Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to honour his oath of office on combating the insecurity ravaging the Northern part of the country.
Emmanuel Yawe, ACF National Publicity Secretary, made the call in a statement on Tuesday, lamenting the worsening state of insecurity in the country.
Yawe urged the President to do the needful in arresting the rising insecurity before it is too late.
“Even as the Minister was claiming falsely, whether in ignorance or deliberate, victory over bandits, 12 Police Superintendents on official duty from Zamfara to Kano were overpowered by superior tactics and force while driving in a convoy and abducted with a heavy ransom demand on each policeman’s family,” the statement read.
“Apart from that, the bandits mounted four roadblocks on Kaduna- Abuja road whom the police have claimed severally that they have liberated from bandits.
“We feel there is no need to call on President Buhari to live up to his oath of office. He knows more than anybody else the implications of swearing on the Quran and refusing to honour your oath to the Almighty.
“We are only for the umpteenth time conveying the anger and frustrations of many Northerners to him so that he will do the needful and speedily too. It is getting too late.”
