Dr Moses Auta, a former Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kachia Local Government Area of Kaduna State, has said President Muhammadu Buhari values his cows than the lives of Nigerians.
He also blamed the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for not doing enough to curtail the killings and kidnapping of innocent souls across the country.
He said this while speaking with DAILY POST in Kaduna on Friday, noting that with the spate and increasing atrocities committed by bandits and other criminal elements, while the ruling government keeps mute, the criminals will soon take over the leadership of the country.
“Just imagine, 42 precious human beings were roasted in Sokoto by bandits hours after the incident, the president visited Lagos where he inaugurated some vessels exclusively built by Nigerian Navy engineers.
“From there, Buhari sped off to attend the book launch where he was made Special Guest at a book launch titled: “My Participations”, the biography of Chief Bisi Akande, former interim Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
“As president of the country, when your house is under fire, you immediately look for ways to quench the fire.
“The 42 roasted human beings have lives like him, and equally his children. But he abandoned the dead, without visiting the state yo condole with the family of the deceased, only for his media assistant to issue a press release expressing Buhari’s grief over the killing when they realised their faults,” he said.
He wondered why with the size of operatives of the Nigerian Army, Nigerian Navy, Nigerian Airforce, Police, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), even local vigilantes, bandits seem to have power over them.
