President Muhammadu Buhari has been accused of not commanding the respect of his service chiefs and Nigerians.
Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe has stated that Nigerians and service chiefs no longer take the President serious when it comes to the issue of tackling insecurity in the cournty.
Abaribe said even the Security Chiefs do not take Buhari seriously over the country’s challenges.
He made the remark in response to the marching order Buhari gave to Security Chiefs to go after bandits and kidnappers.
The president had issued the directive before embarking on his trip to the United Kingdom, UK, for medical check-up.
However, Abaribe while speaking on Channels Television’s Politics on Wednesday said: “Why would we take President Muhammadu Buhari seriously? Just the day after he had said we would no longer accept all these kidnappings, this would be the last, they kidnapped the next day.
“And those people are still there; those innocent Nigerians are still in captivity up till now. He always makes a statement. Every time these things happen, nothing happens. So it is obvious nobody takes him seriously with that. Even the military chiefs, I don’t think they bother themselves.
“This is about the umpteenth time that we are hearing the President giving a marching order. Throughout the Buratai time as the Chief of Army Staff, he was always giving marching orders so he has given just another one.”
