Aisha Yesufu, one of the most prominent Activists in Nigeria, has stated that President Muhammadu Buhari’s words when reacting to the insecurity situation ravaging the country under his watch, mean absolutely nothing, and should not be taken seriously, Page 36 learnt.
When asked on Channels Television’s ‘Politics Today’, on Friday, what she thinks of the President’s assurance to Nigerians about efforts being made to rescue all those who have been abducted in recent times, she said: “What I make of the statement is absolutely nothing.
“We are used to a President whose words mean nothing. He says one thing, and another thing happens.”
Speaking of the abduction of the reported 317 female Students at the Jangebe Government Girls Secondary School, GGSS, in Zamfara State, in the early hours of Friday, Aisha Yesufu said that the President’s body language has been an enabler to the perpetrators.
Her words: “The body language of President Muhammadu Buhari enables the terrorists. They know that we have an ineffective President and Commander-in-Chief, we have an incompetent one, a clueless one, who does not even bother about what is happening in the country.
“Yesterday we buried seven Military Officers, the best that we have, the nation was in mourning, and the President was a few minutes away from where they were, and the President did not even turn up, what does that signify? It Is high time we begin to make serious demands on the President.
“This is such a sad moment especially, with the fact that our government has not learnt anything, in spite of almost seven years of advocacy that we have been calling on the government to do the right thing, and to do the needful to ensure that the citizens are protected.
“Before the Chibok Girl’s abduction, there was actually the Guniyadi killings, where 29 boys were slaughtered in their Schools.”
“It is not in our place to give the way forward. His (the President’s) salaries are being paid for it, his needs are being taken care of. He was voted to give the way forward.”
