Former senator representing Kaduna Central in the National Assembly, Shehu Sani has accused the ruling elites in the North of being complacent in the security challenges currently bedeviling the zone.
Sani, in a post on his Twitter handle, frowned at the fact that most Northern leaders,Islamic Clerics,Politicians,Senators, Governors and youths that used to be vocal against the chains of insecurity being experienced in the region no longer speak up for their people.
He said that the people have now resorted to speaking for themselves in protest to this inaction of the elites.
“Most of the Northern leaders,Islamic Clerics,Politicians,Senators,Governors and Youths that used to challenge the past Government on issues of insecurity have now lost their voices under this dispensation.
“The people are now left to speak for themselves in protests,” Sani wrote.
There has been a raging verbal war between the Presidency and the chairman of the Northern Elders’ Forum, Ango Abdullahi, after the latter said that the Federal and State Governments have failed in the bid to secure the people of the region.
Not waiting to be outdone, the Senior Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity replied promptly, branding Abdullahi, “a General without troops”.
This did not gone down well with some analysts who felt the government could have addressed the issues raised by Abdullahi rather than tackling his person.
