While addressing newsmen in Abuja on Friday, Secondus questioned the existence of a government in the country, stating that Buhari’s incompetence in the handling of governance is taking a huge toll on the nation.
The PDP chair noted that the security situation in the country has become a continued source of concern and fear among prominent Nigerians, including clerics and monarchs. He said:
“While the Presidency continues to argue that there exists government in our country today, what obtains in reality is different,” he said.
“The level of bloodletting occasioned by the barrage of criminalities across the country can only be happening in a country without government.
“Things got even worse as the remaining goodwill of the people on this government vanished after it arm-twisted the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), into tampering with the will of the people in the February 23 Presidential and National Assembly Elections.
“There is no evidence of the presence of government in this country as crimes of all kinds are being committed all over the country and Nigerians have never lived in such great fear and trembling for their lives.
“From Kaduna to Zamfara, Benue to Taraba, Plateau, Lagos to Enugu etc., bloodletting is continuing unabated. Even the President’s home state of Katsina has lost about eight local government areas to bandits, not to talk of the North East.
“Everyone holding public office must know that one day, they will be held accountable for their actions.”
Secondus condemned the incessant killings in Kaduna State, where a British humanitarian aid worker, Faye Mooney and others were shot dead by gunmen last week.
He blamed the heightened insecurity in Kaduna on what he described as “provocative leadership” existing in the state and which he said, is indirectly being encouraged by the Federal Government.
“The situation has deteriorated to the extent that this country can no longer protect the lives of international aid workers who are here to help us clear our mess.
“The senseless continuous bloodletting in Kaduna state should be blamed on the type of provocative leadership existing in that state and indirectly encouraged by the federal government.
“The ‘body bag’ governor in the state does not seem to know how to engender peace among the people, his actions and utterances facilitate, instead of ameliorating the ill feelings among the people,” Secondus said
