Jang decries killings under Buhari
Olusola Fabiyi, Abuja
A former governor of Plateau State, Jona Jang, has said that the rate at which Nigerians are being killed is worrisome.
He said pregnant women and children were being killed as if there was no government in the country.
Jang, a senator representing Plateau North District in the Senate, spoke with journalists in Abuja on Monday when he visited the national headquarters of the Peoples Democratic Party to submit his presidential nomination and expression of interest forms.
He said the alarming rate at which innocent Nigerians were being killed was one of the reasons that propelled him to aspire to lead the country.
He said, “I have decided to run this race because I have seen what Nigeria is going through.
“Today under the APC government, Nigeria is gradually becoming a pariah’s nation. A nation that will wake up every morning to the stories of killings of innocent citizens of this country.
“Pregnant women, stomach are torn open by some hoodlums that just walk across the borders of Nigeria as if there is no government in this country and the government is unable to do anything about it
“Our people have been suffering in the North-East unabated. We have been told that Boko Haram has been defeated at one stage. The moment they make such an announcement, you will get to know that Boko Haram has either even taken over a military unit or has ambushed our soldiers.
