A Civil Society Organization, Advocacy for Advancement of Peace &Harmony in Africa Initiative ( ADAPHAI) has described the ongoing fight against insurgency in Nigeria as a battle between confused government and focused enemies.
Commending soldiers and officers on the front line for exhibiting necessary patriotic zeal in the fight against insurgency, the group slammed the Muhammadu-buhari led administration for alleged indecision and lack of vision, adding that the body language of the President and his handlers did not suggest genuine readiness to fight terrorism and banditry.
ADAPHAI made these known in a statement issued on Friday morning titled: “Nigeria under siege of criminals: An urgent call for action”, and signed by it’s National Coordinator, Comrade Sulaimon Suberu, the copy which was made available to newsmen.
According to the statement, while soldiers and officers alike at the battle field were showing commitment with little or no corresponding incentives for motivation, the Federal Government and Military authorities were paying leap service to the fight against insurgency.
It further said that the ruling APC has not shown Nigerians that it has solution to the menace of insecurity ravaging the entire country going by the pattern of it’s response in the last seven years and some months.
The group explained that the ‘technical defeat’ the government claimed over Boko Haram militants has exposed the inherent deception and mental laziness on the part of government officials.
According to the statement, the two consecutive attacks on the military in the last few days in Abuja confirmed that government at the centre is confused while insurgents are focused on their goal of overrunning the country.
The statement reads in part:” The systemic rise in the activities of terrorists and bandits across Nigeria, resulting to deaths of thousands of Nigerians and wanton destruction of property and public facility, despite huge budgetary allocations to Defence is a pointer to the fact that this government is confused and practically helpless.
“It is regrettably annoying that despite all the promises made by Buhari and APC’s leaders in their quest to take over power in 2015, this government has terribly performed below expectations of Nigerians, making life more vulnerable for every citizen more than ever before.
“The present siege on Nigeria has further shown that Buhari and his acolytes, instead of understudying the tenets and scope of asymmetric war of Boko Haram insurgency and map out unique strategies of tackling it headlong prior to assumption of office in 2015 were more concerned about power without alacrity for service delivery.
“While the so-called rag tag insurgents were making frantic efforts to achieve their satanic goal of taking over Nigeria by forming military alliances with foreign terrorists in the Sahel and along the Islamic maghrib, Nigeria’s government under Buhari was sleeping like a baby as if nothing was happening.
“Instead of addressing the issue of porous borders across Nigeria, especially in the Northern zones, the government was making needless and fruitless policies without recourse to critical reasoning.
“Now, Nigeria is presently at the crossroads, the President whether he likes it or not must protect the corporate entity of Nigeria by all possible means, or else, his name will go down in the history book as weakest and the most clueless President ever in the history of Nigeria”.
The group however called on part Presidents and heads of state, as well as eminent Nigerians home and abroad to urgently come to the rescue of the country before it is too late, saying any major crisis in Nigeria will have a devastating effect on the entire Africa.
