Founder of Afe Babalola University Ado-Ekiti (ABUAD), Aare Afe Babalola has come out to blast President Muhammadu Buhari over his refusal to appear before the House of Representatives.

He recently revealed that the invitation by the lawmaker was not wrong considering the several killings and other heinous crimes against innocent Nigerians.

According to him, Buhari was wrongly advised to ignore Niegria’s lawmakers which are the representatives of the people, and he definitely missed his opportunity to explain his government’s efforts in addressing the deteriorating security situation in the country.

He then added that our leaders must be more alive to its responsibility of protecting lives and property so as to aid the development of the nation.

His words, “The reason why we are together in the society is because we want our property and lives to be secured. Today we have a crisis over security and there is virtually no day you read the papers that you won’t see people being reported killed or kidnapped, it has become the other of the day as if human beings are not important anymore.

“If the parliament invites the president, I believe he ought to have appeared by way of courtesies to the lawmakers.

“The national assembly is the legislative body of this country, they make the law and they expect the president to carry out the law. I believe if I were in his position, I would have gone.

“Fortunately, he wanted to go, he told the whole world that he was going to appear but he was ill-advised not to go.”

“I read in the papers that the new president of NANS who happens to be from Ekiti state, about 200 yards from my father’s house threatening that he will close down private univeristies if the government did not listen to and agree with the ASUU. I thought he would have directed his vengeance to the government or to ASUU and seek a way of settling it instead of saying he will attack private university.

“The private universities as you all know are established by the private individuals who are interested in changing the quality of education in this country,as you know ABUAD is known for quality education and students are here from all parts of the country.

“What power has he to shut down a university? What method is going to use to shut down the university? Does that not imply that he was inciting those who did not attend university to come and attack private university?

“Of course, you should know that is a criminal offence and I am sure the police must have read it and take necessary action for anybody who wants to take the laws into their hands in shutting down universities. It means he is going to take violence in achieving that and it is left for the police to take action.”
