Yusuf Ahmed-Baba, the running mate of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has said that both himself and Obi have solutions to end insecurity in Nigeria.
Yusuf, however, failed to say what the plans to end the insecurity were, noting that there was no point talking about the plans as so many politicians had talked and failed.
Yusuf spoke on Monday on Channels Television and also accused the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) of failing to tackle insecurity in the country.
Yusuf said he was ashamed that Buhari failed to secure Nigeria despite all his promises to end insecurity.
Yusuf was speaking on the programme tagged ‘Politics Today’, and reacting to how Obi’s administration, if he won the elections, would tackle insecurity.
Yusuf said, “We do, what have Nigerians not heard in the past? What has the All Progressives Congress not told Nigerians? What did Buhari not say about restoring security? Are Nigerians not tired of hearing people talk and doing the opposite?
“Peter Obi and I are a completely a different mix, that is why we are seeking this opportunity and when we get it, we will deliver.
“The importance of talking has been destroyed by this administration, I feel ashamed to talk because someone like Buhari has talked and he failed.
“I don’t want to talk but act, we have the solution and by the grace of God, Nigerians will be safe and secured.”
Insecurity has been the most sensitive situation for every Nigerian at the moment, with many staying on guards as they go about their daily activities.
It is expected that electorate will be keenly interested in which presidential candidate has the best plan to tackle insecurity, and how to execute such.
Yusuf was also asked on how he and Obi planned to address the education sector which has been married by persistent strikes.
He said the way to end persistent strike actions of the Academic Staff Union of Universities in Nigeria was consistent negotiations, adding that the Obi’s administration would be committed to welfare of lecturers.
