Tinubu Needs Support to Curb Insecurity, Says Oyintiloye
A Chieftain of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun State, Olatunbosun Oyintiloye, has advised Nigerians to support President Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the fight against insecurity in the country and stop negative criticism that can distract him.
While speaking with Journalists in Osogbo, yesterday, Oyintiloye noted that the rate of insecurity in the country was becoming alarming, saying the development called for sober reflection.
He affirmed that this was a period when Nigerians needed to rally round the president and his administration to find a common solution to the various insecurity challenges facing the country.
Oyintiloye, a former member of the defunct APC Presidential Campaign Council (PCC), who condemned the recent killings, banditry, terrorism, kidnapping and other criminalities by men of the underworld across the country, said there was no doubt that the president was doing everything humanly possible to restore peace to the country.
He stressed that this is a trying period for all Nigerians, and advised people to take solace in God, while the government fashion out strategies to address the situation, instead of negative criticism and names calling by the leaders of the opposition parties, which is not the way forward, and that will not solve the problem.
“What we need at this critical period is for us, as stakeholders, to come together, irrespective of our political affiliation, religion or tribe, and give the present administration the needed boost and encouragement.
“Security is the collective responsibility of everyone, and that is why I am appealing to leaders of the opposition parties to stop playing cheap politics with security issues and narratives that can divide the country,” he stated.
Oyintiloye commended the president for prompt approval of funds to the security agencies for the purchase of modern equipment to fight insecurity.
