The Minority Caucus of the National Assembly on Tuesday lamented that President Muhammadu Buhari has remained silent despite insecurity in the nation.
The caucus also said the All Progressives Congress (APC) –led administration of President Buhari has continued to breach the constitution.
Leader of the caucus and Senate Minority Leader, Enyinnaya Abaribe who said this at a media briefing in Abuja also noted that the caucus will soon “do the needful to save the country from collapse.”
“We have not heard from our President despite the daily killings that are going on and have turned Nigeria into a killing field of unimaginable proportion.
“Therefore, the caucus has taken note and will continue to take note of the constitutional breaches that is happening at this time by the government of the APC and will at the appropriate time utilise all constitutional methods and measures available after consultation with our colleagues to do the needful to save the country from collapse.
“We also as a caucus want to put on notice to all Nigerians and the international community about the threat to the lives of our members that comes out to say things that are true about the state of Nigeria today and these threats have come in various forms, including the threat to life.
The criticism from the minority caucus comes on the heels of increased insecurity in the country with the insurgency in the northeast region, herder-farmer clash in the middle belt, banditry in the northwest, and separatist tensions in the southeast.
