We cannot tackle insecurity with a structurally imbalanced federal system – Governor Obaseki

Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State

Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State has stated that Nigerians must work collectively to rescue the nation from insecurity and other challenges.

Obaseki spoke when the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) South-South Zone led by its National Vice Chairman, Chief Dan Orbih, visited him in Benin, the capital of Edo State.

The governor blamed mismanagement of the economy for the numerous challenges face the nation

“We run a federation; we have three tiers of government – Federal, state and local governments. Why should security be exclusive to the federal level? What happened to the other two? Until we address that structural imbalance, we are not going to be able to deal with security at its core,” he said.
