Former Peoples Democratic Party, Deputy National Chairman, Bode George, has charged President Bola Tinubu to wake up and tackle the insecurity challenges confronting Nigeria.
This was as George expressed pity for Tinubu over the “deluge of crises” before him.
Addressing journalists in his Lugard office in Lagos on Wednesday, George urged the president to assemble elders and retired military officers to devise solutions to tackle the current security challenges.
According to him, the high level of insecurity has further underscored the need to have a state police and “Tinubu must not shy away from that.”
He said, “We are failing on security and I want to call on the President to invite all elders to come for a discussion. The issue of insecurity has become a national calamity.
“The President has to wake up. I pity him because he has this deluge of crises. Unfortunately, he cannot complain because it is the same party that is in power.
“The whole nation is in a state of quagmire. This is not an issue of APC or PDP, everybody is affected.”
