The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), finally admitted on Monday that insecurity in the country is real, promising that President Muhammadu Buhari and his administration will soon deal with those behind it.
The party, which vowed that it would not play politics with human lives, made the aadmittance in a statement by its National Secretary, Senator John Akpanudoedehe, in Abuja.
The statement read: “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.”
Condoling with those affected by the security incidents, APC also appealed to Nigerians to unite against insecurity and criminality.
“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”, the party said.
