The ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) on Monday assured Nigerians that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration will soon deal with those behind the growing insecurity issues in Nigeria.
The party who made this known in a statement titled, ‘We must unite against insecurity – APC and signed by the party’s National Secretary, Senator John Akpanudoedehe, in Abuja noted that the current security challenge is real, and it is not ready to play politics with human lives.
The party, however, condoled with all those affected by the security incidents and appealed to Nigerians to unite against insecurity and criminality in the country.
The statement reads, “The issue of insecurity in the country has found expression in terrorist and criminal activities of Boko Haram, bandits, kidnappers, rustlers and recently the highly condemnable attacks on security formations in some states.
“These are current realities and the APC will not play politics with matters of life and our collective wellbeing as a nation.
“As a progressive party in government, we are fully focused on identifying and bringing to book the perpetrators and sponsors of this hydra-headed insecurity monster and consolidating on our visible development strides.”
“Only in safety can we enjoy the current infrastructure revolution that has witnessed the rehabilitation, construction, and reconstruction of over 13,000 kilometers of critical federal roads, construction of thousands of affordable and acceptable housing, and of course, the ongoing national railway projects gainfully connecting cities and towns across the country.”
AllNews had earlier reported that APC through Akpanudoedehe condemned the attack on the country home of the Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma, by unknown gunmen.
The statement added, “The party equally condemns the wanton attacks on police personnel and formations in Abia, Imo, Ebonyi and Anambra states, as well as Rivers State.
“We stand with the Nigeria Police Force and families of the victims in this difficult time as we mourn the deaths of innocent and dedicated security personnel simply carrying out their duty of protecting life and property.
“In Imo state, the attack on the Governor’s residence is an attack on democracy and constituted authority serving the interest of the good people of Imo state.”
It also charged security agencies to fish out the perpetrators of these attacks and their sponsors and ensure that they face the full weight of the law.
