Salihu Tanko Yakasai, media aide to Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje has condemned President Muhammadu Buhari over his failure to address the youths protesting extrajudicial killings and harassment by personnel of the Federal Anti-Robbery Squad.
Yakasai said this in reaction to the killing of a protester, Jimoh Isiaq, in Ogbomosho, Oyo state.
Isiaq, a student of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, was shot dead by the police during a peaceful protest in Ogbomosho.
Yakasai said: I’ve never seen a govt with zero empathy like that of Muhammadu Buhari.
“So many times when his people are going through a difficult time and expect some sort of tap on the shoulder to reassure them that he is in charge, but he failed to do so. The ‘i don’t care attitude ‘ is on another level.
“To speak to your own people over issues that are bedeviling them has become something like a favour you’re doing to them. Over and over again, you cannot spare 5 minutes and address the nation to calm them down, the same people you went to the 36 states to beg for their votes, it’s heartbreaking.
“Whatever you do in life, make sure you never lose your voice. Speak up against injustice, speak up against inaction, speak up for what u believe in, demand for ur right, and never let a temporary position or privilege stop u from standing with the people. Enough is enough! #EndSARS.”
