There's an urgent need for the federal government to take this honest advice from Ortom and speedily wage war against these criminals. Nigerians cannot continue to be killed like chickens. These continued attacks breed fears among other citizens, and it negatively affects their economical contribution to the country.
Intensifying efforts and mapping out new approaches against bandits as prayed by Ortom is by all means the important step the federal government needs to do immediately. We can continue to live in denial that the current effort of the government is not producing the desired results. It's pertinent that Ortom's advice is heeded to the letters.
For Nigeria to overcome inflation and experience economic boom, it is necessary that developed strategies are employed by the government against all insurgents for peace to reign as advised by Ortom.
