I believe Buhari is not sleeping over insecurity – Jonathan

Nigeria’s Former President Goodluck Jonathan has said that he believes the current Pressident, Muhammadu Buhari, is not sleeping over the security situation of the country at the moment.

Nigeria has been battling various security issues in recent times, terrorism, kidnapping, banditry and ethnic wars have made the headlines over the past few months.

Jonathan while speaking when after he paid a condolence visit to Ifeanyi Okowa, governor of Delta state, over the death of his father, said it is unfortunate that schoolchildren and many Nigerians were being kidnapped for ransom.

He said the federal government and the governors would be able to surmount the challenges if they worked together.

He commended Buhari for his efforts, and asked Nigerians to join hands to make the country safe for all.

“I believe that with the commitment of the governors and the federal government, we will be able to address the issue of insecurity in the country,” Jonathan said.

“I believe that the president himself is not sleeping, and that the governors are not sleeping as well over the insecurity challenge in the country.

“As long as the governors, the president, and all the security agencies can work together, Nigeria will be able to cross over this very ugly phase of societal evolution.”

Jonathan further dismissed rumours of his interest in the 2023 presidential election, saying such comments are speculative.
