According to the statement, “Right from the inception, President Buhari listed fight against corruption as his main agenda followed by tackling insecurity.
“He endeavored by carefully appointed trusted allies without minding the federal character and outcries for lopsidedness of these appointments.
“Infact, some people supported the anomalies with the mindset that, the outcome matters, if appointing only his people is the way out to better the country’s condition, no problem.”
National President of the association expressed his displeasure on the outcome of their performance as they all made no difference, according to him, “Disappointingly, none of his ‘saints’ performed differently. The situation in Nigeria now becoming more pitiable than it was in six years ago in terms of corruption and insecurity.
“We could neither blame the appointees not the service chiefs for both crushed anticorruption and worsened insecurity in the country. Instead, the person we voted for to preside over Nigeria would be taken responsible. The failure of Mr President’s appointees is indeed his failure.”
