GBENGA Olawepo-Hashim, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has said issues of national security are more serious than the 2023 general elections.
He said this in a statement on Wednesday in Abuja.
The former presidential aspirant urged the Federal Government to pay equal attention to national security as Nigerians deserve to live in a safe environment before thinking of casting their vote in the elections.
“In the past two years we have spoken on the nation’s security challenges and offered concrete suggestions on how to confront them, but all suggestions have been ignored. Now is the time for patriots and statesmen and friends of Nigeria to rally and defend the ideals of our republic, the ideals of peace, and the ideals of modernity and civilization.
“Presently, it is an understatement to say we are at a turning point in our history when terrorist forces have technically surrounded our nation’s capital highlighting the severity of our national security challenge. Despite the offensive of the military to clean up the bushes in the capital, the axis surrounding the capital is still in the hands of the enemy and they retain the capacity, flexibility, and initiative to launch attacks at any place and time of their choice.
“We should never surrender through in-action, limited action or wrong and slow response to the urgent threat confronting our father land, our response must be deep, broad and all encompassing,” he said.
