Insecurity: Jonathan responsible for terrorism in Nigeria —APC National Publicity Secretary, Felix Morka
“Again, this is not to suggest that all is well. There is obviously, some very serious work to be done. This government will do his work.”
While stating he found the threat to impeach the President as a major distraction from the main issue the country is facing today, Morka noted that removing Buhari won’t make terrorism or the perennial challenge of insecurity to go away.
“It is an unjustified and unwarranted attack by these elements against our people and freedom. If it is that simple to remove the President and everything about Nigeria is solved, the PDP would have done it way back when they were in power.
“Jonathan would never have survived the onslaught if he was not defeated by election. A lot of issues we are talking about today were incubated by the same individuals and party when they were in government.
“I have not heard them speak, loud and clear, to condemn the actions of these terrorists and those inflicting harm on our people. Therefore, as a minority caucus, their first resolution should be, first of all, to a send signal to say ‘We stand with Nigerians.’ Then reject and condemn this thing.
“I also think it is very insensitive to watch what Nigerians are facing today. That’s why I said trying to impeach Buhari because of what is going now is a major distraction and a simplification of the problem,” he said.
Morka said, “This issue we are discussing happens everywhere in the world. When there is an act of violence or terror against people in other countries outside of Nigeria, political opposition and the ruling party stand shoulder-to-shoulder to condemn the perpetrators of evil. That is what they do.
“When you don’t do that, it is like choosing the terrorists themselves over your own people who are the target of terror. This is an inexcusable politicization of a very serious challenge to our national security.
“Even if the terrorists are roaming around as they do, sneaking in the shadows and attacking our military, these are our citizens who are out there fighting to defend our liberty and lives. Where is the empathy for them including our police and security forces confronting them head-on?
“I think the event by the minority caucus is just a major distraction. This government remains committed to combating insecurity. The Nigerian Army, populated by Nigerians, will continue with its work and the sacrifice they make to keep the country safe.” Continue reading..
