Members of the Coalition of the Northern Groups have asked the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) to return Nigeria to the era of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan when the country experienced a minimal level of insecurity.
The CNG’s Director of Strategic Communications, Ismail Musa, made the call while featuring on Vanguard Live on Wednesday.
This group also lamented the alarming rate of killings, kidnappings, and general insecurity across the country and berated Buhari over his handling of insecurity in the country.
“What we are begging them for now is, you know human life is very important; in fact, it’s very key.
“If you can do something, in fact, if you can take us back to the insecurity you met on board that will be tolerable to a large extent to say well he has taken us back to (former President Goodluck) Jonathan’s standard we are crying about. I mean the killings at that time; the statistics are there to speak for themselves.
“So really as far as I am concerned, it’s unfortunate we have these kinds of people ruling us by this time,” Musa was quoted as saying by Sahara Reporters.
Some weeks ago, concerned Nigerians staged a protest against rising insecurity in the North and other parts of the country, in Abuja.
For their campaign, the protesters used the hashtags: #SaveTheNorth; #NorthernLivesMatter; #NorthIsBleeding; #SecureOurLives; #EnoughIsEniugh; and #NoMoreBloodShed.
