Akpabio draws lines between politics and Insecurity

The Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio, has said that Nigeria’s current security challenge has a political undertone


Akpabio disclosed this in Abuja at the APC National Secretariat when he spoke with journalists on Thursday.

“I think most of the problems are politically motivated.

“So, we must use our binoculars to be able to look and identify the sponsors of the insecurity we’re witnessing in the country.

“What’s happening now is not Nigeria; this is un-Nigeria.

“We must do everything possible, even through advice, to make sure that Nigeria remains united,” Akpabio said, adding that it wasn’t time for a blame game.

Akpabio noted that the security challenge in the country has already assumed a worrisome dimension as it wasn’t limited to one section of Nigeria.

He said, “We’ve never in the history of this nation witnessed where people in uniform are targeted for elimination.

“That will show you that we’ve infiltrators in our midst, the security of our neighbouring countries must also remain a priority.”

The current security threats in the country keeps reaching greater heights and it is apparent in the fact of how more political figures are beginning to speak about it in one way or the other.
