President Muhammadu Buhari has been accused of failing to deliver on the issue of security of Nigerians according to the youths from his home state of katsina.

The youths in Katsina State under theauspices of Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG) stated this while bemoaning the pervadingspate of killings and kidnapping orchestrated by bandits in the state.

The youths said the wave of banditry, rape, and kidnapping ravaging Batsari and Faskari Local Government Areas of the state had unforeseen economic, social and political implications that if not tackled will engulf the entire state.

They made the assertion in a communique issued to journalists on Saturday by the North-west Vice Chairman of CNG, Mr. Jamilu Aliyu, shortly after a roundtable discussion on how to end banditry, kidnapping, and rape in Katsina State, held at the Katsina State Motel.

Aliyu, in the communique, said the government’s attempts to reassert public confidence with repeated rhetoric of being on top of the situation, seem to be worsening the uproar as killings and kidnapping for ransom has become a daily occurrence in most parts of the state.

He said: “The administration of President Muhammadu Buhari has failed the nation and in particular, Katsina State in the vital area of improving citizen’s lives and securing the property.

Many of our parents and children are still in captivity and many of them are widows and orphans.“The rise in the spate of banditry and kidnapping in places such as Faskari and Batsari lately has become a major trying point for everyone but the authorities have remained detached from the reality”.


The North-West vice chairman of CNG, however, called on Governor Aminu Bello Masari to investigate the alleged misappropriation of security funds meant to stem banditry in the state by some members of his kitchen cabinet.

He expressed dissatisfaction that thealleged embezzlement of security funds by government officials was coming attime residents of the state were under siege by marauding bandits andkidnappers.
