President Buhari on his visit to Taraba state yesterday explained his reasons for not rushing to violence torn communities as expected. He mentioned he has his ways of gathering intelligence. Although we cannot force him to visit the affected areas but don’t you think he could have avoided all the mess in the first place?
Many might want to consider his excuse as an understandable reason for selectively making his trips but you must realize that despite the visit, the security threat still lingers. Just as Buhari’s visit to Nassarawa state did not do anything much to salvage the growing herdsmen crisis, should we expect any difference in Taraba as well?
From the onset of his government, many expectations were on Buhari’s promised battle against Boko Haram; shortly into his tenure, different captions of press releases surfaced, commending the military was gradually winning the battle, especially with reportedly rescued girls, but did it end there?
It’s been two weeks since another set of school girls were kidnapped and many are already questioning the presidency’s supposed achievement of defeating Boko Haram. Now Buhari had made it public that he needs to gather intelligence, but what his urgent and important to the parents, Buhari’s visit or the release of the kidnapped children? Is there a misplacement of priority going on with the presidency or what do you think? Express your passion in the comment section below.
