‘Service Chiefs Should Flush Out Bandits’
By Tajudeen Adebanjo
POLITICS DIGEST – A security expert, Abayomi Mumuni, has urged the service chiefs to eliminate all bandits wreaking havoc in some parts of the country.
Mumuni said the activities of criminal elements are eroding the successes recorded by President Muhammadu Buhari.
He spoke in Surulere, Lagos after revalidating his All Progressives Congress (APC) membership card at Ward F2, Unit 16.
“No doubt, the state of insecurity in the country is alarming yet it was inherited from the previous government. Despite that, President Buhari has recorded successes in the fight against insurgents especially the Boko Haram, but the banditry is messing up the whole campaigns. All he needs to do now is to gather his recently appointed service chiefs, go back to the drawing board and flush out the criminal elements,” he said.
According to him, President Buhari has done well, adding that more still needs to be done.
He said: “We can see the changes he brought into the economy, which was initially in shambles. He has really tried his best even though he has his lapses and many Nigerians aren’t seeing the good developments but are focused only on the few lapses. Yet, the party (APC) is blessed with personalities who have the love of the country at heart, who can continue from where the President and his cabinet will stop in 2023.
“The problem is that President himself didn’t have people around him that will exhibit the substance of what he has been doing since assumption of office in 2015, except when they are being antagonised by the main opposition party. As I said, President Buhari can still do more, but many Nigerians do not have information about the good things Mr President has done. Nigerians are seeing more of the challenges and reform effects, especially the insecurity and high cost of living but they’re not seeing improvement in other sectors.”
