The Northern Elders who reacted to the Presidency’s assertion that the kidnap of the district head of Daura, Buhari’s hometown in Katsina State, shows the security agencies were not giving any town preferential treatment, has stated that insecurity in the north is worse under Buhari. Chairman of the Northern Elders Forum, Prof Ango Abdullahi, who revealed that insecurity in the north is worse under Buhari than when Goodluck Jonathan was leading the country, added that the President is not doing enough to salvage the situation.
The NEF leader urged the Presidency to focus on securing lives and property in the country, told Punch’s correspondent; “I don’t understand what the reaction from the Presidency is expected to convey to the public. They (Presidency) should be concerned that the security failures are everywhere, including the hometown of the President. Obviously there is more insecurity in the North today than during Jonathan’s leadership.”
