Northern Group Dismisses Buhari’s Government as Failure
The Coalition of Northern Groups in Katsina State on Saturday dismissed the government of President Muhammadu Buhari as a failure, saying the administration could not protect the lives and property of the citizens of the state and the country in general.
This was stated in a communiqué co-signed by the group’s Katina State chapter chairman and secretary, Jamiu Charanchi, and Abubakar Kabir respectively after a roundtable held on Saturday in Katsina to discuss renewed banditry attacks, killings, and kidnappings in the state.
The communiqué said, “The government’s attempts to reassert public confidence with repeated rhetoric of being on top of the situation seem to be worsening as killings and kidnapping for ransom have become a daily occurrence in most parts of the state.
“The general consensus is that by any standard of judgment, the administration of President Buhari has failed the nation and in particular Katsina State in the vital area of improving the citizens’ lives and property.”
The group presented its demands to include: “An immediate and comprehensive improvement of security in the state.
“We demand a review of the entire national security architecture and the Katsina State Security Committee in order to inject higher levels of competence, integrity, and accountability.
“We demand the promulgation of legislation to compel the review of the salary and general incentive packages of all men of the security services.”
It also called for the restructuring of the country’s security architecture, noting that continuous banditry attacks, insurgency and kidnapping had left many people dead and displaced from their homes.
