Buhari’s Body Language Fuels Banditry, Terrorism – Aisha Yesufu

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Popular activist, Aisha Yesufu, says that the “body language” of President Muhammadu Buhari is making banditry and terrorism increased in the country.

Yesufu  disclosed this when she featured on popular television show, ‘Politics Today’ on Channels Television as she reacted to the abduction of over 300 schoolgirls from Jangebe in Zamfara State by  unknown gunmen suspected to be bandits.

Yesufu, who is a co-convener of the #BringBackOurGirls  movement frowned at the increase in abductions in the country saying that it is worrisome that a recurrence of large scale abduction could happen under the watch of Buhari.

She said: “At the #BringBackOurGirls movement, this is for us a sad moment especially because our government has not done anything in spite of almost seven years of advocacy that we’ve been calling on government to do the right thing to ensure citizens and students are protected.

“Students are being taken away. Is it because they are Nigerians? Is it because they are poor? Why are they left on their own for terrorists to take them at will?”

Although, President Buhari had  stated on Thursday that his administration will not negotiate but deal decisively with terrorists and bandits in the country. However, Yesufu stated that Buhari’s words were just rhetoric.

She said: “We are used to a president whose words mean nothing. He says one thing and the opposite happens. Part of the things we should be demanding as Nigerians is that the president should come out and tell us what is going.

“He was voted to bring the way forward, the salaries are paid, his bills are being taken care of. When the president first came in, they talk about the body language. What is the body language of the president today?

“The body language of the Muhammadu Buhari enables the terrorists, they know that we have an ineffective president as commander-in-chief, we have an incompetent one, we have a clueless one who does not even bother about what is happening in the country.”

Yesufu added that localized policing was the option and she urged states to come up with their own security outfits
