The pan Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere, has charged President Muhammadu Buhari to match his words with action on the insecurity challenges in the country.
Afenifere disclosed this in a statement issued by its national publicity secretary, Comrade Jare Ajayi, on Wednesday.
“The information and assurance that emanated from President Buhari’s message to Nigerians to mark this year’s Eid-el-fitri celebration “flies against the reality on ground,” the statement said.
While agreeing with the president that the fight against terrorists in the country “has been long and hard,” Afenifere maintained that the government has not succeeded in convincing most Nigerians that the ‘final victory is within sight” as claimed by the president through his spokesman, Garba Shehu.
“It is important to let the president know the reality on ground because the specters coming from Aso Rock often indicate a distance between those in government and the people they govern. It is very strange indeed that Mr. President could inform Nigerians that the ‘final embers (of insecurity) are now fading.”
