Former Kaduna Central Senator, Shehu Sani has said Nigeria needs a leader because the country is at war.
Sani said Nigeria is at war with multiple organized guerilla groups aiming for power.
He noted that the attacks on police formations, prison facilities, and electoral offices were an attack on symbols and institutions of the state.
In a series of tweets, the former lawmaker lamented that Nigerians are suffering from insecurity despite billions spent on weapons.
He wrote: “The attacks on military formations, police stations, prisons, election commission offices are attacks on symbols, institutions, and pillars of the state. They are not soft targets. The nation is at war with multiple organized guerrilla terror groups aiming at power. We need a leader!
“The government spent over N4 trillion on defence in seven years, including a Billion dollars for Tucano jets and another close to a Billion-Dollar on attack helicopters, and we are still living at the mercy of a roving gang of terrorists on motorcycles.
“When the Nigerian Defence Academy was attacked, nobody was sacked and nobody resigned. The same happened in all the attacks on the prisons; the heads of these institutions are tragically rewarded with extension of tenure.”
