We Can Deal with Insecurity in Nigeria- APGA Chair
The National Chairman of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Victor Oye, has said if the party is given a chance to rule, it will tackle the nation’s security challenges.
Oye stated this during his appearance on the Channels Television program Political Paradigm. He noted that the party has recorded success ruling Anambra State and can do much more at the national level.
“What has PDP and APC offered to Nigerians? Nothing! In Anambra, see what we have done. If you give APGA to Nigeria, we will change Nigeria,” he said, “We know what to do. One, we will be transparent in running the system. We will be pragmatic. We will have a shared vision.
“We can deal with insecurity in Nigeria. It is a very simple thing. The first step is for the Federal Government to show sincerity in how they are running the country’s affairs.”
The chair revealed that Governor Chukwuma Soludo of Anambra State is the only APGA elected governor in Nigeria.
He noted that in a bid to curb security challenges in the state, the governor had on Monday declared a sit-at-home in Anambra and offered amnesty to pro-Biafra agitators still in hideouts. The governor, he said, has also proposed a Peace and Reconciliation Committee, which will address “all areas of sincere challenge, including interfacing with the Federal Government on behalf of all prisoners of conscience.”
Oye further lamented that the Federal Government is not paying attention to the needs of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU)
“Government should pay attention to the needs of the people. Provide quality education. Look at the ongoing ASUU Strike. The Federal Government does not care about ASUU.
“How much will it cost the government to care for ASUU’s needs? And we spend billions to pay legislators. The Federal Government needs to address the issue immediately,” Oye added.
