The Senate Minority Leader, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, says the marching orders President Muhammadu Buhari gives on insecurity are empty as no one takes him seriously.
In an interview on Channels Television, he alleged that handling of the nation’s security is very poor.

- Buhari to Service Chiefs: Fish out bandits, their sponsors
Before his medical trip to the UK, Buhari had ordered the service chiefs to fish out bandits and their sponsors.
But Abaribe said such orders mean nothing, even to the service chiefs.
“Why would we take him (President Muhammadu Buhari) seriously? Just the day after he had said we would no longer accept all these kidnappings, this would be the last, they kidnapped again,” he said.
“And those people are still there; those innocent Nigerians are still in captivity up till now. He always makes a statement. Every time these things happen, nothing happens. So it is obvious nobody takes him seriously with that. Even the military chiefs, I don’t think they bother themselves.
“This is about the umpteenth time that we are hearing the President giving a marching order. Throughout the Buratai time as the Chief of Army Staff, he was always giving marching orders so he has given just another one.”
