Festus Keyamo Speaks On Insecurity In Nigeria

The minister, who also doubles as the All Progressives Congress (APC) campaign council spokesperson, spoke on Tuesday in a pre-recorded interview aired on Channels TV.

Keyamo said that despite the insecurity on the Kaduna-Abuja highway, he can comfortably travel through the road without any security escort.

“Some people do, I can do it. I can do it,” Keyamo muttered repeatedly when asked if he can drive on the road without security aides.

He added, “I saw headlines last week saying that I said insecurity has been brought to an all-time low by Buhari. I didn’t say so. It’s still the season of wrong headline. I said what we met on the ground, Boko Haram in the north-east.

“I was specific and so they quoted me generally to say Boko Haram and insecurity throughout the whole country. I only said Boko Haram in the north-east, it has not been totally wiped out, but we have reduced this significantly.

“All the roads that lead to Chibok and Damboa in Borno, they are now passable.”

“The issue of the farmer-herder crisis came to a height between 2017 and 2020. The World Terrorism Index said so. Not me. The body also said the attacks reduced so much in 2021. And further reduced again now in 2022. So, it’s a downward spiral in terms of farmer-herder crisis.

“In terms of banditary and kidnapping, they are on the rise in the north-west and some parts of the middlebelt. I have admitted that.”

KanyiDaily recalls that Festus Keyamo said the APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu is the best candidate to sell and he will rule like President Muhammadu Buhari if elected president in 2023.
