Insecurity: I ‘ll Drive From Abuja To Kaduna Without Security – Festus Keyamo

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Festus Keyamo, minister of state for labor and employment, says he can drive from Abuja to Kaduna without a security escort.

Keyamo stated this on Tuesday in a pre-recorded interview aired on Channels TV.

The African Examiner writes that the 155km Kaduna-Abuja highway is one of the feared roads as it has seen several attacks by bandits who block the road to kill and abduct passengers.

Keyamo, who is also the All Progressives Congress (APC) campaign council spokesperson, when responding to questions on the state of security in Nigeria, stated that he can comfortably drive on the road without security aides.

“Some people do, I can do it. I can do it,” Keyamo said repeatedly.

“I saw headlines last week saying that I said insecurity has been brought to an all-time low by Buhari. I didn’t say so. It’s still the season of the wrong headlines. I said what we met on the ground, Boko Haram in the north-east. I was specific and so they quoted me generally to say Boko Haram and insecurity throughout the whole country. I only said Boko Haram in the north-east, it has not been totally wiped out, but we have reduced this significantly.

“All the roads that lead to Chibok and Damboa in Borno, they are now passable.

“The issue of the farmer-herder crisis came to a height between 2017 and 2020. The World Terrorism Index said so. Not me. The body also said the attacks reduced so much in 2021. And further reduced again now in 2022. So, it’s a downward spiral in terms of farmer-herder crisis.

“In terms of banditry and kidnapping, they are on the rise in the north-west and some parts of the middlebelt. I have admitted that.”
