Insecurity: President Buhari's body language emboldens terrorists- Aisha Yesufu - 4 months ago
The co-convener of the Bring Back Our Girls group, Aisha Yesufu, appeared on Channels TV on Friday night, February 26 where she criticized President Buhari over his handling of the deplorable state of insecurity in the country.
According to Ms. Yesufu. President Buhari's body language has continued to embolden the terrorists.
“We are used to a president whose words mean nothing. He says one thing, and another thing happens,” she added.
Since one of the major abductions in the country happened in 2014 – (the abduction of over 200 schoolgirls in Chibok, Borno State), Yesufu has been at the forefront of the calls made to the Federal Government to ensure the release of all abductees as well as to curb the rate of insecurity in the country.
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 didn’t 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’ve 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”.
When asked to speak on the way forward to tackle insecurity, Ms. Yesufu responded
“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.''
