[The Injustice Blog] Plateau Killings: President Buhari should stop blame game and own up to his Failure


Saturday June 23, 2018 was the National Convention of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC). The convention which produced former Governor of Edo state, Comrade Adams Oshiomole as its new helmsman also produced a new slogan for the party which is “Progress”. According to the party, it is time Nigerians experience “progress” after they’ve experienced “change”. As we know in this clime there is nothing concrete about the change other than the usual playing with words.

To show nothing has changed in the state of insecurity in the country, it was expressly displayed less than twenty four hours after the convention. Herdsmen attacked some villages in Plateau state North Central Nigeria and killed eighty six people while several houses where torched with millions lost in properties. President Muhammadu Buhari in his initial response to the attack heaped the blame on politicians as they are “taking advantage of the situation”.

To a close follower of trends since President Buhari was elected president, he has failed take responsibility for any of the tragedies we have experienced in the country since he became our leader. The President will rather blame his opponents for it. Starting from statements released three weeks after his inauguration when election was won and lost. In fact, to show how deep his resentment towards the opposition is, all his media handlers has developed the same penchant of labeling opposition for every occurrence which doesn’t speak well of the administration.

Security has remained the President’s major campaign points but he is making no moves towards actually implementing them. In fact, nothing has made a mess of the trillions we’ve spent on security as a nation other than the endless killings in the North East and the North Central parts of the country. With less than twelve months to the 2019 general elections, we should be taking stock of the gains of this Presidency in the security sector but that is not possible at the moment because the Plateau has fallen to the sword.
