Afenifere chieftain, Pa Ayo Adebanjo, has reacted to the open letter written to President Muhammadu Buhari over Nigeria security by former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
The ex-president had revealed the security challenges faced by Nigeria, and also proposed some solutions.
He called on President Buhari to act fast on the security challenges in the country, which has been a major concern of Nigerians.
Adebanjo in his reaction to Obasanjo’s letter called on President Buhari to act on the letter and demonstrate his commitment to keeping the country together.
I endorse what he (Obasanjo) has said a hundred per cent. The situation in the country has got to a critical point that needs immediate attention. It is not a question of we shall do this or we are doing this. The thing has got to a boiling point.”
“The situation in the country has got to a position where we have to decide two things: are we going to do restructuring now or we are going to do de-amalgamation? It has come to that stage. We are talking of restructuring because we believe under restructuring we can take care of our security if we do it properly then we can stay together. Anything that is not immediate now is just praying for time.”
Mr. President must do something positive immediately to show that he wants to keep the country together and all the complaints he sees to it. They are killing us right, left and centre; kidnapping us; no arrest has been made, not to talk of prosecution. You want to beat us and ask us not to cry?”
