Buhari regime irresponsible, cause of acute insecurity: Saraki
Former Senate President Bukola Saraki and former APC chieftain has slammed President Muhammadu Buhari’s regime, including his military advisers, as irresponsible and cause of the worsening deterioration of insecurity in Nigeria.
He insisted that the country’s acute insecurity and other crises bedevilling Nigeria got out of hand because of a lack of accountability by Mr Buhari’s regime.
Mr Saraki spoke on Tuesday in Jos when he addressed delegates from Plateau ahead of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) primary elections slated for May.
Mr Saraki is seeking to clinch the PDP presidential ticket.
“The problem of insecurity in Nigeria is because there has been no accountability. People have done things, and nobody was held accountable for their failures,” explained Mr Saraki. “When I was Senate president, we sat down with security agencies and drew a roadmap on addressing the issue of insecurity, but the report was abandoned.
“If I am the president,” promised the PDP presidential aspirant, “I will hold people accountable, and they will do what is right to end insecurity, and there will be no injustice.”
According to the former Kwara governor, Nigeria is divided, needing someone with the capacity to restore its lost glory and unite the people.
He pointed out that the North-Central had consistently supported other regions to lead the country and deserved similar support from other zones this time.
“We said to ourselves that for many times and many years, we, in the North-Central, have worked hard, we struggled, used our efforts, used our money, used our energies to support other people to lead,” said Mr Saraki. “Everybody, who had become president under this great party, got the seat because of our massive sacrifices.
He stressed that “we have now resolved that it is time for others to vote for us in 2023.”
