Resign or buckle up now, Bamgbose, CAGG Coordinator tells Buhari
National Coordinator, Concerned Advocates for Good Governance, CAGG, Olusegun Bamgbose has advised President Muhammadu Buhari to resign or buckle up after American soldiers successfully rescued one of their citizens in northern Nigeria last Saturday.
United States Special forces successfully rescued an American, 27-year-old Philip Walton, taken hostage in Nigeria by armed men on October 26.
Bamgbose applauded the outstanding courage displayed by the US Special Operation Forces, in rescuing an American citizen held hostage by armed men.
He commended President Donald Trump for the fit but on the other hand, said he weeps for Buhari because he (Buhari) has consistently failed to live up to expectation as a leader in providing security for an average Nigerian.
Bamgbose, a chieftain of the New Nigerian Peoples Party, NNPP, said, “The Boko Haram slaughter Nigerians at will without any reasonable intervention. Many that are held hostage are either killed or kept in the custody of the insurgents.
“Leah Shuaib and others are still in custody of the insurgents, with slim hope of ever coming back to reunite with their families.
“A leader who can’t guarantee the safety of his subjects should not be recognized as a true leader.
“If I were Buhari I will decide on two options, one to resign or buckle up and prove myself to be the real leader.
“What is the essence of enjoying the privileges of the President, when you cannot guarantee lives and properties of your citizens? I weep for Buhari’s administration.
“This is not what we expected. Enough of flimsy and watery excuses. I’m waiting for a time when President Buhari will say ‘We will never abandon any Nigerian taken hostage, we will protect our people and interests anywhere in the world’ Buhari has indeed disappointed Nigerians in the area of securing lives and properties.”
President Donald Trump had hailed the US soldiers for the successful operation, describing it as a “Big win” for the very elite US Special Forces.
Recall that the Pentagon had confirmed that the operation to rescue Walton was executed on Saturday.
