Ex-Police Chief Slams Nigerian Politicians For Discussing 2023 Election Instead Of Insecurity

Felix Ogbaudu, a retired Assistant Inspector-General of Police, has chastised Nigerian politicians for focusing their efforts on the politics of 2023 rather than real issues like food scarcity and insecurity. 

"Politicians have not been helpful in the effort to address the various difficulties Nigeria has, particularly the issue of insecurity and rising food prices," Mr. Ogbaudu added.

In an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja, on Sunday, October 10, 2021, the former police chief said that instead of putting "the issue of zoning" at the top of their priority list, leaders should sit up and address important issues.

"Rather than emphasizing methods to provide solutions to all of our problems, they are debating where the presidency should be in 2023,"

"Is that the most pressing challenge at this time, when insecurity in this country is at an all-time high?" He inquired.

In recent months, inflation and scarcity have intensified across the country, pushing the cost of foods and other commodities such as rice, beans, bread, and cooking gas beyond the reach of most Nigerian households.

President Muhammadu Buhari, on the other hand, blamed rising food costs on intermediaries in his Independence Day speech.

Insecurity in Nigeria is alarming and worrisome. Unknown gunmen are rampaging in the east while bandits continue to operate in the north.
