The Vice President of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria for the South-South zone, Bishop Simeon Okah, has called on the Federal Government to address the spate of insecurity in the country to prevent a recurrence of the 2020 #EndSARS protest.

Okah described the raging security problems across the country as disturbing and assuming an alarming rate.

Speaking in Warri, Delta State, on Saturday the PFN leader expressed displeasure over the increase in crime, adding that the government should wade in before the situation got out of hand.

He also urged the governors of the various states to stop the blame game and rejig their internal security apparatuses to flush out the criminals hibernating in their respective domains.

Okah added, “Should the Federal Government wait, doing nothing concrete on the massive youth unemployment ravaging the country, and allowing these restive youths to go all out into the streets and embark on a second nationwide #EndSARS protest, I will not hesitate to put on my jeans and T-shirt and join them (protesters).

“During the (former president) Goodluck Jonathan era, governors in the North blamed South-South governors and leaders, for not doing enough to curtail militancy. Now, it is their turn, as Boko Haram and bandits continue to ravage their domains, giving them sleepless nights.  For how long do we continue this way?”

“The President’s heart is hardened concerning the Service Chiefs, despite the cries from well-meaning Nigerians to relieve them.”
