President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, while reacting to the Saturday Massacre in Barkin Ladi Local Government Area in Plateau state  by Fulani herdsmen said killings have given the impression that the country is not safe. Saraki, therefore urged President Muhammadu Buhari to “mandate the security chiefs to put forward an immediate short-term and quick-response measure which will restore confidence in the system and demonstrate to the criminals behind these killings the capacity of government to tackle the issue.”

This was said in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, in Abuja on Sunday night.

Well, Nigerians took to social media to react to Saraki’s statement, saying it was out of line for the number three citizen of Nigeria to say the country isn’t safe.

  • The statement of the Senate President is 100% correct. The country is not safe. The security architecture has been compromised and until the president stops the blame game, take up responsibility and get cracking, I see him as an accomplice to this ethnic cleansing agenda.
