In his words “The issue of security in Nigeria, especially during the election period, I am quite aware that the security agencies will make sure elections hold nationwide and we have the assurances especially from the Police, DSS and the Army where the Chief of Army Staff, (COAS)Lt Gen Farouk Yahaya had earlier assured Nigerians of the Army’s readiness to provide security.

“For the terrorist activities of the IPOB in the South East, even though they used to strike but most of their threats are empty. They just want to instill fear in the State and the citizens.I am also sure the security forces will not allow them go unchecked during the forthcoming election.
