Insecurity: Buhari Betrayed Our Trust – Katsina Assembly Member
The member representing Danmusa constituency at the Katsina State House of Assembly, Honorable Aminu Garba Danmusa said that the President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari has betrayed the trust of Katsina State people.
Hon. Danmusa said this while commenting on the current rising insecurity affecting some parts of the State including his constituency on the floor of the House last week.
Below is the transcript of what he said in a viral video obtained by Katsina Post:
“Ok , it didn’t start today, I will deliberate on the President, The Katsina people’s trust have been betrayed, (clap clap from some members for the bluntness), we gave him the highest vote in Nigeria so that he becomes the President. As my colleagues have lamented, just yesterday they came into Danmusa town in a locality called Marken Dambi and killed a man and took away his wife and her daughter yester night.
“I went for a security meeting at Danmusa with all stakeholders outraged. There is an 80 man security force called special squad but does not hinder miscreants from storming in and carrying out their activities. I specifically told residents of Danmusa to pack their belongings and relocate elsewhere, I insisted. I do not regret my statement. We were all elected by same people. I do not have anywhere else to call my town than Danmusa but yet I cannot go there at will.
“People are killed, houses set ablaze, wealth vandalised. Is this how we will remain. The security force that are there are not combatant they are even scared. Yesterday we invited a Major who said he apologises to residents of Danmusa LG that what they are supposed to do is not what they are doing, he said that publicly without reservation. It is unfortunate.
“Frankly speaking we are overwhelmed. This challenge can only be handled by God almighty and Buhari( the President). He can do that within 7days. What is our crime in Katsina. We elected him to be our President but today Katsina is the worst hit by crime and hardship. I swear to God We have to tell ourselves the truth. This pretence, hide and seek will lead us nowhere. I call without regrets.
“What is our sin to President Muhammadu Buhari who doubles as commander in chief but day in day out crime continues to rise. A situation where both mother and daughter would be kidnapped and a mother would watch her daughter raped or a father watches his daughter raped and no one can utter a word.
“We the elected members keep pretending, I swear this scenario affects our leaders, our businessmen, our Emirs, our ulamas, we should march forward and meet this man (referring to President Buhari) and ask him what our sin is that he cannot curtail this heinous acts by miscreants.”
