Ex-President of Nigeria Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has spoken up on the spate of insecurity in the country saying the situation has worsened since he handed over power.
These come as he alongside other political leaders pay condolence visit to Afenifere leader on the death of his daughter.
Her death is one of a long list of incidents in the county which has led to copious conversations surrounding insecurity and the capabilities of the president in curbing the menace.
He said in a statement, “The issue of security must be approached from a different dimension. We cannot continue the old way because it is getting out of hand. We hope the federal and state governments will do something about it.
“Every generation face problems and this generation must find ways to solve these problems. Every government faces problem.
“The first commercial kidnapping, because it involved money, happened in 2006 when I was the governor of Bayelsa state. From that time, it moved to terrorism in the north. Now, it is a major problem in the country.
“The federal government in conjunction with state government must design a different approach to this issue.
“I was there as president and security challenge was there but now, it is getting worse everyday and we can’t continue to use the same old method.”
Nigerians all-over are lending their voices to the issue of insecurity especially as it was a cardinal point of President Muhamadu Buhari’s campaign promises prior to assuming office in 2015.
