Arewa Forum Berates Buhari Over Perennial Insecurity In The North

FG Approves Establishment Of 10 National Parks

The Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) says northerners are angry with President Muhammadu Buhari over his handling of the security situation in the region.

The forum made this known in a statement by its national publicity secretary, Emmanuel Yawe.

The forum expressed worry over the insecurity in the northern part of the country.

It added that insecurity in the country has worsened since its last meeting where it called on President Muhammadu Buhari to give attention to the concerns raised.

It reminded the president of the oath he swore to protect the people, saying the president knows what it is like to swear with the Quran and not honour it.

The ACF said it is worried that there have been “serial killings of more people in the north by bandits” whom Muhammad Dingyadi, minister of police “claimed falsely have been defeated”..

“Even as the Minister was claiming falsely, whether in ignorance or deliberate, victory over bandits, 12 Police Superintendents on official duty from Zamfara to Kano were overpowered by superior tactics and force while driving in a convoy and abducted with a heavy ransom demand on each policeman’s family,” the statement read.

“Apart from that, the bandits mounted four roadblocks on Kaduna- Abuja road whom the police have claimed severally that they have liberated from bandits.

“We feel there is no need to call on President Buhari to live up to his oath of office. He knows more than anybody else the implications of swearing on the Quran and refusing to honour your oath to the Almighty.

“We are only for the umpteenth time conveying the anger and frustrations of many Northerners to him so that he will do the needful and speedily too. It is getting too late.”
