How Buhari Confirmed On National TV That Nigeria Is A Failed State—Nnamdi Kanu

Image
This followed his reaction to President Muhammadu Buhari's interview with Arise TV on Thursday, in which he said each of the 36 governors should find a way to end the rampant invasion by herdmen across the country. According to Buhari, he alone cannot do everything which was why he called on governors to find ways to solve the problem of insecurity in their respective day.  But Kanu asserted that the President has failed by shifting responsibility to the state governors. He further stated that the decision of the federal government has confirmed the controversial Eastern Security Network (ESN), as an agency established for the self-defence of the people of the South east. "As the mask masquerading as Buhari shifts responsibility of stopping terrorist herdsmen to Governors, it confirms our assertions that Nigeria has become a failed sate. It also validates #ESN as a self-defense force to protect our people." he said.

I Will Teach Unknown Gunmen What I Learnt During Civil War - Buhari

Image
President Muhammadu Buhari says he will teach unknown gunmen destroying state infrastructure what he learnt during the civil war. I receive daily security reports on the attacks on critical national infrastructure, and it is very clear that those behind them want this administration to fail. Whoever wants the destruction of the system will soon have the shock of their lives. We’ve given them enough time. In the area of security, we have changed the Service Chiefs and the Inspector-General, and we are demanding that they rise fully to the challenges confronting us. There must be zero tolerance for all those those bent on destroying our country by promoting crime and insurrection! Many of those misbehaving today are too young to be aware of the destruction and loss of lives that occurred during the Nigerian Civil War. Those of us in the fields for 30 months, who went through the war, will treat them in the language they understand.
