According to report reaching oyogist.com, former Nigerian Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, has reportedly called on the Nigerian Federal government to come out of shame and seek for international help in securing the country and also the democratuc system.
He made this known during the inauguration of the Abonnema Ring Road in the Akuku Toru LGA, Rivers state, where he commended the Rivers state Governor Wike, for transforming the state and also challenged the Nigerian government to seek for international help to secure the country.
“I believe it when I said that we should not be ashamed to say we are learning from our colleague on what to do. If we need help, we must seek help from whomever we can get help from and that’s the only way we can develop.
“Today, we are challenged as a country in terms of security. Out of sheer national pride, we have not been able to accept help and assistance from those who know better and who can help us to secure this country.
“This is an opportunity for me to call on our leaders, just like I am saying that other states should learn from Rivers State; we in Nigeria must also accept assistance from other countries in order to secure our borders, secure our democracy, secure our place and secure the citizens of this country.
“That is the only way to go. We must learn from those who have done better than us,” he said.
