Insecurity in the North far worse under Buhari than it was under Jonathan— Northern elders


The Chairman of the Northern Elders Forum, Prof Ango Abdullahi, has said that the Northern region is far more insecured than what it was before the Buhari-led administration came into office in May 2015.

Ango said this while reacting to the Presidency’s assertion that the kidnap of the district head of Daura, Buhari’s hometown in Katsina State, had shown the security agencies were not giving any town preferential treatment.

Ango said the current security issues in the North was worse than when Goodluck Jonathan was leading the country.

“I don’t understand what the reaction from the Presidency is expected to convey to the public. They (Presidency) should be concerned that the security failures are everywhere, including the hometown  of the President. Obviously there is more insecurity in the North today than during Jonathan’s leadership.” he told Punch
