Former President Goodluck Jonathan says insecurity has worsened in Nigeria since he left Aso Rock and handed over power to President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress ( APC).
Yaahoo Journalist reports that the former President made this comment when he paid a condolence visit to Reuben Fasoranti, the leader of Afenifere, a Yoruba socio-cultural group, whose daughter, Funke, was killed by gunmen on the Benin-Ore road last week.
Speaking on Tuesday, Jonathan lampooned the administration of President Buhari over the spate of insecurity in Nigeria.
His words: “The issue of security must be approached from a different dimension. We cannot continue the old way because it is getting out of hand. We hope the federal and state governments will do something about it.
“Every generation face problems and this generation must find ways to solve these problems. Every government faces problem.
“The first commercial kidnapping, because it involved money, happened in 2006 when I was the governor of Bayelsa state. From that time, it moved to terrorism in the north. Now, it is a major problem in the country.
“The federal government in conjunction with state government must design a different approach to this issue.
“I was there as president and security challenge was there but now, it is getting worse every day and we can’t continue to use the same old method.”
