Former President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo, on Sunday said the security challenges affecting Nigeria can be solved by Nigerians both home and abroad.
The elder statesman said Nigerians have a role to play if there would be a lasting solution to the security challenges in the country.
Obasanjo while speaking during his visit to the Ayangbunren of Ikorodu, Oba Adewale Sotobi, lamented the death of former political adviser to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Ahmed Gulak, who was shot dead in Imo State on Sunday.
The former president said the security challenges in the country also led to the kidnapping of the wife of one of his managers about three weeks ago.
He called on Nigerians to contribute their quota towards the development of the nation saying, “the current regime had done all it could to tackle security challenges in Nigeria”
