A group under the aegis of Nigeria Intervention Movement (NIM), has said that the President Mohammadu Buhari led federal government has failed in addressing critical economic and security issues confronting the nation.
Naseer Kura, Head National Publicity Bureau, (NIM) who made this known in a press statement issued said, the inability of the President to address such issues is gradually disintegrating the country.
Kura added that the President Mohammadu Buhari’s new year speech only curiously mentioned boko haram, without stressing on the need to fight deadly armed herdsmen which has poised threat to national peace, cohesion, unity as well as food security.
Reacting to President Buhari’s New Year broadcast, Kura stated that government would have seized the moment and inform Nigerians of the immediate plans to enhance local refining capacity, including the harnessing of the construction and operation of modular refineries to reduce dependence on product importation, while sanctioning saboteurs.
He said, “The president failed to inform Nigerians on what they are doing to punish those indicted for corruption within his administration beyond reluctantly relieving them of their appointments.
“It would be helpful to the continued unity of Nigeria for the President to immediately redress this as restructuring is not an event but a process.
“President should invigorate the process timely before the clamour for democratic constitutional restructuring and advocacy for principles of self determination by Nigerian citizens get out of hand.”
He urged the federal government to urgently tackle the issue of generic unemployment which has engendered youth restiveness across the country.
