Former Plateau Lawmaker Tackles Buhari, Alleges MarginalizationFeatured, Latest News Monday, September 7th, 2015
From Agabus Pwanagba, Jos – Worried by endless massacre in the State, a former member of the House of Representatives, in Plateau State, Hon. Bitrus Kaze has accused President Mohammadu Buhari and the APC-led Federal Government of bias in the fight against insecurity in the country, urging the President to stick to his inaugural pledge of commitment to all Nigerians.
The former Federal Lawmaker in a media release made available to journalists Monday noted that the APC controlled Federal Government has carried on with the fight against insecurity as if some sections of the country mattered more than others.
“While taking over the reins of power, President Muhammadu Buhari relocated the military command centre to Maiduguri where it will remain until Boko Haram is completely subdued.
“Also, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has of recent been traversing Borno State and other parts of the North East, the birthplace and operational base of the Boko Haram insurgents. But most regrettably, the Federal Government has completely turned a blind eye to the perpetual killings by ‘unknown herdsmen’ on the Plateau.”
“Since the APC took over power in May this year, an average of ten lives comprising mostly innocent women and children, have been wasted on a daily basis in Plateau State particularly in Riyom, Barkin Ladi and Bokkos LGAs.”
“Beginning with the 2016 appropriations, the APC-led federal government plans to spend at least N100 billion annually on a ten-year amnesty programme targeted at the Boko Haram terrorists notwithstanding that they have consistently rejected any amnesty offer” Hon. Kaze indicated.
