Jonathan visits Pa Reuben, says insecurity getting worse under Buhari
The issue of security must be approached from a different dimension. We cannot continue the old way because it is getting out of hand.Jonathan advised.
Former President Goodluck Jonathan has joined other Nigerians to lent his voice to the increasing challenges of insecurity, barely 24 hours former President Olusgeun Obasanjo raised alarm over the high level of insecurity in the country,
Jonathan made this remark When he paid a condolence visit to Reuben Fasoranti, leader of Afenifere, in Akure, Ondo state capital, on Tuesday, the ex-president said insecurity is getting worse under President Muhammadu Buhari.
Although he did not mention the name of Buhari, he clearly referred to the government headed by his successor.
He challenged the Buhari led government to rise up, seek new strategies to tackle insecurity, adding that one could not continue doing old things and expect new results.
In his words: “The issue of security must be approached from a different dimension. We cannot continue the old way because it is getting out of hand. We hope the federal and state governments will do something about it,” he said.
“Every generation face problems and this generation must find ways to solve these problems. Every government faces problem. The first commercial kidnapping, because it involved money, happened in 2006 when I was the governor of Bayelsa state. From that time, it moved to terrorism in the north. Now, it is a major problem in the country.
“The federal government in conjunction with state government must design a different approach to this issue. I was there as president and security challenge was there but now, it is getting worse everyday and we can’t continue to use the same old method.” Jonathan said.
I was at the residence of Pa Reuben Fasoranti at Akure, Ondo State, to sympathise with his family on the death of his daughter, Mrs. Funke Olakunrin. May God heal all grieving hearts and grant the soul of the departed eternal rest. pic.twitter.com/lZWEa21QrW

Baba, may God comfort you and your family and grant you the fortitude to bear the loss, even as we pray that the Almighty returns peace to Nigeria. My family and I offer you our deepest solidarity now and always. We also extend our arm in love to Afenifere.
