You failed Nigerians – Nothern Elders to President Buhari

The Northern Elders Forum has said that President Muhammadu Buhari has failed Nigerians with his style of leadership.

Dr Hakeem Baba Ahmed, the Director, Advocacy and Engagements of the group, while interacting with journalists in Kaduna on Sunday, said they were disappointed at the way Buhari was running the affairs of Nigeria.

Baba-Ahmed said, “The forum demands a thorough overhaul of the leadership of our security and public safety agencies, and the injection of higher levels of competence, integrity and accountability in the manner our troops and the police and security agencies deal with security challenges.

“The forum regrets that by any standard of judgment, the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari has failed the nation in the vital area of improving its security. Poverty, particularly in the North, and massive social security has worsened under this administration.

“The relationship between insecurity and poverty is fundamental, but the administration does not appear to have any idea on what will provide relief or solution.

“It is shocking that in spite of unprecedented consensus among Nigerians that the administration requires a new resolve, approach and leadership in the fight against the nation’s multiple security challenges, President Buhari appears either totally isolated or in deep denial over the result of his failures to secure Nigerians.

“With this type of mindset, it is difficult to see how President Buhari can accept the challenge to radically improve his handling of our security situation.

“Nonetheless, we believe that Nigerians must continue to raise our voices and organise through all legitimate means to demand that the administration address major failings in his perception of our situation and his response to our demands for our rights to security.”

Nigeria has been grappling with security issues in recent times, especially in the North with Boko Haram terrorists, bandits and kidnappers operating almost unhindered.

There have been calls from several quarters for the President to sack and replace the service chiefs as they have outlived their usefulness.

Tinubu denies demanding N50bn monthly from former Lagos Gov, Ambode

Published

The presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has denied reports alleging that he demanded N50 billion monthly from the former Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode during his administration.

DAILY POST reports that Ambode who emerged governor of the state in 2025, had only four years in office as his attempt to secure a second tenure failed after he lost the APC primary election in 2018.

A report recently emerged online alleging that part of his inability to secure the APC governorship ticket in 2018 was his refusal to remit the said amount to Asiawaju.

Debunking the report on Tuesday, a statement by the Director, Media and Communications for Tinubu Campaign Organisation(TCO), Bayo Onanuga said Tinubu could not have made such a demand.

“The spuriousness of the statement is in the evidence that Lagos did not begin to clock N50 billion revenue until after Ambode left office.

“Tinubu could not have demanded a billion monthly payment from Ambode when the state government didn’t make such in a month throughout the tenure of Ambode”, the statement added.

More terrible robberies took place in three more homes on the same block. They destroyed the burglary proof and immediately approached him, threatening to kill him unless he paid N20 million. The star said he didn’t have even though he begged and pleaded for N3m.
