A presidential candidate in the 2019 presidential election, Prof. Kingsley Moghalu has said the responses of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to the rising spate of violence and insecurity in Nigeria is “weak”.
Moghalu stated this while appearing on Channels TV’s Sunday Politics.
The Young Progressives Party (YPP) chieftain said, “The responses to the security challenges we are having are so weak and not very well thought through.”
Moghalu also noted that the kind of solutions being proffered by Buhari and his team were inadequate to meet the country’s current security challenges.
“There must be a collective coming together to address the problems of the country manifesting as insecurity.
“The first fundamental solution to Nigeria’s problems is that Nigeria must be constitutionally restructured to become a true federation. It is very important that Nigeria’s borders should be manned.
“When you don’t act in a way that you are supposed to act, you leave the citizens a lot of room for speculation and that is what I will advise the government against.
“We need to take a very proactive approach to our security problems rather than a reactive approach, reacting only when people are killed,” he added.
