An American applied economist at John Hopkins University, Baltimore, United States, Steven Hanke described President Muhammadu Buhari- led administration as sleepy following the rising waves of insecurity in the country.
Hanke, who is one of the Buhari-led administration’s critics, said this in a reaction to the recent attack on a Nigeria Air Force jet by bandits, describing the administration as incompetent.
Recalls that a Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Alpha jet that flew out of base for an assault on Sunday, crashed.
The fighter plane routinely conducts air raids on the Kaduna-Katsina-Zamfara corridor.
It was gathered that the aircraft crashed in Kaduna during an operation after it was attacked by bandits but no casualty was reported.
Reacting, Hanke in a tweet via his Twitter account on Thursday slammed Buhari for allowing bandits to keep terrorizing Nigerian citizens under his watch.
According to him, “Nigeria ranks a terrible 161 out of 162 in security and safety, a report recently released by Caton Institute.
“On the border of the Nigerian state of Kaduna, bandits have shot down a Nigeria Air Force jet. Nigeria ranks a terrible 161 out of 162 in security and safety, a report released by Caton Institute reveals.
He also tweeted that under President Buhari, Bandits have taken over parts of Nigeria, acting with impunity.
