Insecurity: Nigeria collapsing under Buhari, but not enough for him to resign – Taraba Senator



The Deputy Minority leader of the Nigerian Senate, Emmanuel Bwacha has described security challenges facing the nation as worrisome and reaching a zero level.

He said the situation at hand right now was pushing the nation into anarchy with President Muhammadu Buhari watching helplessly.

The lawmaker who spoke on Monday with reporters at his residence in Jalingo, Taraba State called for prayers for God to intervene rather than asking President Buhari to resign as being suggested in some quarters.

Bwacha maintained that the overwhelming insecurity in the nation has destabilised the country already, insisting that there was nothing short of God’s intervention in this circumstance.

“I does not know how Nigeria got into this mess of bandits, where no place in the country is safe.

“The country is sliding into anarchy which is dangerous for us Nigerians, we need to pray hard for God intervention.

“The insecurity in the country is quite worrisome, we need God’s intervention. No place is safe in this country. I think God is not happy with us, we seriously need Prayers.
