The Unified Nigerian Youth Forum, (UNYF), has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to declare a state of emergency on security following the recent attacks on Kaduna airport and Abuja /Kaduna train service by terrorists.
A statement issued by one AbdulSalam Mohammed Kazeem, on behalf of the Forum on Thursday, stated that the series of attacks has further exposed the inability of the current administration to keep to her campaign promises.
“The country as usual again just lost some finest brains though many were injured while others were kidnapped.
“To our greatest surprise, The Nigerian Railway Cooperation is still unable to provide the original manifest of all those on that particular train, development we view as disgraceful in this 21st century”, he said.
The Forum posited that “it’s no news again that the current administration has failed us.
He, however, noted that, ‘we, the citizens, should not allow this to consume us and the leadership; because available information at our disposal shows that the country has recently imported Super Tucanos and other combat choppers”.
He expressed surprise that these Tucanos and fighter jets are nowhere to be found.
“Having said that, we demand that within the next seven working days, the federal government should declare a state of emergency on security”, the Forum stated.
