Presidential candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC), Dumebi Kachikwu, is delivering an address on the state of the nation today in Abuja.
Mr. Kachikwu will be addressing the National Executive Committee (NEC) and Board of Trustees (BOT) at a meeting of the party in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
The presidential hopeful is professed to be very sound on national issues and on several occasions called on President Muhammadu Buhari to resign over his perceived “inability to curb worsening insecurity in the country.”
He also solicited national prayers for peace and security in the country as the 2023 polls draw near, just as he urged credible leaders to reunite the country for progress.
Earlier in the week while felicitating with Muslim faithful on the occasion of this year’s Eid-el-Kabir celebration, offered prayers for peace, security and smooth transition in 2023.
Kachikwu had also admonished the Federal Government to rejig and retool the nation’s security architecture to discharge its duties efficiently, whilst looking forward to the emergence of capable leaders to reunite the country and put it on the path of progress.
“There can be no development in an environment devoid of peace and security. Therefore, all Nigerians, including adherents of the various religious faiths, have a role to play through the provision of intelligence to security agencies and seeking help from God through prayers.
“This is the only country we have. We owe it to ourselves as citizens, whether in the position of authority or not, to work to secure our nation.
“However, the Federal Government with its all-encompassing powers, both civil and military, has a greater role to play by living up to its oath of office and allegiance,” he added.
