them.

Rather than protect Nigerians,  the security agencies have become promoters of the rigging of elections in favour of the ruling party.  Soldiers and policemen sprint with Electoral materials and write fictitious results during elections,  while communities are left insecure.

To show that President Muhammadu Buhari is not interested in improved security,  he has continued to work with his non-performing Service Chiefs.  There is no action to check criminals anywhere.

As such, states and regions are now seeking for their own Salvation.  It is clear that the Buhari Administration has failed to secure Nigeria and has no plans to do so.

Even relatively peaceful zones like South-East and South-South, agents of the Buhari administration,  using the herdsmen and Miyetti Allah have been working daily to provoke mass insecurity.  They also use the security agencies to provoke the people.

Buhari’s reign of insecurity is worsened by the fact that his administration is the least performing.  There  are no projects and developmental  programmes to empower the people.

Buhari’s Administration has close to four years to right the wrong.  Buhari’s Administration should desist from lies and illegal use of Federal Security services and focus on protecting Nigerians. There should be an end to governmental self-deceit.
