The National Vice Chairman Of the All Progressive Grand Alliance, (APGA), South West zone, Dr. Samson Olalere has attributed the drifting economy and the high rate of insecurity in the country to poor and weak leadership from President Mohammadu Buhari, saying he seems to have lost grasp and control of his government.
Deacon Olalere in a chat with newsmen in Ibadan decried the poor performance of the All Progressive Congress (APC) administration led by President Buhari adding that the nation is already on verge of collapse due to the high rate of insecurity and drifting economy.
“Before they came to power, they made promises which they have failed to fulfied. They don’t have control of the country they are governing, and the kind of constitution we are operating reposes much of power in the President, that is one of the reasons the state governors don’t have much say on security matters from the federal level.”
“There is no doubt that the president is no longer fit from all indications to rule the country and it seems he does not know what is going on around him”.
“When the leader fails to provide security, the people will resort to self help, that is what is happening in the country. It is unfortunate we find ourselves in this kind of situation, he concluded.
Speaking on the Igangan killings which occurred last Saturday in the state, Deacon Olalere described the development as barbaric and unfortunate, urging the governor to intensify effort to find a lasting solution to the incessant attacks in the area.
“The governor felt very devastated by the development and it was unfortunate that he does not have the federal power to give directives to the police and Army GOC in the state on such issue since they take orders from the federal government.
Deacon Olalere while commending governor Makinde for his visit,words of action and encouragement to Igangan people urged him to stepped up security matters in the area.
On twitter ban, he berated the federal government, just as he described the development as uncalled for.
