Musa Kwankwaso, the National Leader of the New Nigeria People’s Party, has said the military can end the current security challenges the country is grappling with, given the necessary motivation.

The former Minister of Defence said this when he spoke with journalists shortly after the NNPP National Executive Committee meeting in Abuja on Friday.

Kwankwaso said that although it was the responsibility of the Federal Government to address the security challenge, the citizens also had an important role to play by supplying vital information to security agencies.

He said, “As former Minister of Defence, a former Chief Security Officer of Kano State for eight years, somebody who has gone around and well exposed in this game of politics, I believe that tackling security challenge is now on the shoulders of the Federal Government.

“We have seen states forming some security outfits. Sometimes, you laugh. The level at which it is today is at the level of the Nigerian military, and anything short of that wouldn’t work.

“And everybody must work together to make sure there is peace in this country.

“Some of us who are from the villages and even towns we can remember how our people were going to farms. Now, people cannot go to the farm. They are also being chased from their villages and towns.

“Our children are daily abused and taken away by criminals and bandits in hundreds.”

The presidential candidate of the NNPP in the 2023 general elections said that his party had what it takes to address the problem and other challenges facing the country if given the opportunity by Nigerians.

Kwankwaso said the NNPP was the only hope for Nigerian citizens as the All Progressives Congress and the Peoples Democratic Party had failed the people.
