Peter Obi speaks on regional security

A former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, has urged the Federal Government (FG) to allow region-like security system in the country.

Peter Obi, who wants the FG to come out genuinely to tackle the issue of insecurity, disclosed this yesterday while speaking during an interview on Channels Television.

He explained that the move would help control the myriads of security challenges the country faces.

Obi said, “Allow some region-like state security system to function.

“The government has to come out genuinely to tackle the issue of security of lives and property by investing in them.

“I served as a governor, and when I found out that we had a security issue, I decided that every community in Anambra State must have their own security outfit funded and supported by the government.

“If you go to Anambra State, every community has a pickup for security. In fact, some own two or three. A community like Nnewi owns four or five because it is critical.”
