A Nigerian professor and former executive secretary of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) Usman Yusuf says the President Buhari administration is of no good to the people if their security cannot be guaranteed.
Mr. Yusuf was a guest on ARISE News and said the Nigerian leader must address the citizens on the growing insecurity across the country.
He was reacting to the recent slaughtering of 43 farmers in Zabarmari, Borno state by Boko Haram terrorists.
“When we speak it’s not that we are against the government, we brought this government in and it must do what we ask it to do. I fit does not protect us then it’s no good to us.
“I call on every Nigerian to speak up and we must hold our government responsible and that’s what democracy is, the participation of citizens, not this circus you see in the National Assembly.
“The President must talk to us, we have been mountains of mortalities and deaths in the north, we’ve heard little or next to nothing from our President, a president we elected and put in the villa to protect us.
“He got in Katsina 1.2 million votes, what do we have to show in Katsina. A third of Katsina is under bandits and the capital city is filled up as an IDP,” he said.
