Past leaders to be blamed for insecurity in Nigeria - Gov Umahi

The Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi, has blamed the past Nigerian leaders for the failures to address the insecurity issues in the country.

He made this statement during an interview on Channels Television on Thursday, May 6, 2021.

According to him, it was wrong to blame the present administration for the level of insecurity in Nigeria.

“When people talk about the recent insecurity in our country, I keep saying that the insecurity did not just develop overnight. It has been a result of the failure of our past leaders to address the future of our youths. And this is the truth. So it’s not a question of blaming Mr President or blaming Governors or blaming APC or PDP; it is systematic and it has been there for a very long time.

I think that we must deploy sincerity in our approach. We must deploy consultation, wisdom and prayers. If all these are put together, I am sure that the insecurity in the country will be a thing of the past,” he said.

Nigeria has been faced with numerous insecurity challenges ranging from kidnapping, terrorism, banditry, cultism and many more.
