Ekiti Governorship Aspirant Blasts PMB Over "IGP's Disobedience" Comment

A leading gubernatorial aspirant in Ekiti under the banner of the Abundant Nigeria Renewal Party (ANRP), Rev. Tunde Afe has described President Muhammadu Buhari's not knowing that the IGP, Ibrahim Idris flouted his directive on the Benue crisis as grave and ridiculous.

A statement released by his Media Assistant, Omolabake Akinyemi-Oke described the development as both unpalatable and unpardonable in the face of continuing security challenges. The statement noted that, while the President may be doing his utmost best to contain the security challenges, it is simply unacceptable for people saddled with the task of averting further slide to act aloof without necessary sanctions.

According to the statement, "it is sad that hardly does a day goes by without the news of wanton killings and destruction of properties being reported. Life appears to be cheap and nobody is been held to give account for such distasteful breaches. It's continuation is saddening and callous.

The statement further insisted that the President must ensure the safety of lives and properties without which there cannot be development. Peace as a necessary pre-condition must be ensured to justify the existence of government.

Rev. Tunde Afe maintains that the APC led government must do more than assurances that get punctured by series of mindless killings and continued grave insecurity. He therefore insists the government of the day needs to take drastic steps to ensure that our nation is safe at all costs.
