By Franca Joseph (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, has warned that the 2023 Polls might be threatened if the worsening insecurity situation in the country is not tackled by the Federal Government.
Akeredolu, who is also a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN, gave the warning during an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Tuesday.
The governor, who doubles as the Chairman of South-West Governors Forum, also condemned Saturday’s attack on his Benue State counterpart, Samuel Ortomon, describing it as unfortunate, and thanking God for saving Ortom’s life.
“I think he is right, definitely we cannot conduct election under an insecure environment. So if insecurity is not nipped in the bud, it will escalate and if it escalates, all of us should be worried that as at the time we are getting to 2023, we might have a full-scale banditry and other forms of insecurity in the country,” he said.
