Following cases of insecurity across the country, the Muslim Rights Concern, MURIC, has blamed former President Goodluck Jonathan for the current security challenges in the north.
This was reportedly disclosed in a statement on Saturday, signed by its Director, Professor Ishaq Akintola.
According to him, “The insecurity may be bad presently, but honestly it could have been worse. Have we forgotten so soon how Boko Haram bombed the United Nations building? That was on Friday, 26th August 2011. 21 people were killed in that attack alone. 60 were wounded.”
He maintained that, “But today the picture has changed. Buhari ensured that the Nigerian army is properly equipped and he does not allow the diversion of money meant for arms.”
He continued that, “The North should know who is responsible for the current insecurity. The North should blame those who failed to take prompt action in the heydays of Boko Haram and those who stole money meant for the purchase of arms, at least a political party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was in power when politicians grabbed $2.1 billion arms money and shared it among its leaders. The North should put history in proper perspective and direct its anger where it rightly belongs.”
He probed that, “How can the North start blaming the man who has refused to steal arms money and has been jealously guarding and monitoring its use.”
He added that, “The North must open its eyes very wide and avoid transferred aggression. The North must know its enemy. The North must know when to protest. The North must not give any room to professional kleptomaniacs. The North must not destroy the North. We must never bring people who will steal arms money to power again.”
