Insecurity should not be allowed to continue – Peter Obi tells Nigerian Govt


The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, Mr Peter Obi, on Wednesday said that the level of insecurity in the country should not be allowed to continue.

This is even as he told the government to evolve more serious and innovative strategies in tackling insecurity in the country.

Obi’s reaction followed the abduction of passengers who were traveling to Abuja in mass transit buses, along Kogi State.

In a post on his X handle, the former Anambra State governor said, “As insecurity, banditry and kidnapping continue to spread unchecked in the country, I am yet greatly saddened by the reports of the kidnapping of some passengers who were traveling to Abuja in public transportation buses.

“These brothers and sisters were reportedly kidnapped in Kogi State, yesterday, on their way to Abuja. The security of lives and property remains a high governance priority which must be given the urgent attention it deserves, by the government and relevant agencies.

“I appeal to the people unleashing these waves of terror on the nation to have a change of heart and abandon such criminal acts. Our thoughts are with the families of the kidnapped victims, as we unite in efforts towards their safe release and better security for our country.

“This level of insecurity must not continue to be tolerated in our nation now or in the future. Government must evolve more serious and innovative strategies for dealing with this climate of insecurity.

“When widespread insecurity is added to the hunger and deepening poverty ravaging our country, the plight of the nation becomes even more precarious.”
