Former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, John Odigie Oyegun, on Monday, noted that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government has not been lucky since it took over power.
According to Oyegun, things have become very tough and rough for the country due to the continuous dwindling resources, unemployment, terrorism, insecurity and other negative issues that has placed the nation’s growth almost at a standstill.
Oyegun while answering questions from newsmen on how far the country has developed in 60 years since independence, said he is not happy that Buhari has not been lucky since his administration.
He added that there have been issues affecting the progress of the country.
The former Edo State Governor while speaking on insecurity said, “On terrorism for instance, I think there are groups/somebody outside this nation who are actively involved, you can see how people are now moving and playing with AK47.”
“This is something that needs urgent and in-depth investigation. I have and will support the realization of state policing, properly integrated into the federal police. The idea of saying state governors will misuse it for political reasons is certain but that should not overshadow our general interest and safety as people.”
“Policing has to become local and main responsibilities of our state administrator, it makes perfect sense to start thinking of having it in place which should be used into federal policing”
“We may not have been giving people hope for tomorrow, we pray COVID-19 will be contained for the betterment of our people. My belief is that this economic crisis will be over very soon. I’m sad.”
