A top stalwart of the major opposition, the peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr Olumide Aderinokun, has advised President Muhammadu Buhari to act urgently to save Nigeria from falling apart.
Acccording to the top politician, the unity of Nigeria under President Buhari is ‘shaky’ following the high rate of insecurity in the country
The statement was issued by his spokesman, Taiye Taiwo,
He lamented the insecurity menace in Nigeria, urging the President Muhammadu Buhari to focus more on securing lives and properties instead of politicising the recent events.
“Just before the Imo State Police Headquarters and a correctional facility in Owerri were attacked by gunmen, which led to the release of over 1,800 inmates on Monday, the country had recorded several security challenges including kidnapping, robberies, communal clashes to mention a few.
“It is obvious that the current security situation across the nation is deteriorating which calls for worry for every concerned Nigerian. That is why it is very important for President Muhammadu Buhari to do something very urgent to save Nigeria from falling apart.
“We must learn to live peacefully with ourselves. No nation can make any meaningful progress in an atmosphere riddled with pockets of violence and killings.
“It is time for every Nigerian to unite and eschew bitterness along ethnic and religious lines for the sake of a prosperous Nigeria.”
