The state of insecurity in the country has been attributed to the failings of the previous administration under the umbrella of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), according to a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Abba Ali, who said that the problems inherited were from other parties.
Ali accused the previous administration and the PDP as a whole of failing to do anything when the Chibok girls were abducted.
He said that the current administration is working hard to ensure that the citizens are "secured, catered for".
He said, “The insecurity we inherited in the country was not the making of the All Progressives Congress (APC). It is from other parties, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) when they were in power.
“The Chibok girls were taken away for quite some months; they did not do anything until this regime came in. Boko Haram in the past occupied 17 local government areas of Borno State.
“The government in the country is doing all they can to make sure that the people are secured, catered for. This government has done a lot, is doing a lot, and will continue to do a lot to make sure that this country becomes a secured country.”
Nigeria's insecurity has been a bane in the country's progress on matters of security since the year 2009.
According to the United Nations, over 30,000 Nigerians have lost their lives in violent deaths at the hands of the insurgents, leaving millions displaced.
