Former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Olabode George, said that insecurity, hunger and anger is beyond control in the nation.
The PDP chieftain said this in an interview on Channels Television’s ‘Politics Today’ programme on Friday.
He explained that the country is in “perpetual despair” where hunger and insecurity has gone beyond control.
In his words, “The state of our nation has been completely in a shambolic situation, it is in perpetual despair and despondency.
“There is hunger in the land and there is anger in the land; the insecurity has gone beyond control.”
He stressed that after listening to President Bola Tinubu’s New Year speech, Tinubu has a lot of work to do to alleviate the insecurity state in the country.
He also cautioned the President and a chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Olusegun Osoba, saying, “So when you look at all those things; we are all Nigerians and I listened to his (Tinubu) New Year speech and I also listened to what Chief Osoba said, this is not the time to play politics, it is our nation.”
He added that Nigerians will give the President the chance to improve the country’s woes in security, saying, “He (Tinubu) has a hell of a job to do and I have listened to him. He has these eight objectives for the year, national defence, internal security, and job creation; the man who left who was my oga did a woeful job, he did not do well at all; they belong to the same party.
“So, we all Nigerians will give him a chance, let us see how he is going to handle it.
“Bola Tinubu, God will guide him.”
