Following the high rate of insecurity in Nigeria, the former deputy Senate president, Ike Ekweremadu, has urged the federal government to end insurgency in Nigeria.
Punch reports that President Muhammadu Buhari-led government should not be ashamed of approaching countries that have the capacity to help Nigeria secure her sovereignty, the citizenry as well as protect its nascent democracy.
Legit.ng gathered that Ekweremadu stated this during the inauguration of Abonnema Ring road in Akuku Toru local government area of the state on Thursday, January 7.
“We should not be ashamed to learn from our colleagues on what to do. If we need help, we must seek help from whoever we can get help from and that’s the only way we can develop.
“This is an opportunity for me to call on our leaders, just like I am saying that other States should learn from Rivers state, we in Nigeria must also accept assistance from other countries in order to secure our borders, secure our democracy, secure our place and secure the citizens of this country."
It was reported that the former deputy Senate president made the call on Wednesday, November 25 in Abuja at a book presentation authored by brands strategist, Ikem Okuhu.
The Enugu-born federal lawmaker noted that while the calls for ceding the presidential tickets of the major political parties to the southeast are in order, he, however, counselled that the zone must engage the northern part of the country in dialogue.
