How Nigerian military can end security challenge — Kwankwaso

A former Minister of Defence, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, says the military has the capacity to end the current security challenges facing the country, given the necessary motivation.

Kwankwaso, also the National Leader of New Nigeria People’s Party, stated this when he spoke with newsmen in Abuja,

He spoke with the newshounds shortly after the NNPP National Executive Committee meeting.

He said although it was the responsibility of the Federal Government to address the security challenge, Nigerians also had a crucial role to play by supplying vital information to security agencies.

He said: “As a former Minister of Defence, a former Chief Security Officer of Kano State for eight years, somebody who has gone around and well exposed in this game of politics, I believe that tackling the security challenge is now on the shoulders of the Federal Government.

“We have seen states forming some security outfits. 

“Sometimes you laugh. 

“The level at which it is today, is at the level of the Nigerian military and anything short of that wouldn’t work.

“And everybody must work together to make sure there is peace in this country.

“Some of us who are from the villages and even towns, we can remember how our people were going to farms. 

“Now, people cannot go to the farm. 

“They are also being chased from their villages and towns.

“Our children are daily abused and taken away by criminals and bandits in hundreds.”
