The House of Representatives has invited President Muhammadu Buhari to the green chamber to come and explain the reasons for the increased killings in Nigeria within 2 days.
The lower legislative chamber at its sitting yesterday, accused Buhari of failing to safeguard the lives and properties of Nigerians.
Adopting the motion, which was titled: ‘Resurgence of the Incessant and Annual Massacre of Innocent Nigerians Across the Country by Alleged Bandits and Killer Herdsmen, the Gradual Occupation of Affected Communities by these Attackers and the Lack of Adequate Rehabilitation and Relief Materials’’, the lawmakers voiced out that Buhari must come to offer concrete explanation to the people he is leading.
Their words, “The inability of the of the Armed Forces under his watch to stop the recurring death of scores of innocent Nigerians annually from systemic attacks by killer herdsmen and alleged bandits, and the gradual occupation of the affected communities by these herdsmen despite countless assurances and statements by him, promising to stop these attacks.”
“The inability of NEMA under his watch to immediately provide relief materials and rehabilitation of affected communities in line with their statutory mandate, in spite of the N10bn he announced had been provided in this regard and what immediate intervention his administration intends to provide to affected communities and how soon.
“he and his administration are incapable of permanently curtailing the incessant killing of innocent Nigerians by killer herdsmen and the occupation of their land, and have failed in their primary, constitutional responsibility of ensuring the security and welfare of the citizens of Nigeria.”
