“My advise to the government is to shun nepotism and all kinds of things that will not make Nigeria to be among the great nations.
“The insecurity of the nation is something very unfortunate but my believe is that it could be stemmed when the government provide job opportunities. Many of the people involved in these unruly acts are doing so out of desperation. When you look at other countries that have good social welfare packages, such things are minimal.
“Our government should provide means of livelihood by creating job opportunities to the young people I believe when they are occupied, there will be no time to engage in things that is dangerous to the nation.
