Insecurity in Nigeria politically motivated, says Akpabio
Minister of Niger Delta affairs, Godswill Akpabio has stated that insecurity in Nigeria is politically motivated.
This was stated by the minister, Akpabio on Thursday at the APC national secretariat in Abuja.
He said insecurity has assumed a worrisome dimension as it is no longer limited to one section of the country.
“I think most of the problems are politically motivated,” he said.
“So, we must use our binoculars to be able to look and identify the sponsors of the insecurity we are witnessing in the country.
“What is happening now is not Nigeria; this is unNigeria. We must do everything possible, even through advice, to make sure that Nigeria remains united.
“We have never, in the history of this nation, witnessed where people in uniform are targeted for elimination.
“That will show you that we have infiltrators in our midst, the security of our neighbouring countries must also remain a priority. ”
He also said it is not time for a blame game.
He restated his confidence in Mai Mala Buni-led APC caretaker and extra-ordinary convention planning committee.
The minister said he was at the secretariat to meet with the party’s leadership and to offer his advice on how to move the country and the party forward.
Akpabio said the committee was doing well in repositioning the party and addressing areas of discord.
“We have a lot of issues that I think the party can help to resolve, and all hands must be on the deck for us to solve our problems,” he said.
