Former Minister of Information and National Orientation, Prof. Jerry Gana has vehemently chided the President Muhammadu Buhari led All Progressives Congress (APC) administration which he said has failed woefully to provide security for the safety of Nigerians.
Prof. Gana, a presidential aspirant on the platform of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), stated this while fielding questions from journalists in Makurdi.
He noted that under the APC government, the security, safety and property of the citizenry has continued to be at risk.
The erstwhile Director of Food, Roads and Rural Infrastructure (DFRRI) stressed the to overhaul the police structure in order to have federal, state and community police so that the people can be safe.
“The Constitution of Nigeria said and we agreed with it that the security and safety of people is the primary responsibility of government and any government that cannot do that has failed. Therefore, this APC government has failed, failed and failed woefully”.
“We love peace, we love freedom, love the federal republic of Nigeria but we’ll never accept that our lands are taken away from us and will become homeless people in our own country. It’s not possible”, Prof. Gana alluded.
Prof. Gana emphasised the propensity to restructure the country, devolve power to the federating units so that there will have constitutional power and authority to look after the basic needs of the people such as the need of security, health, housing, agriculture and for other developments at the basic levels.
