Buhari accuses Jonathan of playing politics with security

05 December 2014, 21:21

Abuja - Former Head of State, Muhammadu Buhari, has condemned the manner in which the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan has handled the issue of Boko Haram in the country, Vanguard reports.

Buhari made the comment in response to a statement by Peoples Democratic Party accusing him of playing politics with the insurgency and unpatriotically refusing to join hands with Federal Government to address the problem until he is elected president.

He said he is “horrified by the bare-faced falsehood, insidious fallacy and scurrilous untruth contained in the statement of the ruling party, just for the purpose of cheap political agenda, bearing similarities with the despicable Emperor Nero, who was fiddling while Rome burned.
