‘Wolf in sheep’s clothing?’ — Remi Tinubu tackles Smart Adeyemi over comments on insecurity

‘Wolf in sheep’s clothing?’ — Remi Tinubu tackles Smart Adeyemi over comments on insecurity

Remi Tinubu, senator representing Lagos central, on Tuesday, tackled Smart Adeyemi, her All Progressives Congress (APC) colleague from Kogi west, over the latter’s comments on Nigeria’s security challenges.

In recent weeks, the country has witnessed a spike in criminal activities, from Boko Haram insurgency to banditry and kidnapping.

Sani Bello, Niger governor, said on Monday that Boko Haram has hoisted its flag in a Shiroro LGA of the state.

Contributing to a motion on the situation, Adeyemi said the country is facing the worst instability since the civil war.

“This is the worst instability we are facing. In fact this is worse than the civil war,” he said.

But Tinubu interrupted him, asking: “Are you in PDP (Peoples Democratic Party)? Are you a wolf in sheep’s clothing?”

Adeyemi, however, ignored her comments and continued: “We cannot pretend that we are capable of handling the situation in our hands. America, as powerful as they are, when the pandemic came, it came to a point China came to their rescue.

“We shouldn’t pretend that we need foreign support now. Billions of naira has been voted for security services and nothing is coming out of it.

“I’m a party man and I’m supporting APC but it has gotten to a point that as supporters we cannot keep quiet.”

TheCable had reported how Nigeria recorded more than 10 security incidents on Monday as killings and attacks continued across the country.

    Thank you Senator Smart Adeyemi for speaking up, while others who claim to represent Nigerian citizens, simply do not know what representation means. Your people are murdered daily and Remi Tinubu is worried about party affiliation. Ms. Tinubu, do the kidnappers and or the murderer care to know the difference? Unless of course they are sponsored by the APC, which probably explains why both the House of Reps and the Senate seem clueless to these challenges.
