Former president Olusegun Obasanjo has accused President Buhari of failing to act quickly to stop the increased insecurity in Nigeria.
Nigerian Tribune reports that Obasanjo fired his latest shot at President Buhari while speaking at the second session of the Synod held at the Cathedral of St. Paul’s Anglican Church, Oleh in Isoko South local government area of Delta state.
Obasanjo, who spoke on the topic, “Mobilizing Nigeria’s human& natural resources for national development and stability” also said both Boko Haram and herdsmen acts of violence were not treated as they should at the beginning.
“Every issue of insecurity must be taken seriously at all levels and be addressed at once without favouritism or cuddling.
“Both Boko Haram and herdsmen acts of violence were not treated as they should at the beginning.
“They have both incubated and.developed beyond what Nigeria can handle alone. They are now combined and internationalized with ISIS in control.
“It is no longer an issue of lack of education and lack of employment for our youths in Nigeria which it began as, it is now West African fulanization, African Islamization and global organized crimes of human trafficking, money laundering, drug trafficking, gun trafficking, illegal mining and regime change.
“Yet, we could have dealt with both earlier, and nib them in the bud, but Boko Haram boys were seen as rascals not requiring serious attention in administering holistic measures of stick and carrot”, he reportedly said.
