Former President Goodluck Jonathan, Tuesday said that Nigerians are no longer safe as insecurity is becoming worse under the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Jonathan stated this while speaking with journalists when he visited Reuben Fasoranti in Akure, Ondo State, to condole with the Afenifere leader over the loss of his daughter, Funke Olakunrin.



Mrs. Olakunrin lost her life following an attack along Benin-Ore highway by suspected herdmens while returning to Lagos after visiting her father in Akure last Friday.

The ex-President explained that every government has its own challenges of security but there must be a solution to solve them.

He said "It (insecurity) is now a major problem in the country and my belief is that the Federal Government with the state governments must design a different approach.

"I was there as a president for some time, security challenges were there with me. I also inherited some. But it is getting worse everyday. And we cannot continue to use the same old method.



"As security operatives, the police, DSS, and other armed forces must deploy technology. I believe the Federal Government will need to set up a special unit, just like we set up EFCC and ICPC to handle specific issues of corruption.

"They would know that their total responsibility is to manage this issue of kidnapping and attacks on people going on the road or going to the farm.

"We can't continue that way, it is not just possible, because we can't talk about managing the economy of this country if people are not safe.


"Economy is for the people, they must be alive to enjoy infrastructure. Even if you construct all the roads in the country and people cannot move around, then the road become meaningless.
