Chief Olu Falae, former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) and presidential candidate of the Alliance for Democracy (AD) in 1999, who retired from active politics last February, as the National Chairman of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) is piqued at the security challengeS, as well as the economic situation in the country.
He is also sad at the type of politics played in the country, submitting that what is obtainable at the moment is monetics, and not politics due to the abuses on the ground.
He barred his mind on other critical national issues in a chat. Excerpt:
How do you feel about the security challenge in the country?
Nobody is satisfied with the situation in Nigeria, there is so much insecurity in the land, you know what has happened to me personally, I have been a victim of kidnapping myself, you know my farm has been burnt a number of times, so what we have is a very bad situation. Of course, people say that the first responsibility of government is the security of the people, but what we have on the ground is nothing to be desired, it is not acceptable, at all.
