Insecurity: Nigerians should hold security agencies responsible – Makarfi

Former Governor of Kaduna State, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, yesterday, disclosed that the time has come for security agencies to begin to live up to expectations in tackling the security challenges in the country.

Speaking at his 62nd birthday celebration organised by the Nigeria Youth Project (NYP) in Kaduna, Makarfi said that the work of security operatives should be seen to be commensurate with the money and equipment given to them. The immediate past caretaker Chairman of the PDP also noted that restructuring was necessary for the whole country to feel a sense of belonging in Nigeria.

NYP, who declared their support for Makarfi’s ambition, also vowed to mobilise Nigerians across the country to make sure he emerged President of the country in 2019. According to Makarfi: “We need to put things right in Nigeria. You see the show of shame in Abuja yesterday (Tuesday). That is not good enough.

As we restructure Nigeria, we must restructure public institutions to avoid the shame like the one that happened yesterday.

“What happened yesterday showed that public institutions must be loyal to the country and not individuals. Even at the state level, we have the same problem. “We must tackle the insecurity in the country. Kidnapping must be stopped. Security agencies must be held to account. If they are given the right tools to work with, we expect results, they should not be allowed to go and sleep.”
