Oil and gas, fuel, kerosene, construction materials and foodstuffs are regularly high in Nigerian markets, including continued insecurity – Citizens
It is no longer a surprise to see the strong trend of insecurity and bloodshed in virtually all states of the Federation, including the Federal Capital Territory FCT ABUJA.
This has drawn a lot of attention for the government to react and come up with possible solutions to fight against these thugs. But NIGERIANS are shocked by the continued attacks on citizens by bandits mainly on highways and railways.
Our correspondent has learned that an APC leader in Niger State in Nigeria has challenged the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, to embark on a tour to prove that Nigeria is safer under President Buhari and the All Progressives Congress APC party.
The leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) party, Jonathan Vatsa, has asked the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, to travel the country by road to prove that Nigeria is safer under the President Muhammad Buhari, as he claims.
Vatsa, a former information and culture commissioner for Niger State, told Minna reporters that the security situation facing the country continues to deteriorate daily with no end in sight.
Asking Lai Mohammed to withdraw the statement attributed to him, he said, “When you sit down in Abuja and issue statements just to protect your work, posterity will not forgive you.
“I challenge Mr. Minister to drive around the country by road especially Niger, Ondo and Kaduna states, let’s see if the country is safer in the hands of Buhari or not. This is the only way to draw conclusions, he said.
In a related development, NIGERIANS are calling on government officials to visit Nigerian markets, petrol stations and gas plants to see for themselves what the masses are suffering on a daily basis in a country where crude flows like honey and resource management is poorly managed by the same people.
This report is in line with the above challenge for government officials to taste what they have put in place and perhaps understand the trend.
