Earlier today, while receiving members of the South-South Zone Working Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), led by its National Vice Chairman, South-South, Chief Dan Orbih, I called on Nigerians not to lose hope in the country, amid the challenges facing us, but work collectively to ensure a better Nigeria.
The way the ruling party has managed and mismanaged the economy of this country is the reason why we are having the level of insecurity that we are faced with today.
The lawlessness, indiscipline by the ruling party has brought us to where we are.
We run a federation. We have three tiers of government: Federal, State and Local Governments.
Why should security be exclusive to the federal level? What happened to the other two?
Until we address that structural imbalance, we are not going to be able to deal with security at its core.
The country has a major problem and it’s only the PDP that can help the president solve the problem, not his party.
Let us, as party men and Nigerians, help rescue the nation and call on those that have the capacity to rescue Nigeria.
Security is local and we can rescue this nation; this is why Edo is relatively peaceful.
