In the heat of the controversy hovering around the nation’s polity, the All Progressive Congress governors, yesterday, accused President Goodluck Jonathan of paying more attention to his re-election in 2015 rather than addressing the security challenges in the nation.
In reaction to the Monday’s deadly attack on the Nigerian Air force base in Maiduguri, the Progressive governors blamed security glitch on what they termed as “lack of security agenda’’ by Mr. President. They also claimed that he was power thirsty seeking means to win the next presidential election, rather than addressing the insecurity issue in the nation.
The governors said, “The most recent attack was particularly telling as it shows that President Goodluck Jonathan has no security agenda and is only focused on retaining power beyond 2015. The result of this criminal negligence is the unabated slaughter of lives. Clearly the security structures set up in the region have been overwhelmed.
“The PGF calls on the President to reassess his security strategy and focus more on the critical issues of the day. Obviously, the strategies and tactics currently adopted by the President and security agencies drafted to the region have been ineffectual, just as they leave much to be desired.
