Following the recent insecurity tha has enveloped the country Gov. Bala Mohammed of Bauchi states declared Thursday in Abuja ha he nation’s security architecture has completely collapsed
Governor Mohammed, who spoke to journalists after he National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) insisted that President Muhammadu Buhari must do urgently to stem the tide and save Nigeria from an imminent collapse
The Bauchi state Governor described his party, the PDP, as the only party that is organized to take Nigeria out of its current situation
“You can see we just ended the NEC, there is no any rancour, there is no any conflict and you can see the array of human capital here. And if we go back a little further, you will see how the PDP was able to conduct it’s recruitment process and we have been able to deliver the dividend of democracy.
“You have just heard that the NNPC said that they will not be able to give money, I don’t know the amount of chaos that would cause, because most of the states are depending on federation account. Because of cluelessness and lack of capacity to manage the economy, we have found ourselves on this; there is even a blame game between the members of the party within the APC.
“So, I think we are not going to be arrogant. We knew the mistake we committed before and we have taken steps to correct them. We are presenting to Nigerians the better frame work, better platform for them to really actualise their aspirations.
“The time now is to come together. We need to unify the country. There is a lot of disparaging forces, the insecurity is too much, the mismanagement of the economy is too much and if poverty is added to it, I don’t know what will become of Nigeria.
On what he expects President Buhari do now to stem the tide of insecurity, the former Minister of the Federal Capital Territiry (FCT) stated, “The federal security architecture has failed. I have said it before, he has to work with the governors, he has to work with the local government Chairmen, he has to work with the traditional institutions, he has to work with the civil society. We need information. We are just living in darkness, it appears that nobody is in charge and somebody has to be in charge and we have to come together to help the federal government discharge it’s exclusive responsibility of providing safety and security.”
