Insecurity: Nigeria is in trouble – ADC presidential candidate 


The presidential standard bearer of the African Democratic Congress (ADC), Dumebi Kachikwu, has lamented the continuous increase of insecurity in the country, noting that “Nigeria is in a state of war and we are in trouble.’

Kachikwu lament that President Muhammadu Buhari has been unable to address insecurity, saying “he no longer runs the affairs of this nation and rather than resign honourably he watches as Nigerians die daily.

He stated this while unveiling Amed Buhari, as his running mate for the forthcoming 2023 electios. on Wednesday in Abuja.

Lementing on the insecurity in Nigeria he said, “Yesterday the headline of a major newspaper in Nigeria reads; ‘ISWAP plots massive attacks on Lagos, Kaduna and other locations. ’This is eliciting panic as those of us who didn’t understand our country was in a state of war and those who had been deceived by this government that all was well now realise, we are in trouble.

“Many of us have seen the gory images of eight of our heroic soldiers drawn from the Presidential Guards Brigade killed by terrorists in the Bwari area of Abuja. Bwari is a 30 mins drive from the residence of our President. We are told that they planned to attack the Nigerian Law School.  The Kuje Prison that was attacked a few weeks ago and terrorists released is also a thirty minutes drive from President Buhari’s residence.

“Just in case we are forgetting his advance team was attacked in Katsina on the same day the prison was attacked, and some policemen killed. Nigeria has become the killing field of the world. Our military are being slaughtered, our citizens are being slaughtered and our dear President went to Liberia to make a speech on security. This same President left the country for Senegal a few hours after the Kuje prison attack.

“We now begin to wonder if there is a connection between his trips and the attacks. Is he running? This question has to be asked because he swore an oath to defend the lives and property of Nigerians, but he is now presiding over our funerals. He has run out of excuses for the abysmal failure of his government, so he just takes off. Many people have rumoured that this is a carefully orchestrated plan by this government to extend their stay in office by ensuring the country won’t be able to hold elections while some also say they want to hand over the country to terrorists similar to what we saw in Afghanistan, but I believe that it is a simple case of a man who can’t give what he doesn’t have.

“He no longer has the capacity to run the affairs of this nation and rather than resign honourably he watches as Nigerians die daily. This is not why we are here today, but I can’t just be silent in the face of this carnage.”
