Wake up, bandits will begin arresting government soon – Adebayo to Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari President Muhammadu Buhari

The presidential candidate of the Social Democratic Party, SDP, Adewale Adebayo has issued a warning to President Muhammadu Buhari and his service chiefs.

Speaking in an interview with the media in Abuja shortly after a closed-door meeting with the leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Adebayo told President Buhari to wake up.

He made this known after the Nigerian government shut down all schools around the Federal Capital Territory over the insecurity issues in the country.

Adebayo bemoaned the lack of seriousness on the part of Buhari and his government, as he warned that the terrorists may soon take over government.

He charged appointees to resign if they cannot handle the job.

“The shutdown of the government school in FCT according to the government is to prevent kidnapping and other things attached. But before our schools were shut down the first thing that was shut down was the presidency,” Adebayo told reporters in Abuja immediately after a closed-door meeting with the leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN.

“The presidency has been shut down for the past seven years, the government has shut itself down. So, if we are not careful the government will be the bandits and the bandits will be arresting the government.

“We need to be serious, we need to work. We need the president to protect us we share so many things with the government but we can’t share law enforcement with the government.

“There can only be one Commander in Chief in the country. So the Commander in Chief must wake up and his service chiefs must wake up. And he must be capable of replacing them.

“The bandits are people government can deal with decisively. But we must have a government first; if we don’t have a government first all kinds of insults will come upon the country.

“If they want to attack hospitals now will you close too? If they want to attack banks will you close banks too? So, what’s going to be left? If they attack airports will you close airports too?

“Why don’t you just do the job or resign so that those who can do the job will do the job. You can be shutting down.”
