ormer President, Goodluck Jonathan has recalled how the insecurity of the nation gave him sleepless nights during his administration.
Jonathan made the disclosure this weekend during the commissioning of a 22-kilometre road project, the Yola-Wukari roadin Taraba State. The dualised Yola-Wukari road encompasses six pedestrian bridges and a flyover bridge.
He said; “When I was the president of Nigeria, the insecurity of the nation did give me sleepless nights. Sometimes even while I am in the church, my ADC will bring a phone to show me how people are being murdered or kidnapped, and that gave me serious headache.
“As I came into the Jalingo airport, I saw the Director of DSS and I quickly asked him ‘how is Taraba State security wise?’ and he told me ‘Taraba is relatively peaceful.’”
Thanking the people of the state for choosing to live in peace, he stated, “I believe insecurity is the handiwork of the citizens and the people of Taraba have chosen to live peacefully and you are enjoying it. It is not the business of the federal or state governments alone.”
