The former national chairman of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Chief John Odigie Oyegun has said the present administration under President Muhammadu Buhari has not been lucky since its inception.
He said things have been very tough and rough for the country, owing to the continuous dwindling resources, unemployment, terrorism, insecurity and other negative issues that has placed the nation’s growth almost at a standstill.
While fielding questions from Journalists in his Benin City residence on how far the country has developed in 60 years since independence, the former Edo State governor stressed that he is not happy that President Buhari has not been lucky since his administration.
According to Oyegun, there have been issues dragging the country backward. On terrorism for instance, I think there are groups/somebody outside this nation who are actively involved, you can see how people are now moving and playing with AK47.
‘This is something that needs urgent and in-depth investigation. I have and will support the realization of state policing, properly integrated into the federal police. The idea of saying state governors will misuse it for political reasons is certain but that should not overshadow our general interest and safety as people.
‘Policing has to become local and main responsibilities of our state administrator, it makes perfect sense to start thinking of having it in place which should be used into federal policing’
We may not have been giving people hope for tomorrow, we pray COVID-19 will be contained for the betterment of our people. My belief is that this economic crisis will be over very soon. I’m sad he added.
