MURIC Director, Akintola Blames Saraki-Led Senate For Insecurity In Nigeria
Director of Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), Prof Ishaq Akintola has blamed the former Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki for causing the current security challenges in the country.
Akintola stated that the ex-Senator is among other agitators and bad losers for instigating the insecurity under Muhammadu Buhari-administration.
In a press release submitted on Thursday, MURIC accused bad losers of inciting citizens against Federal Government.
Making an example of the Saraki-led senate, Akintola said anarchists are making deliberate attempts to sabotage the government’s efforts on curbing insecurity.
The Islamic cleric maintained that Saraki-led Senate on April 6, 2018, rejected President Buhari’s request for $1 billion for the purchase of arms.
Bad losers among the politicians are hell-bent on ensuring that the present administration fails. There are also anarchists whose main objective is to sabotage security facilities.
It is unfortunate that many Nigerians are not prepared to say the truth concerning who is actually responsible for the current spate of killings, kidnappings, banditry and insurgency.
According to Akintola, the decision was a “deliberate attempt” to aggravate the government’s determination to secure the nation.
Nigerians would have witnessed a drastic improvement in the security situation had that request been granted. But the unpatriotic elements in the Senate ensured that the request was blocked. The same politicians turned round to blame Buhari for the worsening security situation.
The statement stressed that the government’s efforts were sabotaged during the #EndSARS protests in October 2020.
It said the release of prisoners, the burning of police stations and the looting of police armoury were meant to cause havoc.
Some Nigerians know exactly who to blame but fear will not allow them to speak up. However, MURIC has a duty to say it as it is no matter whose ox is gored. Certain conscienceless elements are manipulating information by spreading fake news in order to incite Nigerians against the Federal Government.
Bad losers among the politicians are also hell bent on ensuring that the present administration fails in all aspects of governance.
Akintola also said the recent attacks on Imo police stations confirm the determination of anarchists to prolong insecurity in the country.
This is not about defending Buhari. It is the reality. It is the truth and MURIC is not afraid of speaking truth to anarchists. How then can we, in good conscience, blame FG or Buhari for the rising wave of insecurity when we are the same people destroying security facilities and setting criminals free? It is therefore bad losers and anarchists who must be blamed for our worsening security situation. The panacea lies in the good citizens of this country coming together to expose enemies of peace. Nobody should think that another leader has the magic wand.
On the assault on Imo State Police Command headquarters, Akintola said it was to ensure security challenges persist, saying the attack confirmed “the diabolical objectives of the anarchists”.
The MURIC director urged citizens to expose enemies of peace, adding that nobody should think that another leader has the magic wand.
