Emmanuel Waye, the National Publicity Secretary of Arewa Consultative Forum, says members of the forum are very sad and depressed over the wanton killings recorded in the region and that like many others, he has lost faith in President Buhari’s administration.
Waye made this known in an interview with Channels TV on Wednesday, December 30. While addressing the deplorable state of security across the country, Waye said
“We are very very depressed. We are very sad in the ACF. Nobody is happy because of what has been happening to our people.
How can I have faith in someone who presides over this kind of thing? I had faith in him when I followed him as a reporter and he chased away some foreigners who were coming to kill us.
When he was coming to be President, I had faith in him. I witnessed how successful this man was in chasing enemies out of our country in 1983. But now, 300 people kidnapped in his home state.”
Waye added that no northerner is happy with the spate of killings and attacks in the region. He said fear rules the Northern region now so much that he like many others cannot go to their villages anymore.
“I can’t go to my home state of Taraba. The whole place is in chaos, they are killing people every day. That one is not publicised because there is no oil in Taraba.
All over the north, there is insecurity. I have never felt unsafe like I feel now. What can I say? You have seen what is happening to our people,” he said
