The former President, Goodluck Jonathan, on Friday, said President Muhammadu Buhari is not sleeping over the security situation of the country.
Jonathan called for synergy among the President, governors, security chiefs, and other stakeholders to tackle insecurity in the country.
The former president stated this when he paid a condolence visit to Governor Ifeanyi Okowa at the state Government House, Asaba, over the recent demise of Sir Okorie Okowa.
He lamented that it was unfortunate that school children and many Nigerians were being kidnapped for ransom by bandits.
Jonathan said, “I believe that with the commitment of the governors and the Federal Government, we will be able to address the issue of security in the country.
“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.”
Meanwhile, Jonathan said that the rumour of his interest to run for the 2023 presidential election was a speculation as he pledged to continue to serve God, humanity, Africa to the best of his ability.
He said, “On the rumour of my interest in the 2023 presidential election, it was mere speculation.
“I will continue to serve God, humanity, Africa, and the world to the best of my ability and with all sense of commitment and sincerity.”
