Former Kaduna State military administrator, Col. Abubakar Danjiwa Umar, on Saturday, urged President Muhammadu Buhari to give more attention to the nagging security challenges in the country.
He advised the Federal Government to focus mainly on securing the nation and conducting a successful 2023 elections.
In his words, “The decision of the FGN to seek and get the approval of the National Council of State to conduct the National census in April 2023 must have come as a great shock to most well-meaning Nigerians.
“A country that is facing existential challenges such as unprecedented level of insecurity, collapsing economy cannot have as one of its priorities, the conduct of a National census.”
In another development, Umar lamented that despite the huge government investment in the water sector and by international organisations, water scarcity had grown to become a perennial nightmare for residents of Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
