General Ihejirika Opens Up

Former Chief of Army Staff, Gen. Azubuike Ihejirika (retd.) has bared his mind on the state of the nation.

He said; “I joined politics to be able to contribute my quota as a former security chief toward the peace, security and unity of the country.”

“I need a platform to make myself available for service both at the state and national levels.”

“I did not join the All Progressives Congress under pressure or to evade probe by the government.”

“I left office at a time Boko Haram was building up and we did our best to stem the tide.”

“I have availed myself of available opportunities, including the Annual COAS Conference by the Ministry of Defence, to offer advice on how the nation’s security challenges can be surmounted.”

“I can say that a lot has been achieved by the Armed Forces in tackling Boko Haram insurgency.”

“The APC-led Federal Government has laid a solid foundation for the growth and development of the country.”

“It will not be right for anyone to say that APC has not made any meaningful impact since it formed the government in 2015.”

“Governance is like a building block. When the foundation has been properly laid, one can now build on it.”

“I’m sure that APC has made substantial efforts toward national development since it took over power.”

“It is for the next administration to build on the achievements recorded by the present government.”

“Roads and railway infrastructure and other development initiatives are some of the achievements of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.”

“I hail the federal government’s interventions in agriculture, using the Central Bank of Nigeria to drive a revolution in the sector.”

“There is, however, room for improvement in all sectors of governance in the country.”

“Greater success against insecurity can be achieved, with necessary logistics support and incentives by the government to the security agencies.”

“Once these measures are taken care of, we can be sure that security will improve tremendously.”
