Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has issued a compelling plea to President Bola Tinubu, urging him to take immediate action in addressing the escalating security crisis in Nigeria.
The call comes in the aftermath of the brutal murder of Elesun of Esun Ekiti and Onimojo of Imojo Ekiti, who were attacked and killed by suspected bandits while returning from a security meeting in Irele-Ekiti.
Expressing deep concern, Peter Obi, former governor of Anambra State, took to his official platform on Monday to highlight the severity of the situation.
In a direct message to President Tinubu, Obi stated, “We are saddened by the report that Elesun of Esun Ekiti and Onimojo of Imojo Ekiti were murdered earlier today, cause of death: Insecurity and Tinubu.”
Obi’s plea implores President Tinubu to “wake up from his sleeping bed” and address the urgent security challenges facing the nation.
The statement emphasizes the critical need for immediate action, warning of the potential consequences if decisive steps are not taken promptly. In a stark message, Obi concluded, “Don’t speak up today. Tomorrow, insecurity might consume you or a loved one.” The call serves as a stark reminder of the pressing need for comprehensive security measures to safeguard the nation from further deterioration.
