The former Vice President shows unhappiness at the deplorable state of security in the country, saying the PDP at the set time would unveil its policies on how it would address the issue.
“I have never seen it (insecurity) this bad. I am 70 years plus, I have never seen it this bad in terms of security challenges,
in terms of economy, in terms of unemployment.
This is the worst. Why can’t you give us time? We will come up with our policies.
We will present them to Nigerians when the time comes.
We have done that before. Under PDP, we recorded the highest economic growth, the best foreign reserves, we reduced unemployment. You know that we can do it.”he said
