The convener of the Concerned Nigrians, Deji Adeyanju, on Friday described President Muhammadu Buhari-led government as the worst government in Nigeria.
He condemned the President for praising the military in his Independence Day statement despite the killings and insecurity across the country.
Adeyanju accused Buhari of revealing the sponsors of Boko Haram terrorists, while he claim to know the sponsors of the Indigenous People of Biafra and Yoruba Nation.
The human rights activist added that the president needs prayers for saying his administration is the best since 1999.
Adeyanju stated this in a statement titled, ‘Buhari mocked Nigerians with his Independence Day speech’
It said, “The whole country knows that this is the worst government in the history of our nation.
“It is beyond sad to hear president Buhari commending the military for failure in his Independence Day speech. The North West, North Central and almost the entire country is almost a NO-GO AREA due to widespread insecurity. Terrorist groups control over 10 local government areas in the president’s home state of Katsina and collect taxes from residents openly and unchallenged.
“So many people who were killed by terrorists in Southern Kaduna were buried yesterday. Dora Akunyili’s husband was gunned down recently in the South-East yet the president praises the military for failure.
“The president also said he has discovered sponsors of IPOB and Oduduwa agitators but failed to talk about sponsors of Boko Haram that Dubai revealed recently because they are from his zone.
“The president apparently needs prayers for saying his administration is the best since 1999 and that Nigerians have never had it so good. It is unthinkable that the president of a nation should openly peddle so much falsehood as Buhari has just done.
“For context, cooking gas is N7,200 from N3,000 in 2015. $1 is N575 from N200 in 2015. The list goes on and on of the inflation records of the current administration. Nigeria has fallen completely to terrorist groups. This is a government that kills protesters but negotiate with terrorists.”
