Boko Haram: Bindow Govt insensitive to Security Issues, Says Gulak

By Daji Sani

A former Special Adviser to President Goodluck Jonathan on political matters and a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, Barrister Ahmed Gulak, has said that the current government of Senator Umar Jibrilla Bindow in Adamawa state is not serious about security issues.

He was reacting to the security situation in Michika town of Adamawa state where, before the onslaught of Boko Haram insurgents, the weekly market day used to be one day for all but it  has now been divided into two days due to distrust and suspicion among returnees of the town

He said the development  has degenerated to having two days currently for the weekly market, one day for the Muslims and another for Christians, adding that that can only happened under an unserious government like that of Bindow

Gulak, who spoke to journalists in Yola, said that the reason for such growing threats was that the state government was insensitive to the people’s plight, adding that if the government was serious it would have nipped the situation in the bud.
