President Muhammadu Buhari and his political party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, have been blamed by Northern youths under the aegis of Arewa Youth Forum, AYF, for the wanton killings in the country.
According to the youths, the current administration has continued to show lack of seriousness to end the carnage.
The president of the group, Alhaji Gambit Ibrahim Gujungu while condemning the recent attacks on the Plateau in a statement in Kaduna, said that they were disturbed by what he described as the unnecessary and avoidable loss of lives in communities in Riyom, Barkin Ladi and Jos South council areas of Plateau State.
Gujungu said that, “It is quite unfortunate that human lives are being lost almost on a weekly basis in Nigeria, mainly in the northern parts of the country and the government is carrying on as if nothing is wrong.
“Buhari administration has failed in securing the lives and property of Nigerians since coming on board in 2015.”
The youths further called on the government to act fast and deal with the situation before the situation degenerates and threatens peaceful coexistence.
The Arewa youth leader continued, “We are worried because AYF is of the view that these killings are avoidable if the government of the day rises up to the occasion of its primary responsibility to Nigerians which is the protection of lives and property.
“It is now quite unfortunate that after voting for the APC government, what we are witnessing today is worse than what happened in 2015 before Nigerians voted out the previous administration.”
