Labour Party, LP, has challenged President Muhammadu Buhari to put up measures that would salvage the challenges of insecurity across the country.
In a statement by its National Secretary, Barrister Julius Abure in Abuja, the LP raised alarm over the upsurge in insecurity in the country, noting that it portends danger to the unity and peaceful coexistence amongst Nigerians.
The party warned that unless timely and courageous attention is given, “the ship of the country may be heading for the rocks.”
The LP stressed that the economic effect of insecurity in the country earned her the global rating of poverty capital of the world and lamented that the situation is taking a hard toll on the citizens, the economy, and the corporate existence of the country.
“There is no gainsaying the fact that the alarming rate of insecurity in our dear country Nigeria has assumed a frightening dimension in the form of Boko Haram, bandits, herdsmen, kidnapping, etc, and as such, threaten the corporate existence of the country.
“Bandit has taken over different parts of the country to the extent that citizens are murdered every day, kidnapped and extorted; our people can no longer travel on roads safely without being kidnapped or killed by bandits,” it said.
According to them, citizens can no longer sleep with their two eyes closed for fear of being murdered or kidnapped.
They also complained that farmers no longer access their farms as they are being killed in their farms, while women are raped.
The statement further read that, “A country with such high level of insecurity cannot enjoy economic growth. It will definitely not be able to attract direct foreign.
“Insecurity is one of the major reasons why Nigeria is the poverty capital of the world. National security is no doubt a panacea for economic growth and development.”
The party then called on President Buhari to rise to the occasion with innovative and creative ideas to rescue the country from imminent collapse.
They charged the government to also tackle other salient issues bedeviling the country such as; high rate of youth unemployment, adding that the high rate of crime and criminality is a bye product of unemployment, hunger, and poverty.
