“Peter Obi playing politics with insecurity” – Buhari’s former aide

Bashir Ahmad, a former assistant on digital communications to ex-president Muhammadu Buhari, has reacted to Peter Obi’s  visit to the Al-Kadriyar family.

Politics Nigeria reports that Obi, the Labour Party presidential candidate in the 2023 election, had paid a condolence visit to the grieving family of Nabeeha Al-Kadriyar who was murdered by her abductors in the federal capital territory (FCT), Abuja recently.

“May the memories of Nabeeha and all those who have lost their lives to such violent attacks inspire us, especially we the leaders, to take more decisive action against this ugly monster of insecurity,” Obi said vis his X handle on Tuesday, January 30, 2024.

Ahmad questioned the motive of the visit by the former governor of Anambra State days after the safe return of the four girls.

“Where were you when people were going the extra mile to see Najeebah and her sisters rescued from captivity?,” Ahmad said.

“Yet now, you have taken photographers to visit the family, which was solely to serve your personal and political interests. Haba!”

He urged the Al-Kadriyar family to stop giving access to politicians who bring along a contingent of journalists for a visit that is more about photo opportunities than genuine sympathy.

Ahmad added that even the former Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Prof. Isa Pantami and his friends, who were the major contributors to the rescue effort, did not visit the family.
