Describing President Buhari as “nepotistic” while further disclosing that other “Nigerian ethnic nationalities and particularly the Northern Christians are under siege, a group of Christians in the North, under the aegis of Arewa Christians and Indigenous Pastors Association has pleaded with International bodies to help rescue Nigerians.
The Northern Christians who scored President Buhari very low on security; saying his government has failed in its primary responsibility of protecting lives and property, pleaded with African Union, the European Union, the Commonwealth of Nations, the United Nations and the United States of America to help put an end to the “bad leadership” of President Muhammadu Buhari.
President of ACIPA, Luke Shehu who spoke on behalf of the group said;
“While we may not conclude that insurgency in Nigeria is state-sponsored, there is clear and obvious complicity by government officials in some quarters.
“This administration should stop deceiving Nigerians that Boko Haram has been defeated. The truth is that after three years, Boko Haram has yet to be defeated despite the pre-election promise to do so in less than six months.”
The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, in the 19 Northern states and Abuja, has also reacted to the recent abduction of 110 girls of Government Secondary School, Dapchi, Yobe State.
Rev. John Joseph Hayab who spoke on behalf of the group, said Nigeria security agencies must not play the propaganda game anymore.
CAN is deeply concerned with this development. When we have not yet got back all the Chibok girls, and now another 110 school girls have been kidnapped. And sadly, though, the Yobe State government have apologized for its first denial, but that denial made Nigerians more confused because it shows we cannot be truthful when fellow Nigerians are affected. The government and the security agencies must sit up.
The girls must not stay long like the previous ones before they are released. The girls must be brought back alive. The young girls are Nigerians. They need the protection of the Nigerian government. These girls can be anybody’s daughters. CAN is saying that the Nigeria security agencies must not play the propaganda game anymore. They should go after the criminals that have abducted these girls.
The security should take serious action and stop making noise and confusing people. This particular abduction is a challenge to government to prove to Nigerians that the huge spending on security is not just a drain on our resources, because when we hear and read stories that billions of dollars is expended for security and we still have issues like this, then it tells us that there is a serious problem in the country.” he said
