President Muhammadu Buahri’s former lawyer before he (Buhari) won the 2015 election, Chief Mike Ahamba, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN, says the president has failed as a leader.
Ahamba who is President Buhari’s close associate and his lawyer during his numerous attempts at the presidency before he eventually won in 2015, told the Sunnewonline in an interview that nobody can count himself safe in this country anymore.
According to the elder statesman, it was quite unfortunate that after accusing former President Goodluck Jonathan of being weak in 2015, Buhari himself has failed to meet the expectations of Nigerians.
“I want to say this with all sincerity that the country has been overtaken by the state of insecurity,” he told Sun.
“There is no safety anywhere and I believe that nobody can count himself as safe unless those who may have state apparatus with which they are protecting themselves.
“Ordinary citizens are no longer safe. When you cannot drive safely from Abuja to Kaduna, you can’t drive safely from Port Harcourt to Warri; you can’t drive safely from Enugu to Makurdi.
“Where do you go? The situation is very alarming and anybody who says that he is not alarmed by what is happening should tell the nation the reason for that, and that he can’t be affected by what is happening.
“The insecurity situation is so bad that nobody knows the next victim. It is very unfortunate and the Federal Government should do something to arrest the situation before it is too late.
“One of the major campaign promises of President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015 was to handle security having accused ex-President Goodluck Jonathan of being ‘weak’ in tackling the Boko Haram menace. Four years after, don’t you think that Buhari has lost grip of the situation?”
