Insecurity: Nigeria Doesn’t Need Another Tourist-in-Chief, Atiku Knocks Tinubu

Former vice president Atiku Abubakar has slammed President Bola Tinubu, saying he’s playing fiddle while Nigeria drowns in insecurity.

Atiku said this following Monday’s gruesome killing of two traditional rulers which occurred during Monday’s dastardly attack in Oke-Ako area in Ikole Local Government Area of the state.

The two traditional rulers- the Onimojo of Imojo Ekiti, Oba Olatunde Samuel Olusola and the Elesun of Esun Ekiti, Oba David Babatunde Ogunsola were killed in an ambush by armed men while returning from a meeting. The third traditional ruler, the Alara of Ara –Ekiti, Oba Adebayo Fatoba escaped the attack.

In the same Ekiti, six school pupils and their teachers were abducted and are yet to be rescued as of the time of filing this report.

All of these are happening while Tinubu is currently in Paris, France, on a private visit.

Reacting, Atiku stated that Nigeria needs full time leadership, not another “Tourist-in-Chief”.

He shared on X, “Tinubu is playing fiddle while Nigeria is drowning in the ocean of insecurity. To imagine that the Commander-in-Chief is on a so-called private visit while kidnappers kill a nursing mother and grandmother in Abuja for failing to pay N90m ransom and two monarchs in Ekiti, among other regular tragedies besetting Nigerians. If the shoes are too big for Emilokan, he should step aside. Nigeria does not need another Tourist-in-Chief. The country needs 24/7 leadership to confront the pervasive insecurity and collapsing economy. -AA”
