Former President General Abdusalami Abubakar, on Thursday, observed that Nigeria has continued to face various security challenges due to the high level of unemployment in the country.

According to Abubakar, the fact that majority of the youths are not gainfully employed, coupled with the apparent lack of a robust economic base in the nation was responsible for kidnap, terrorism, armed robbery, agitations and other criminalities that the current government continued to grapple with.

Abubakar, while speaking after a courtesy visit to Governor Seyi Makinde at governor’s office, Ibadan, urged the President Muhammadu Buhari led the government to provide the needed economic base and get Nigerians engaged to stem the current security challenges in the country.

The elder statesman further urged Nigerians to help the security agencies in their effort to rid Nigeria of crimes by providing them with relevant information and reporting any suspicious move in their neighbourhood.

“We cannot leave the issue of peace to the government alone. Each and every one of us has a role to play in trying to ensure that they pass any information that they think will be helpful. If you see strange faces in your area or those people who want to make trouble, it is your civic right to report such individuals.

“However, the government, on its part, should try to provide economic base and activity for the individuals so that individuals will be involved in making life comfortable for themselves so they wouldn’t have any time to go and cause trouble,” Abubakar said.

On his efforts to ensure the security of the state, Governor Seyi Makinde said he had begun gathering data on the existing security architecture, with a view to identifying leakages and implementing necessary changes.

He further assured that changes in the security architecture will be witnessed in the coming days.
