A former presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party, Sule Lamido, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to secure Nigerians.
He stated that the issues raised by the Northern Elders Forum are real and that every Nigerian shares such concerns.
NEF had passed a vote of no confidence on Buhari regarding the rising insecurity in the country.
In a Facebook post on Tuesday, Lamido reminded Buhari that Prof Ango Abdullahi and Hakeem Ahmed and many more in the NEF had been his loyal troops through thick and thin and had never abandoned him even in defeat.
Lamido, who is a former Governor of Jigawa State, urged Buhari to reflect on why his former loyalists now abandon him in victory.
Lamido wrote, “I urge Mr President to reflect deeply on the statement of the Northern Elders Forum on the state of the nation’s security.
“Sir, the issues they raised are real and each and every Nigerian except Femi and Garba share these concerns, even you as our Commander in Chief claimed not to be aware of our insecurity situation until the likes of NEF raised the red alarm!
“You need to also read the warnings written by elder statesman, Bashir Tofa to Nigerian big men on the analysis of insecurity in Nigeria, our sub-region and Africa.
“I hope the General without troops Femi was referring to sarcastically is not you sir! You have many capable hands around you, sir, listen to them, (and) engage them. Ignore Femi, ignore Garba, keep paying them if only for charity, but please secure us!”
