Akeredolu spoke on Channels Television Politics Today interview programme on Tuesday.
He, therefore, asked the Federal Government to urgently tackle the deteriorating insecurity in the country.
The Ondo State governor who condemned the attack on the Benue State governor, Mr Samuel Ortom, wondered why governors would be the target of attack.
Akeredolu, who described Ortoms attack as unfortunate, backed his colleague governor’s submission that elections might be disrupted in 2023 if nothing is done to nip insecurity in the bud.
According to him “Nigerians should be worried if banditry activities reach its full-scale.
“I think Governor Ortom 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 insecurity in the country,”
With that, there is nobody that can carry out any election under that atmosphere. What is clear is that he has made a good point that the Federal Government must sit up.
“Something just has to be done now to ensure that this issue of insecurity that is escalating by the day is now nipped in the bud and deescalated as soon as possible.”
“We cannot continue to scratch the issue of insecurity on the surface. Security Chiefs must come together and provide solution to the problem. There must be swift responses to cases of insecurity at all levels.
