The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, the All Progressives Congress, APC and the Abundant Nigeria Renewal Party (ANRP) today reeled out their security plans to Nigerians ahead of the 2019 elections. The parties disclosed the plans at the Nigerian Political Parties Discussions Series organized by the Centre for Democracy and Development in Abuja.
One of the spokespersons of the PDP Presidential Campaign Council, Mr Osita Chidoka, said that the biggest security threat facing Nigeria today is lack of identity, explaining that there is no record available on criminal activities of mischievous people. He said the PDP will change the security sector first by moving from a state centric security architecture to people centric architecture.
National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Mr Lanre Isah-Oniru, said that the party has three plans to revamp the security sector in the next phase of its leadership by increasing the number of policemen. He also said that the APC will train security agents on all the details of policing and intelligence gathering and that the welfare of security personnel will be looked into.
Presidential Candidate of ANRP, Mr Tope Fasua, said that a lot of security problems arose from poverty and hunger in the society, adding the party will tackle insecurity through economic stability.
