Jonathan agrees with Obasanjo, says killings getting worse under Buhari
Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan has said the security situation in Nigeria is becoming worse under the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Jonathan made this know less than 24 hours after ex-President Olusgeun Obasanjo raised the alarm over the high level of insecurity in the country.
He spoke during a condolence visit to Reuben Fasoranti, leader of Afenifere, in Akure, Ondo state capital, on Tuesday, over the death of his daughter, Mrs Funke Olakunrin.
“The issue of security must be approached from a different dimension. We cannot continue the old way because it is getting out of hand. We hope the federal and state governments will do something about it,” he said.
“Every generation face problems and this generation must find ways to solve these problems. Every government faces problem. The first commercial kidnapping, because it involved money, happened in 2006 when I was the governor of Bayelsa state. From that time, it moved to terrorism in the north. Now, it is a major problem in the country.
“The federal government in conjunction with state government must design a different approach to this issue. I was there as president and security challenge was there but now, it is getting worse everyday and we can’t continue to use the same old method.”
