Insecurity: Unrepentant Tinubu Wants Nigerians To Endure Buhari’s Failure



Bola Tinubu ,the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), is positive that Nigeria will overcome its current security challenges.

While speaking during the Special Ramadan Prayer Tafsir which held in Sunday at his Lagos House in Marina, Tinubu stated that Nigerians will feel safe under President Muhammadu Buhari’s government.

President Buhari had sailed to power in 2015 on his three cardinal promises which are tackling insecurity, fixing the economy and addressing power.

Insecurity seems to have worsened under the current APC government six years after defeating the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and ending its 16-year rule on Nigeria.

But Tinubu feels strongly that things will get better in the long run.

“We know when it started but we don’t want to give excuses. This government will perform, Nigerians will feel safe and be happy,” he said.

“There is the twist and tone in democracy. We just have to build, tolerate each other and express love and harmony.”

The APC National Leader said the Commander-in-Chief would not wish Nigerians to be slaughtered, kidnapped, or killed.

While noting that the security issue has its own viewpoint, Tinubu warned against those politicising insecurity.

He described that APC knows when the security challenges started, but it will however not give excuses.

Nigeria has been experiencing a series of security threats ranging from terrorism, banditry, militancy, cultism among others in several parts of the country.

The country has been combatting terrorism for more than a decade which has killed 36,000 people and displaced hundreds of thousands in the northeast.

The Islamic State of West African Province (ISWAP) split from the jihadist group Boko Haram in 2016 and has since become a dominant threat in Nigeria, attacking troops and bases while killing and kidnapping passengers at bogus checkpoints.

On March 1, A United Nations humanitarian compound in the town of Dikwa was burnt down after dislodging troops, killing six civilians by the jihadist fighters.

Nigeria’s jihadist violence has spread to neighbouring Chad, Cameroon and Niger, urging a regional military union to fight the insurgents.
