Emmanuel Waye, the National Publicity Secretary of Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF), says he has lost faith in the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari to tackle insecurity in the North.
Waye who featured as a guest on Channels Television programme, Politics Today on Wednesday, said members of the forum are depressed over the level of insecurity in its region.
“We are very very depressed. We are very sad in the ACF. Nobody is happy because of what has been happening to our people,” he said.
“How can I have faith in someone who presides over this kind of thing? I had faith in him when I followed him as a reporter and he chased away some foreigners who were coming to kill us.
“When he was coming to be President, I had faith in him. I witnessed how successful this man was in chasing enemies out of our country in 1983. But now, 300 people kidnapped in his home state.”
The ACF Spokesperson added that no northerner is happy with the spate of killings and attacks in the region.
He said fear rules the Northern region now so much that he like many others cannot go to their villages anymore.
“I can’t go to my home state of Taraba. The whole place is in chaos, they are killing people every day. That one is not publicised because there is no oil in Taraba,” he said.
“All over the north, there is insecurity. I have never felt unsafe like I feel now. What can I say? You have seen what is happening to our people.”
