The President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, has been told to humbly admit failure in his leadership of the country and take necessary steps to fix the security challenges threatening the very foundations of the nation, reports Jude Atupulazi.
The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, who gave this advice to the president, said the reluctance of the government to exercise the political will to arrest and bring to justice those behind banditry and terrorism in the country was responsible for the killings, kidnapping, cattle rustling and other social vices on innocent citizens in the country.
The General Secretary of CAN, Joseph Daramola, condemned the recent killing of about 22 people in Plateau State and called on President Muhammadu Buhari and his government to stop paying what he called lip service to the unending killings in the country.
‘CAN strongly believes that stopping the killing of innocent Nigerians by criminals cannot be done by mere issuing of press statements and holding periodical meetings with the security chiefs by the president.
‘Until the government shows the political will by arresting and bringing the culprits to book, the shedding of innocent blood will not cease,’ he said.
CAN, which charged the Federal Government to fix the nation’s security challenges or throw in the towel, said the police and the military should be tasked to wake up to their responsibilities before criminals turned the country into another Afghanistan.
