- A former minister of information, Jerry Gana, claimed that the president Buhari’s administration has failed to provide security for Nigerians
- Gana declared that constitution of the country says the security and safety of people is the primary responsibility of any government
- He, however, noted that Nigerians are tired of the ruling APC saying that SDP is the alternative
The former chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Jerry Gana, declared that the president Muhammadu Buhari’s administration has failed to provide security for Nigerians, which is the primary responsibility of the government.
Daily Sun reports that Gana who is running on the platform of the Social Democratic Party declared that he is seeking to run for the office of the president not because of his personal ambition.
He said: ''I want to assure the people of the federal republic of Nigeria that my seeking to run for the office of the president is not driven by ambition.
''I have been in politics for nearly 40 years, I have been a senator, I had the opportunity of been the chairman of MAMSA, mobilising Nigerians for democracy and I succeeded in doing that in 1993 when we had the freest, fairest and most credible election on June 12, 1993.
''I had the opportunity of serving the minister of Agriculture and Natural Resources, minister of Information and culture, minister of co-operation and integration in Africa and political adviser to the president of Nigeria. Having advised other presidents, I now want to advice myself.
''Every patriotic Nigerian with the sense of compassion knows that the country needs to be rescued. The nation is going through a very difficult time, unprecedented insecurity across the land, people killing with such horrible intensity, and the inhuman ways in which it is done.
''We however want to assure Nigerians that if we work together, we can give the country the right leadership, Nigerians are wonderful people that want to live together, the security will not only improve but also be a thing of the past.
''We lived together and related together in the past but today, we claim to love God and our religion but don’t love our neighbours.

''What is going on now is not religious, but a real horrible contest for control of resources in Nigeria, particularly the land resources and the people of Nigeria will not take it. We are firm and resolute because there are no second class citizens. We are all first class citizens of the federal republic of Nigeria.
''Our constitution says that the security and welfare of the people is the primary purpose of government. Any government under any rulership that cannot secure Nigerians and ensure that Nigeria is peaceful and secured, is not worthy to even be called a government.
''Therefore, Nigerians are tired of the APC and SDP is the alternative, SDP will win, govern well, unify Nigerians and Nigeria will be at peace again.''
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had reported that Nigeria former minister of information, Jerry Gana, said the ruling APC failed Nigerians woefully.
