Immediate past governor of Ekiti state, AyonFayose has reacted to recent Daily Trust reeport, that some Nigerians residing in Katsina State have fled to neighbouring Niger Republic to escape persistent attacks by kidnappers and bandits.
According to the publication, following heightened activities of kidnappers and armed bandits in the state, some residents have evacuated their family members, to Niger Republic’s towns of Maradi and Dan Issa.
The fleeing residents, mostly from Jibia Local Government Area, a community sitting on the border between Nigeria and Niger Republic, were said to be fed up of falling victims or being forced to pay large sums of money to secure the release of kidnapped family members.
It will be recalled that Governor of the state, Aminu Masari, had raised an alarm, late 2018 that the state was under the siege of kidnappers.
According to Fayose, a President who cannot protect his own people, can also not protect people from other states.
Sharing a photo of the headline via his Twitter handle, Fayose said Buhari should “go and rest”, because he has no clue to anything.
In his words:
Can a president who cannot protect his own kinsmen protect people from other States?
President Buhari is tired, he doesn’t have clue to anything, he should go and rest.
Residents of Katsina, the home State of our President are now running to Niger Republic because of insecurity. Can a president who cannot protect his own kinsmen protect people from other States?
