..Says it should hire foreign mercenaries
The National Chairman of the Action Democratic Party, (ADP), Alh. Yabagi Yusuf Sani, has suggested that the Nigerian government could use mercenaries in its fight against insecurity since the problems appeared to overwhelm the nation’s military and security outfits.
Yabagi Sani, who was the Presidential candidate of the ADP in 2023, spoke in an interview with journalists in Kaduna weekend.
Baring his mind regarding the solution to insecurity, Yabagi Yusuf Sani said “insecurity needs an intelligent approach that you must first all accept that you have failed. And when you know that you have failed, what do you do; look for help.
“The security situation in this country requires us to outsource; it could be mercenaries, it could be allying with other governments to stop this problem”.
While reacting to the age limit for the presidential candidates as suggested by former military president, Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida, he said that IBB’s assertion might be the guiding principle towards 2023.
On how he would remedy Nigeria’s socio-economic problems if he happens to succeed Buhari in 2023, he said ” it is very easy. I always say that Nigeria is the easiest country to govern. It is the easiest, mark my words, and I will tell you why.
”All we need is a leader with skills. We have Nigerians with skills who are making it outside the shores of this country. If you at countries that we call developed countries, they are enjoying the services of Nigerians in their hospitals, government, whatever. If you go to Canada you find Nigerians occupying the third position in their government. You go to the UK it is the same thing and we call them developed countries. The brain drain in Nigeria is alarming”.
He stated that he was of the view that neither APC nor PDP could save Nigeria, adding that “President Muhammadu Buhari is an individual that I respect a lot before what is happening today”.
