With rising insecurity in various parts of the country, the heft of the blame is hung on the shoulders of President Muhammadu Buhari, who, according to a Chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Onuoha Nnachi, has "failed the country on security".
Nnachi stated his position on the matter at his home in the Afikpo South Local Government Area, Ebonyi State.
He also said that the country's economic structure is "not properly handled".
He said, “It is a presidential issue. The president has failed the country on security. It is as if we have no president. The economic structure is not properly handled. We know that causes insecurity.
“As at February, the value of our naira was N360 to a dollar. It means if you have N360 million, you could afford a million dollars. But today, to afford a million dollars you need N480 million; that means a difference of N120 million. That’s the rate of devaluation; you cannot survive it in our economy.
“And it is true, our monetary policies are a failure, our fiscal policies are a failure because we have the wrong people in the wrong place.”
