Senator Ekweremadu urges Nigerian government to seek foreign help to secure the country

Former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, has urged the federal government not to be ashamed of approaching countries that have the capacity to help Nigeria secure her sovereignty, the citizenry as well as protect its nascent democracy.

Ekweremadu stated this when he performed the inauguration of Abonnema Ring Road in Akuku Toru Local Government Area of the State on Thursday.

This is as he said Governor Nyesom Wike’s administration has demonstrated equity and justice to Rivers people.

“We should not be ashamed to learn from our colleagues on what to do. If we need help, we must seek help from whoever we can get help from and that’s the only way we can develop.

“Today, we are challenged as a country in terms of security. Out of sheer national pride, we have not been able to accept help and assistance from those who know better, who can help us to secure this country.

“This is an opportunity for me to call on our leaders, just like I am saying that other States should learn from Rivers State, we in Nigeria must also accept assistance from other countries in order to secure our boarders, secure our democracy, secure our place and secure the citizens of this country.

“That is the only way to go. We must learn from those who have done better than us,” he added.

Wike stated that the continued inauguration of completed projects in the state has silenced critics, and members of the opposition party, the All Progressives Congress.
