Killings: Stop ‘Talk, Talk, Talk’, Take Decisive Action, Atiku Tasks Buhari
The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party [PDP] in the 2019 general election, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has charged President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government to desist from unnecessary “talk, talk, and talk” in the face of high insecurity ravaging the nation.
Alhaji Abubakar made the call to President Buhari amidst protracted killing across the country on his Twitter handle on Monday.
Atiku Abubakar wrote: “Our response to the killings of our citizens cannot be just talk, talk, and talk.
“We must take decisive action to protect the lives of all citizens, not just prominent ones.
“There has to be change, because if we continue with the way things are, we will get the same results.”
Going down memory lane, he recounted how Nigeria and Nigerians battled insecurity with community police system thereby keeping the tide of crime at a very low ebb.
He said: “When I was a child, Nigeria had little crime. We did not depend on police from Lagos or Kaduna. We had a community police system.
“Nigeria must return to community policing, adapted to suit the culture and history of each of the 6 zones, in order to stem the tide of insecurity.”
Atiku Abubakar, it could be recalled, is challenging the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 presidential election at the Presidential Election Petition tribunal.
Atiku is claiming that the Independent National Electoral Commission [INEC] colluded with Buhari and rigged the election in his favour.
