A member of the Senate representing Ekiti North, Olubunmi Adetunmbi has beckoned his political contemporaries to shift focus from the forthcoming general elections to finding solutions to the security challenges that have taken Nigeria to a ground.
Addetunmbi made this appeal during his guest appearance on Channels Television “Sun Rise Daily” on Monday.
The federal lawmaker, who described the level of insecurity as war, noted without nipping the situation in the bud, polls cannot hold.
“We should suspend this issue of focus on 2023 and focus on how to salvage this country so that people who have the capacity, knowledge, vision and the solution to solve this problem, that is what we should interrogate and not scoring points,” he said.
“The people who want to use security as a means electioneering and edging out those in power for them to come back there, what do they govern when there is no Nigeria?
“When there is war in Zamfara, there is a problem in Katsina. In Ogun State, there are displacements. In Oyo, Ekiti, there are killings going on. In the east, everything is happening. In that kind of context, how do you govern regardless of what party you belong to?”
He further called on Nigerians to unite at this time in order to overcome the challenges.
