Zulum who spoke on the topic: “Security and economic growth: Leadership in challenging times,” noted that: “The issue of power rotation is a covenant between us hence the need to shift the power to the south.”
He said it is time when every part of the country should be given a sense of belonging, adding “the time has come for Nigeria to do the right thing”.
Zulum also said to fix national problems, “There must be a clear demarcation between competency and loyalty and our leaders must be chosen based on performance”.
He added: “I would advocate as a starting point that good governance is the heart and soul of security and development. Bad governance will spread insecurity and destroy the possibility of development as trust is broken between the elected and the electorate.
“A weak system breeds corruption and in order to survive, people will try whatever means to circumvent due processes and over time this will lead to insecurity.
“The search for alternative means of survival that is not legal constitutes insecurity.”
