He lamented that virtually every part of the country is under siege and is threatened by terrorists and bandits who are seizing Nigeria’s sovereignty, pointing out that “No one is truly safe in his or her home, schools, worship centers, places of works and on the roads”.

On the 2023 general elections, the governor urged public office seekers to put the unity and peace of Nigeria first above personal ambitions.

While canvassing for a free, fair and credible elections, the governor reiterated that efforts must be geared towards effective security for all so as “To guarantee an unhindered or unimpeded conduct of the forthcoming elections.”
