Insecurity: Attackers of Critical National Infrastructure Want me to Fail – Buhari
Obiajulu Joel Nwolu

President Muhammadu Buhari has said that sponsors and perpetrators of attacks on national infrastructure in some parts of the country are doing so in a bid to bring down his government, vowing to give them the shock of their lives by rising to the occasion.

This was contained in a statement issued on his verified Twitter handle, on Tuesday after being briefed by the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Mahmood Yakubu, and other electoral commissioners.

Buhari said the assailants destroying public property in the country are doing so because they want his administration to fail.

The President also said those agitating for secession are ignorant of the destruction and loss of lives that trailed the Nigerian Civil War, promising to deal with them in the “language they understand”.

He said, “I receive daily security reports on the attacks on critical national infrastructure, and it is very clear that those behind them want this administration to fail. Whoever wants the destruction of the system will soon have the shock of their lives. We’ve given them enough time.

“In the area of security, we have changed the Service Chiefs and the Inspector-General, and we are demanding that they rise fully to the challenges confronting us. There must be zero tolerance for all those bent on destroying our country by promoting crime and insurrection!

“Many of those misbehaving today are too young to be aware of the destruction and loss of lives that occurred during the Nigerian Civil War. Those of us in the fields for 30 months, who went through the war, will treat them in the language they understand.”
