He also asked the APC led government to come up with new strategies to tackle insecurity.
“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,”
“Every generation face problems and this generation must find ways to solve these problems. Every government faces a problem.
Speaking on the origin of kidnapping and terrorism in Nigeria, the ex-president said Commercial kidnapping in 2006
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.”
