He said, “The security situation in the country has worsened over the last few years with Nigerians unable to travel freely on our roads and even railways, they equally feel unsafe in their homes and farms; Nigeria has never known this level of insecurity before.

“I however want to appreciate the efforts of the South-West governors and other state governors who rose up to the challenge with the introduction of Amotekun and other security initiatives to combat this menace. I once again wish to call on the President-elect to make security a priority immediately after he assumes office on May 29, 2023.

“Equally important is the issue of our economy which I believe requires urgent attention. We must immediately stem the worsening rate of unemployment in the land to curb the rising youth restiveness in different parts of the country On Saturday 18th March 2023, Nigerians will be going to the polls to elect new governors in some states and members of Houses of Assembly across the thirty-six states of the federation, I, therefore, wish to repeat our call for calm and peaceful conduct by the electorate before, during and after the elections.”
