Oyo CAN Chairman, Joshua Akinyemiju, and the professor made the call, yesterday, in separate interviews with The Guardian in Ibadan.

The CAN boss, who is a retired military officer, said the President must sit tight and secure the country urgently.

He lamented that commiserating with people, discussing 2027 politics and sharing money amid killings were not what the country needed now.

“The President should show some seriousness. Even if he can only record marked achievements on security in the next one year, people will be happy. He should return Nigeria to where we were years back security-wise.

“Those years when we could move in the night and go anywherewe wanted. Just commiserating with people, discussing 2027 politics and sharing money when people are being killed are not what we need now,” he added.

On his part, Aremu said: “With the euphoria that trailed Tinubu’s coming and the marching order given to his appointees. one would think there is a strategic road map to deal with insecurity in Plateau, Benue, Taraba and other states.

“The attacks are simultaneous, which shows that the problem is hydra-headed and multifaceted. The government must be dynamic, strategic and more vociferous in curbing the menace. It must work on intelligence. There must be concerted efforts to ensure a drastic reduction in the rate of insecurity. Timeline is a must.”

MEANWHILE, the National Publicity Secretary of Oodua People’s Congress (OPC), New Era, SinaAkinpelu, said accurate data is key in securing the country.

Akinpelu said: “First, if Tinubu is sincere and ready to serve and secure the common Nigerian, he needs to conduct a census and gather a reliable database to ascertain the real Nigerians.”
