A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun State, Hon. Olatunbosun Oyintiloye, has called on Nigerians to support President Bola Tinubu in the fight against insecurity rather than criticisms that can distract him.
Oyintiloye told newsmen in Osogbo that the rate of insecurity in the country had become alarming and that the development called for a sober reflection.
The former member of the defunct APC Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) said this is a period Nigerians needed to rally round the president and its administration to find solutions to the security challenges facing the country.
While condemning the recent killing, banditry, terrorism, kidnapping and other criminalities by men of the underworld across the country, Oyintiloye said there was no doubt that the president was doing everything humanly possible to restore peace in the country.
According to him, this is a trying period for all Nigerians, who are saddened with the latest multiple killings and kidnapping ravaging the country.
He called for bottom-up approach security framework that would integrate every strata of the society in assisting security agencies to combat insecurity in their domains.
His words, “The recent release of N50 billion security vote to five northern states was a show of commitment by the president to minimise the spate of insecurity, but we need to extent the gesture across the country”.
Oyintiloye also urged the president to encourage governors as the chief security officers of their states to rise to the occasion to nip the insecurity in the bud by creating community security network to support conventional security agencies in their various domains.
