Former presidential aide, Doyin Okupe, has said now is the time for Nigeria to have a national summit to profer solutions to insecurity in the country.

In a post on Twitter titled ‘Insecurity And Galloping Inflation,’ Okupe said productivity has declined in the country which is visible in the agricultural sector affected by the activities of herdsmen and bandits.

He said the Nigerian government must urgently find solutions to insecurity before it snuffs the life out of the people.

According to Okupe, “Whatever economic model subsists in the country, the fact is our productivity is on a steep decline nationally.
This is more visible in the agriculture sector.


“Insurgency, Banditry and Herdsmen/farmers clashes have virtually sent farmers away from their farms while open grazing itself have devastated farmlands across the nation.

“Inflation rate of 18+% is a terrible bad news for the managers of our economy.

“When coupled with ever-increasing food prices, a dual evil of hunger and poverty is unleashed on the populace.

“The Nigerian government must urgently find solutions to insecurity before it snuffs the life out of our people and threaten our very existence.

“An all-inclusive national summit on proferring sustainable solutions to insecurity is NOW a national imperative.”
