Presidential Debate Candidates reveals their solutions to insecurity


The candidate of the Young Progressives Party (YPP) Prof. Kingsly Moghalu said he would abolish corruption in the military if elected as president.

Moghalu said his administration would ensure high level of intelligence gathering among the locals while collaborating with neighbouring countries to tackle terrorism.

He identified bad economy as the major factor feeding insecurity in the country, saying if elected, his administration would ensure the economy booms.

Moghalu added that, “Additional policemen would be recruited, trained and equipped to create a 21st-century police force that would tackle kidnapping and other crimes.”

On his part, the candidate of the Alliance for New Nigeria (ANN) Mr Fela Durotoye said if elected, he would ensure security agencies are strengthened to do their job well.

Durotoye said under his administration, the leadership of security agencies would not be based on sentiment but competence and professionalism.

“Men and officers of various security agencies would be properly motivated with modern and standard equipment, vehicles among others.

“My administration would ensure that officers and men of the military would be properly taken care of while they are alive and their families would be catered for when they pass away.

“Under my watch, security would be in the hands of the citizens as I plan to run the participatory government with a new ideology”.

Also speaking, Prof. Oby Ezekwesili of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN) said she would send a sharp message that “there is a new sheriff in town.”

Ezekwesili said if elected, she would ensure a team for quick response and technology would be deployed to gather intelligence.

She said her administration would ensure that intelligent officers would be identified and given leadership roles to tackle insecurity.

  5. Well politics has always been a dirty game. But I think we need to changenhands and give it to the new pple coming forth to see what we can get from it. If we dong believe in the old systems, let’s give the new systems a chance

  6. Everyone always had something to say until they get their mouth punched – Mike Tyson.

    As far as I’m concerned, that debate was just a child’s play, since the two major candidates weren’t in attendance.

  25. They are all politicians and politicians know how to play with words and make them look so real. All they said are great ideas and I applaud them. We ‘ve had so many of these agendas and promises in the past and not one was achieved. We need doers

  26. this are just mere promise they always make to gain the support of the electorate , after been voted for they will forget their promises they made

  27. we have heard all these things before is no longer a news that will trigger the mass to vote, after all this when they enter the they will even become the worst candidate ever know,pls u people should come up better things.

  28. Election stories…. That is what they tell us each time for election but when you vote them in the case is different, God help us

  29. The all spoke well yesterday during the debate, this is what Buhari said when he was campaigning, now there is no security, we are insecure.
    I pray to God to give us good leader

  30. Issue of security is a serious one in this country now and All of you have spoken so well.. I really wish our president could come out of any one of you.. Young, intelligent and vibrant people.. I’m fade up with these Apc/Pdp wahala..

  32. it is politics we no this already,so you people are not the first nor second to say this

  33. This information were to be gathered by Atiku and PMB if they were around. Debate is an expository conversation.

  34. All these are politics once they enter story will change that what Buhari told us after 4years he is still bringing the same blueprint to us political politics.

  35. During campaign they promise heaven and earth but when they get to office they forget their promises

  36. Politician that is what they say when they need your vote but the moment they get there will start to implementing there own agenda

  37. If we don’t identify the cabass in this country forget about all what they are saying.
    Even past and present government meant well but the big guns are threatening them.
    Easier said than done.
    Presidential posts shouldn’t be on their minds now…..House of Assembly and House of Representative are our concerns.
    How can we hijack it from the thugs who are for themselves alone. Free me joor

  38. If i hear. All these propaganda is just for the sake of politics. Anyways, i wish them the best of luck.

  39. This good but some of them given the opportunity they will not do this, its easy said than done

  40. This this poilitical talks we have been hearing this for many years but now we doesn’t believe them any more.

  41. Oga,this one is just for talking sake,when the time go reach now,dem go even forget all these grammers dem de blow.

  42. We know all those campaign strategies. Vote them in now and tory go change. Its only God that can appoint a good person

  43. They all spoken well but its normal and common. It’s politics they would always have their strategies and sweets talks. When they are vote into power, stories changes, people will still dying, and all manner of evil will still be going.. All i pray is that God should intervain in this country

  44. The pple we are doing all this for
    Aren’t even serious
    We are der killing n stressing ourselves

  45. This z the kind if leaders we need in this country. leaders who re educated n intelligent, not only that. They are also competent. Not the ones that can’t even speak good English. Nigerias do they right thing.

  46. After promising all they can and can’t do, when elected we begin to hear things like some cabals have taken over. -the affairs of the nation.

  47. Well I hear this anytime it’s time for election. Promises here and there. But I don’t doubt that.

  48. Bad economy is not the cause of corruption but these fake promises during election campaign and bad leadership.

  49. Well, they may not be able to do any of these things when any of them wins but I still believe in a new Nigeria.. Change in the system.

  50. Well, they may not be able to do any of these things when any of them wins but I still believe in a new Nigeria.. Change in the system. Trust me.

  51. Ever since I know Nigerian politicians they have talking of security yet none of them did anything about it, I think they are all the same, we just take what we see and hope that God will help us in this county called Nigeria

  52. That is politics with their fake promises.When they enter into position. They change like chameleons. Empty promises. All to no avail

  53. None of these men nor their agenda is relevant to the country. They are just wasting their time and resources.

  54. This is when see is believing in politics. We need too see a difference in this country. We need good security

  55. That’s what bros told us in 2015 and u are still saying the same thing in 2019. U people don’t have a new strategy or what

  56. It’s easier said than done. All these are political promises and strategies for begging for votes. When they get there, they do a different thing

  57. They are just there wasting their time because they are not even recognized, buhari equally said so in 2015, but they are all fals campaign promises.

  58. You all have a good plan. But who will fulfill it. God should select this year candidate by himself. Cause men have failed this country.

  59. He identified bad economy as the major factor feeding insecurity in the country, saying if elected, his administration would ensure the economy booms.

  60. What have we heard and what have we not heard? All these have been said before. We need to actualize attention these ideas

  61. It’s unfortunate that none of would ascend the throne. But I would have loved to see either of u there but this is Nigeria where ethnicism, tribalism, nepotism and parochial politics is the order of the day. Am so sorry guys
