SARAKI’S CHIEF OF STAFF, BABA-AHMED ATTACKS THE GOVERNMENT OF PRESIDENT MUHAMMADU BUHARI


Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, the Chief of Staff to the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, has attacked the government of President Muhammadu Buhari as lacking the capacity to end the spate of killings by suspected Fulani herdsmen in parts of the country.

Baba-Ahmed was the convener of the Extraordinary Summit of Leaders and Elders of Nigeria in Abuja yesterday.

The summit also had the presence of former President Olusegun Obasanjo and other top dignitaries.

Baba Ahmed said that what necessitated the summit was that things had actually fallen apart, requiring the intervention of elders.

In his welcome and keynote address, Baba-Ahmed, who recently dumped the All Progressives Congress, APC, charged Buhari to show firmer and decisive leadership in dealing with the alarming scale of killings and other violent claims.

He said, “The nation is facing unprecedented spate of violence from familiar sources as well as many new fronts, with vast tracts of the nation completely at the mercy of marauding killers, intercommunal conflicts, violent crimes, kidnapping and violent urban gangs.

“The nation’s entire security and law and order assets appear incapable of arresting the drift towards pervasive and widespread conflicts and violent crimes which make every citizen a potential victim. Fear and uncertainty are fueling narratives that create convenient enemies and many communities are in danger of coming to terms with permanent state of insecurity.

“The failure of government to arrest and successfully prosecute killers is creating the impression of a weak state in which killers and criminals operate almost at will.”
