Insecurity: Seek Input Of Ex-Service Chiefs, Former Military Leaders – Bode George Counsels President Tinubu

January 31, (THEWILL) – Former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), Chief Olabode George, has advised President Bola Tinubu to call a meeting of all former service chiefs and former military leaders in the country to fashion a way out of the security challenges facing the country.

Chief George said the meeting of the former military leaders should be done immediately, just as he stressed that setting up of state police is very imperative if Nigeria is keen on getting out of the security challenge it is currently facing.

George made this known in Lagos on Wednesday, at a press conference.

He urged President Tinubu to jettison his political sentiment and seek input from the former military leaders and ex-service chiefs as a way of putting an end to insecurity, which he said is on the increase and now a threat to moving the country forward.

He said if President Tinubu is committed to moving the country forward, he should study and implement the resolutions of the 2014 National Conference which was organised by former President Goodluck Jonathan.

He said the resolutions of the conference addressed the numerous challenges facing the country.

He said if Nigeria should continue with the 1999 constitution, which is a creation of the military, progress will continue to elude the country.

“The time to revisit the issue of state police is now. The President should not shy away from it. We copied the American Constitution but we copied it halfway. In the USA, each state has its own police and manages its resources.

“Tinubu should visit the 2014 confab report. The constitution we are operating now recklessly disturbs the growth of our nation.

“The impact of community policing is unimaginable. We are at the precipice of total collapse and there is the need to revisit that constitutional conference report.

“The security situation has scared investors and some companies are moving out of the country. The President should invite elders who have been in the military for discussion on a way out and it must be done urgently.”

On the possibility of his party, the PDP, joining with other parties to form a mega party, he said that is not advisable, saying the party should remain on its own and any political party or parties that want to form mega parties are free to do so.

He said for the PDP to get it right in 2027, it should honour the zoning arrangement put on ground by the party’s founding fathers and insisted that the South should be given the opportunity to produce the presidential candidate of the party in 2027.

He said he is emphasising the zoning arrangement so that the party will not make the mistake it made in 2023.
