Former presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has said ex-president Muhammadu Buhari failed to fulfil his campaign promise centred on Security, Economy and tackling Corruption.
In a post on X, Obi lamented that the current administration led by President Bola Tinubu has also failed in the same aspect which has gotten worse than ever.
Obi said this amid the rising insecurity in the country which has seen the kidnapping and killing of some teenagers in Abuja.
He said, “As terror attacks, banditry, kidnappings and violence continue to rage through the country, it is more concerning now with the surge of violence spreading through the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja. The recent killings of two abducted young girls in Abuja makes it more depressing and urgent. It is now time for we the leaders, to take all forms of serious measures to tackle the situation. It is unfortunate that President Muhammadu Buhari, in 2015, campaigned and won the elections on three items; Security, Economy and Corruption (SEC).
“After his Eight years in office, the situation has worsened in all three areas. The present administration, on assuming office, promised to deal decisively with the same situation – Security, Economy and Corruption. Today, however, the situation is getting even worse than ever.
“At the Annual General Conference of the Nigerian Bar Association held in Lagos in August 2022, the then Vice Presidential Candidate, Sen Kashim Shettima categorically stated that if APC is elected, he as Vice President would be incharge of security, while the President as an expert in economy would handle the economy. Nigerians therefore now implore them to fulfil their campaign promises. Even if they do not achieve 100% results, we want to see 100% effort.
“It is now time to stop all forms of foreign trips from people in government, until we deal with the ugly situation facing us at home. No foreign investor or partner will like to invest in Nigeria, with the situation we now find ourselves in.
“We must make sincere efforts to end the spread of violence and insecurity in our nation, in order to make any meaningful progress. -PO”
