Buhari absent from duty despite nationwide killings – Opposition lawmakers

The minority caucus of the National Assembly on Tuesday flayed what it called the “ineptitude and inability” of the APC-led federal government to save the country from drifting into anarchy.

The caucus, after a closed-door emergency meeting at the National Assembly, declared President Muhammadu Buhari absent from duty despite the killings and kidnappings across the country.

It said it was unfortunate that rather than solve the security problems met on ground as promised, the APC administration had since 2015 broadened it to the extent that every section of the country was now beset with one security challenge or the other.

The caucus leader and Senate Minority Leader, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, who briefed newsmen after the meeting, said the caucus, at appropriate time, would utilize all constitutional methods and measures to do the needful to save the country from collapse.

“We, therefore as a caucus, suggest that immediate steps should be taken by governments at all levels to set up proper security infrastructure whether in the mode of state police and other constitutional reforms to arrest the drift of the nation,” he said.

He urged Buhari to take charge of his government and take the country out of the current security situation.

Abaribe also urged Nigerians not lose hope in the country, but do everything possible to get rid of APC government in the 2023 general elections.
