Attahiru Bafarawa, former Sokoto State Governor, has said President Muhammadu Buhari would be answerable to Allah for the spate of insecurity in the country.
Bafarawa said Buhari should handle the issue of insecurity in the North-West more seriously because he would answer to Allah.
Speaking with BBC Hausa Service, the former governor lamented the insecurity challenge in Sokoto and Zamfara states.
He said: “This insecurity is a catastrophe that has befallen us. The situation in Sokoto and Zamfara states can only be described by those who have been there.
“The sad thing is that we all know that the security of the nation is in the hands of the Federal Government.
“Those people telling President Muhammadu Buhari that everything is OK, or are they telling him things are not OK? If they are telling him things are going on fine, they have cheated him and have cheated us too.
“Allah knows that we are in a serious calamity in our zone.
“My call here is that we should put politics aside. This is a situation that affects me, it affects the President and he is the one that will be answerable to Allah.”
