Insecurity: Stop Lamenting And Confront Challenges, El – Rufai Tells Jonathan

el_rufai_jonathanFormer minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai, yesterday asked President Goodluck Jonathan to stop bemoaning the deteriorating security situation in the country and take appropriate steps to bring the situation under control.

El-Rufai made this stance known when he spoke with newsmen in response to the lamentation by President Jonathan that Nigeria was passing through a challenging security phase in its nationhood.

Jonathan, while speaking at the grand finale of the 2013 Police Week celebrations at the Eagle Square, Abuja, was quoted as saying, “This is quite a trying moment for this country in terms of security. A number of our police officers have lost their lives while serving their fatherland. We have challenges from the South to the North and from the East to the West.”


  1. El-rufai you are a sadist, no doubt. what have Mr President done to you that even when he cough you will attack him?, we know you are envious and jealous of him, so stop seeking for cheap publicity and face you ill looking life.

  2. pls someone should tell MALAM elrufai that GEJ cannot solve the problem that pple like him and his other counterparts in the north created against themselve..Elrufai shud be at the forefront of solving the problem that they created..he should stop diaturbing and throwing tantrum at GEJ..,Elrufai shoul go and solve the problem in his village and region..

  3. Concerned man and kay,u bastard tribalist u will never like the truth to be said. since GEJ came to power wat national security problem has he solve .stop deceiving yourselves. GEJ keep telling the world and nigerians everyday that his government will take action but for how even show how you guys think very stupid. where is his former NSA??what did he say about GEJ security situation in the country.ok,because he is not from the north abi.nonsense guys

  4. War or insurgency is not the solution to resolve critical issues. Only debate and mutual dialogue can solve such big problems especially in the current scenario, stakeholders should consult with each other and resolve their issues for the greater interest of the entire nation. Only then peace and prosperity can sustain in the region.
