30 December 2018 News
The Vice Presidential candidate of the Alliance for New Nigeria, ANN, Mrs Khadijat Abdullahi, says the alleged negligence by security agencies and the Country’s porous borders has worsened the country’s security challenges.
Speaking with journalists in Jos after her advocacy tour of north central states, Mrs Abdullahi, alleged that security agencies were not proactive enough, thereby giving the insurgents the opportunity to be on offensive while the security agencies are cosigned to reactionary efforts after the damage is done.
She stated that for the situation to improve, there must be tight security at the nation’s borders to check influx of weaponry and foreigners.
Abdullahi said that the economic woes the country was going through was due to non implementation of people oriented policies to cushion the pains of Nigerians.
She stressed that lack of sincerity in the implementation of Small and Medium Enterprises SMEs that could assist poor Nigerians has led to economic hardship.
The Vice Presidential candidate assured of her Party’s resolve to prosecute anyone found guilty of stealing public funds no matter how highly placed.
Abduallahi who also spoke on alleged harassment and forceful removal of billboards of ANN gubernatorial candidate in Plateau state, said that the action would not affect the party’s chances in 2019.
The party’s gubernatorial candidate, Mr Alex Ladan said the vice presidential candidate’s visit to Plateau has further strengthened him and the party’s chances and expressed optimism that the ANN would emerge victorious in the 2019 general elections.
Mr Ladan assured Plateau citizens that his administration if elected, would run an inclusive government that carry along all Plateau citizens.
