The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, says the current security challenges facing the country require serious management, evaluation and dialogue.
Tinubu said this on Tuesday night while fielding questions from State House reporters after a closed-door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at his residence in the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
As usual, Tinubu was accompanied by the first Interim National Chairman of the APC and former governor of Osun State, Chief Bisi Akande.
The former governor of Lagos State said the way out of the current quagmire called for cooperation, understanding, determination, effective security and information, stressing that no President will want his country in chaos and his citizens exposed to banditry and danger.
Tinubu, while speaking on the reason for the visit, said: “It’s to generally review the perceptions going on outside there and equally focus on the security across the country more.
“He will have more information than we have, but we are his ears close to the ground and we have to exchange views so that a better Nigeria is grounded. That’s all.”
Way out of security challenges
On the best way forward in view of the current security situation, he said: “The best way is what we are doing; coming together to reduce banditry, to move for unity and be able to bring a better Nigeria to the people.
“The welfare of our people is extremely important.
“And yes, every nation will go through these curves and difficult times.
“How we communicate it to the people, what are the areas to help make it easier for people to bear, those are ideas on how to be able to change the leadership of the country.”
