Sequel to the growing poverty and insecurity bedevilling the country, more especially in the northern part of Nigeria.
It appears that President Buhari’s hard-earned popularity is gradually depleting to the lowest ebb even among his die-hard supporters in Kano.
Reports shows the development might be relatively connected with the scorching poverty, which is gradually threatening the livelihood of the masses and growing insecurity of insurgency, kidnapping, banditry and armed-robbery bedevilling parts northern states, which includes; Borno, Zamfara, Katsina, Sokoto, Kaduna and many more.
Cross-section of Kano residents who craved for anonymity voiced out thier divergent views on the currents insecurity and acute austerity which the north is presently grappling with.
Some interviewed have unanimously described that, Four years is enough to gauge the performance of how President Buhari steered the affairs of the country, which his pledges during2015electioneering campaign have not actually coincided with his performances on the ground” they said.
Adding that, President Buhari was previously regarded as a messiah, in spite of his integrity, past experiences, which many have confidence on him to revamped Nigerias ailing economy, insecurity and corruption to the barest minimum, but with what’s obviously transpiring President Buhari deposed peoples confidence, in fact he failed, and don’t even know what might transpire in the next level. Most Nigerians are surely demoralised.
While the other section interviewed, unanimously said, President Buhari is doing his best, with regard to the enormous problems inherited from the past administration, but they said that doesn’t mean he should not be blamed for the insecurity and economic challenges currently suffering by millions of Nigerians, particularly northerners.
They added “he toured across the nation, made the promises during the electioneering campaign, begging Nigerians to vote for him to revamp economy, reduce corruption to the barest minimum,to bring Boko Haram to its knees. But the hopes seems to be vanishing into thin air” they said.
Adding that, by considering of the atrocities been committed by the armed-bandits in the north, which prompted thousands villagers fleeing to safety, which this is totally disappointing.
“Divine intervention is the only and last resort to resurcitates Buhari’s government back to its consciousness” they asserted.
Many are of the opinion that, President Buhari, who took an oath of allegiance to protect lives and properties of citizenry and also as an ex- general, who knows nook and cranny of the region and fully acquainted with its challenges, there have been no anytime apart from the present one, whereby punitive action should be taken to surmount the aforementioned challenges bedevilling the north in particular and the nation at large.
Reports indicate that as acutes poverty bites harder, cross-section of Kano people and its environs who are nation-widely known as die-hard stalwarts of Buhari, are seems to be overly disappointed with his hard economic policies which they said pave way to poverty increment and seamless insecurity tormenting northern states of the country.
