“I have never believed that Nigerians are a lawless people. Rather, I'll choose to put the blame at the doorsteps of a system that blatantly refuses to punish infractions or acts of criminality when they are committed.
“Are those who insist that Nigerians are lawless not surprised to see them adapt quickly when they travel outside the shores of this country?
“We have had convoys of governors, and lately that of the president waylaid, attacked by bandits with no consequence. Can that happen in saner climes where the issue of security is tackled, using technology in gathering intelligence?
“So, this is an area me and my government will beam a searchlight should I be given the people's mandate to become president come 2023.
“We shall not only, as a matter of expediency, pursue a policy that seeks to identify trouble spots, and those behind them, we shall be strengthening our security system through digitalisation to make the process of crime-fighting and punishment for law breakers a key objective.
