Bishop of the Diocese of Ijebu South-West, Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), Reverend Babatunde Ogunbanwo, says the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has failed Nigerians.
Ogunbanwo made this declaration on Friday in his bishop charge during the first session of the fourth synod of the Diocese in Odogbolu, Ogun State.
He said Buhari’s failure was hinged on the continuous killings in the country, especially in the Christian dominated part of Kaduna State – Southern Kaduna.
The cleric described the President as ‘weak and clueless about insecurity challenges facing the country.”
He claimed the challenges of insecurity in the country had created fear in Nigerians, adding that the killing of Christians in the state emanated through ethnic conflicts.
The bishop, however, called on the Federal Government and international organisations to find a lasting solution to the resurgence of attacks by killer herdsmen, bandits, armed robbers and other security threats in the country.
He said, “We are quite concerned about the spate of unwanted killings going on in the Christian dominated Southern Kaduna, in Kaduna State.
“It is so sad that this cycle of unprovoked violence and destruction of human lives and property have gone unchecked for many years without much intervention from Nigeria’s security units, Kaduna State (Government) and Federal Government.
“From the look of things, it is becoming clear that the perpetrators of these murderous acts are on a mission of genocide and ethnic cleansing. The government has so far failed to prove to us that it is willing to bring a permanent end to this persisting carnage.
