President Muhammadu Buhari should either deal with bandits in the country or leave Aso Rock for competent people to do the job.
This is according to Salihu Tanko-Yakasai who is a media aide to Buhari ally and Kano governor Abdullahi Ganduje.
Tanko-Yakasai spoke on Friday while reacting to the abduction of students from the Government Girls Secondary School, Jangebe in Talata Mafara local government area of Zamfara State.
According to him, the fact that the development comes about a week after some schoolboys were also abducted by bandits in Kagara, Niger State, showed the government has failed in carrying out its primary responsibility.
He said the All Progressives Congress (APC) led government has failed Nigerians, noting that it cannot continue to lament when tragedy occurs without taking any action to prevent a repeat.
“Clearly, we as APC government, at all levels, have failed Nigerians in the number one duty we were elected to do which is to secure lives and properties,” Tanko-Yakasai tweeted.
“Not a single day goes by without some sort of insecurity in this land. This is a shame! Deal with terrorists decisively or resign.
“Each time another tragedy happens, we lament, condemn, create hashtag. The government pretends to do something, no concrete steps to prevent reoccurrence, and then we repeat the process. To what end? Where are those saddled with the responsibility?
“Just last week, it was #freekagaraboys. Today, we have a new hashtag #RescueJangebeGirls. Who knows what hashtag we will come up with tomorrow…perhaps one for ourselves when we get caught up in one of these daring attacks.
“This is sad and heartbreaking; I feel helpless and hopeless,” he said.
The governor’s aide was earlier suspended by Ganduje after his remark about Buhari during the #EndSARS protest but was reinstated weeks after.
