Governor Dave Umahi
Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi state has stated that the rising insecurity in the country is caused as a result of the failure of past Nigerian leaders to address the future of the youths.
Governor Umahi said this when he appeared on Channels Television on Thursday, May 6. According to the governor, it is not proper to blame the present administration for the heightened insecurity in the country as the reasons are systematic.
“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
