ABUJADr. Iyorchia Ayu, National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has accused President Mu­hammadu Buhari of being comfortable with the state of insecurity in the country, insisting that the president’s statement that “state police is not an option”, suggests that the situation may not be about to change.

Dr. Ayu also criticised the president for pushing the blame for the incessant killing of farmers by terror­ists on locals along grazing routes.

These statements were contained in a brief re­sponse by Dr. Ayu to Pres­ident Buhari’s interview on Channels Television on Wednesday evening.

A statement from Dr. Ayu’s Media Office quoted the PDP national chairman as declaring that “it appears the continued killings in some localities of Nigeria, particularly in the North, and more specifically in President Buhari’s home state of Katsina, may not matter to him” with his statement that state police is not an option.

The full statement which Dr. Ayu personally signed, read: “Watching President Muhammadu Buhari this evening on Channels TV during an interview ses­sion was a gratuitous waste of time because there was nothing new coming from the president.

“As has been said by many before now, to expect anything new from our pres­ident would be a misplaced and unfortunate expecta­tion.

“From the economy, to in­security, killing of innocent farmers by terrorists (which some erroneously term farmer/herder clashes) and other sundry issues, Presi­dent Buhari honoured his calling as a president who has nothing new to offer.

“He again repeated the impotent argument regard­ing killing of farmers by ter­rorists, reminding Nigerians of grazing routes.

“Well, what the president failed to reference is that the herders plying the grazing routes before, neither car­ried AK47s, nor did they en­gage in raping of women and despoliation of the assets of those along the routes.

“Mr. President’s position of saying the locals should be asked what went wrong, flies in the face of reason and contemporary realities.

“Tied to that but not lim­ited in scope is the issue of insecurity and a reorgani­sation of the Nigeria Police to accommodate present, peculiar, environmental and social challenges.

“In President Buhari’s view, state police is not an option. Yet, it appears the continued killings in some localities of Nigeria, particu­larly in the North, and more specifically in his home state of Katsina, may not matter, hence, the need to have a se­curity system that feeds on local intelligence and nuanc­es, which the federal police cannot adequately provide, is not an option to our pres­ident.

“To him, it appears that continuing the same process while expecting a different output and outcome is the best way to go.

“We ask, is he comfort­able with the killings in the land while the status quo persists?

“Nigerians should remind President Buhari that people evolve and societies evolve.

“Therefore, being trapped in a time capsule of the past about state police is not an option Nigerians are willing to accept from him.

“On the economic front, nations of the world who enjoy the benefit of direct foreign investments (DFI) en­sure that their countries are safe for investors to pour in their resources. No amount of propaganda will obviate the realities on ground and which embassies and foreign missions observe.

“Therefore, to ensure that investor confidence is restored, a safe environment must, of necessity, be created.

“Our government is trapped in the mentality of believing its own lies that Nigeria is better today than it was under PDP.

“To those who share this fallacy, we ask: Would they wish for their lives to be like Nigeria under this present regime? The lives of Nigeri­ans today tell the true story.

“The more Buhari prom­ises to lift Nigerians out of poverty, the poorer Nigeri­ans become.

“To further dwell on the entire interview would be to waste valuable time.

“But we implore Nige­rians not to relent because hope is on the way and, like one writer said, hope is better served as breakfast and not dinner, as the APC regime of President Buhari is doing, promising El Dorado in the dying days of its tenure”.
