The Chief Executive Officer of RadioNow, Kadaria Ahmed, has said if President Muhammadu Buhari is incapable of handling the issue of terrorism, he should go on sick leave and allow somebody to take over the nation’s affairs.
Ahmed, who had described a recent BBC documentary on Zamfara banditry as “irresponsible reporting”, stated this while speaking with Arise TV on Wednesday.
She said the BBC Africa Eye might be charged with aiding terrorism because it “glamorizes” terrorism by “providing” a platform for the terrorists to express their extreme views and insensitivity to their victims.
The media expert, however, said she had no intention to excuse the government on its responsibility of safeguarding lives and property.
Ahmed said President Buhari had admitted that ‘no country on its own can defeat terrorism, and that suggests that there’s nothing he can do to safeguard the country.
“Even if it is a question of persuading the president. I don’t know, he has not been well, may be he can go on sick leave for an extended period and allow somebody else to have a go. Because by his own admission, he said something like ‘no country on its own can defeat terrorism.’
“What I am hearing is, ‘I am not too sure there is anything more I can do.’ That is what I hear when I hear that. So, may be it is time to look at other options,” she said.
