Jonathan said that it was impossible to achieve anything substantial by sticking to the old ways.

He said: “The issue of security must be approached from a different dimension. We cannot continue the old way because it is getting out of hand. We hope the federal and state governments will do something about it,” he said.

“Every generation as human being faced problems and that generation must find a way in solving those problems.

“Every government faces problem. The first commercial kidnapping, because it involves money happened in 2006 when I was the governor of Bayelsa state. From that, it moved to terrorism in the north. Now, it is a major problem in the country.

“I want to believe that the federal government in conjunction with state government must design a different approach to this issue. I was there as president and security challenge was there but now, it is getting worse every day and we can’t continue to use the same old method.

“The police, army, DSS and the rest must use technology and I believe the federal government should set up a special unit like we set up EFCC and ICPC to handle corruption cases, so that they will know that their responsibility is to manage this kidnapping, killings and the rest. We can’t continue like this, it is not possible.”
